The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover

Arts, Lifestyle, Miami

Brace yourself for a spellbindingly sadistic story based on the critically acclaimed film by Peter Greenaway, and brought to life by reimagined pop music, riveting dance, and outstanding food and drink. 

Check your morals at the door of Le Hollandais restaurant as you play a part in an intoxicating revenge tragedy that will leave you questioning your deepest human desires.

Transport into the macabre extravagance of the 1980’s with The Cook, who stirs up the drama in the tumultuous relationship of an ill-mannered mobster-turn-restaurant owner, the Thief, and his Wife, who has a wandering eye.

The Cook serves up grandiose dishes from a menu created by James Beard award-winner Michelle Bernstein that is a nod to the lavish European cuisine of the time with a South Florida twist before it all takes a tragic turn.

This transportive experience blurs the lines between fantasy and reality, cast and audience, for a truly unique evening of mind-bending dining and entertainment.

Revenge is a dish best served cold. Do you have the stomach for it?
