Looking to add a little bit of showbiz flair to your holiday hosting this season? Members of the theatre community share their treasured Thanksgiving recipes, which are sure to elicit a standing ovation from your guests.
To borrow a singular lyric from Fiddler on the Roof, the theatre and the holidays have something in common: "Tradition." Americans gather together with friends and family each Thanksgiving to reflect and give thanks – part of that tradition is delicious food.
Playbill.com reached out to members of the theatre community to share their favorite recipes, some of which have been gracing their Thanksgiving tables for generations.
(Disclaimer: Playbill is not responsible if these recipes induce singing, tap dancing or spontaneous applause during your holiday dinner).
Dinner with the Boys is the deliciously hilarious new comedy starring Dan Lauria (“The Wonder Years”, Lombardi), Ray Abruzzo (“The Sopranos”) and Richard Zavaglia (“Donnie Brasco”). When two wise guys from the old neighborhood, Charlie (Lauria) and Dom (Zavaglia), find themselves at odds with the family, they must serve up perfectly seasoned performances with their puttanesca to escape danger. This odd couple awaits their fate as they prepare dinner for their special guests. It’s an evening filled with belly laughs, killer plot twists and plenty of garlic. The only question remaining is “will this dinner be their last meal?"
