"After a night on the town, what better way to end the evening than with a sumptuous dessert and a hot musical performance?" the producers ask. The Dessert Show is served each Friday and Saturday evening at 11 PM and is billed as "the show after the show," with guests feasting on "a sexy buffet of decadent cakes, creamy confections and forbidden pleasures."

The Dessert Show is separate from the Chef's Theater dinner and brunch shows that play Tuesday Sunday with celebrity chefs (opening night is April 14).

Unlike Chef's Theater, the dessert buffet does not offer a cooking demonstration or a chef, but does have sweets and music and dancing.

Upcoming performers for the dessert shows include Michael Cavanaugh (of Movin' Out) April 16-17; Jason Robert Brown (Tony Award-winning composer, Parade, The Last 5 Years) April 23-24; Daphne Rubin Vega (Rent, The Rocky Horror Show) April 30 May 1; Andrew Lippa (composer, Off-Broadway's The Wild Party) May 7-8; Alice Ripley (Side Show, Sunset Boulevard) May 14-15; and Adam Pascal (Rent, Aida) May 21-22.

The Supper Club is at 240 W. 47th Street.
