Faena Theater: Revenge Is a Dish Best Served Cold

Arts, Miami

Faena Theater draws the curtain on its newest show. Do you have the stomach for revenge? Find out on October 18 during the highly-anticipated launch of Faena Theater’s delicious dinner and theater production, The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover.

Based on the audacious, macabre cult classic 1989 film, this immersive theater experience plunges guests into a gory, yet seductive imbroglio world where revenge is the final course. Elaborate set design transforms Faena Theater into the menacing “Le Hollandais” Restaurant, the show’s main setting. Here a dramatic love triangle narrated by the restaurant’s omniscient cook unfolds between a ruthless restaurant owner, his wife, and her lover.

Crafted to seduce your every sense, the sybaritic three-course menu comes from Miami culinary luminary Michelle Bernstein—a Michelin-starred James Beard winner—who puts a distinctly Floridian twist on classic French and European cuisine.

Actors blend seamlessly with the waitstaff as they wend their way through the audience, drawing guests into the gripping logomachy and mayhem that challenges them to question their deepest human instincts. Channeling elements of classic film noir, Faena’s boundary-pushing production will keep you on the edge of your seat as it blurs the lines between fantasy and reality.
