Cocktails, disco dancing and porno stars. What better way to spend an evening in Philadelphia?

Or at least that's the thinking of Torano's restaurant, which is producing Leonard Melfi's comedy, Porno Stars At Home, in its Upstairs Theatre space. Opening Jan. 16, the play takes place at a birthday party for an adult film star, who's joined by four actor-friends, all trying to go legit.

Melfi is the OBIE-winning playwright of Birdbath and co-author of Oh! Calcutta!. According to Torano's owner, director Stephen Stahl first brought Porno Stars to Philadelphia's Walnut Street Theatre back in 1991. At the restaurant, however, patrons can enjoy pre-theatre cocktails and post-show disco dancing to 2 AM.

Starring in Porno Stars are Nicole DeRosa, Judy Calabrese, Michael Romeo, Jaime Velez and Sue Ellen Zane.

For tickets ($39.95, includes dinner) and information on Porno Stars At Home, in an open run at Torano's Upstairs Theatre in Philadelphia, call (215) 629-5551. -- By David Lefkowitz
