REVIEWS

When a hired chef is mistaken for a mistress, a quartet of philandering snoots wind up paying for more than just dinner, in the Roundabout’s rollicking revival of the late Marc Camoletti’s companion piece to “Boeing-Boeing.” As far as French sex farces go, this one is magnifique—light, enjoyable fare, plump with naughty jokes and nice comedic performances, despite a slightly muddy second act. Ben Daniels and Adam James are particularly funny as Robert and Bernard, best friends who happen to be sharing the same woman—Bernard’s wife (the delightfully frosty Patricia Kalember). But it is Jennifer Tilly, as Bernard’s mistress, and Spencer Kayden, as the ill-fated cook, who wind up stealing the audience’s heart.

- The New Yorker CONTINUE READING
Like her character, Kayden sheds her initial mousey appearance and grows increasingly bolder and more rubber limbed as the antics proceed. It's a striking comic performance precisely because it's so plausibly grounded in the real world. Would that everyone in the production followed that lead.... While the mayhem in Don't Dress for Dinner never rises to the dizzying heights of Boeing-Boeing, there are plenty of gut-busting moments to savor.
