Liquid Diet: Water Main Break Causes Chef's Theatre to Go Dark

News   Liquid Diet: Water Main Break Causes Chef's Theatre to Go Dark
Times Square needs a plumber.

Last week, a sprinkler system malfunction caused a minor flood onstage at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre, causing Caroline, or Change to scotch its May 14 performance.

Now, just two blocks to the south, a heavy rain over this past weekend led to a leak in the ceiling at The Supper Club, where Chef's Theater: A Musical Feast is playing. A water main broke and the downpour knocked out all of the automation and electronics in the theatre.

The show has cancelled performances through May 29 while the damage is repaired. Performances will resume on June 1 with Marcus Samuelsson (Aquavit) cooking.

The unique show in Manhattan's theatre district mixes cooking class with legit cabaret — song and supper, if you will. It underwent some changes after May 9.

Starting May 13, a new regular "cast" made up of Mylinda Hull (42nd Street) and Paige Price (Saturday Night Fever) assisted a famed chef in the kitchen. As was the case since preview performances started March 30, a special musical guest also performed.
