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).
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
