Spring’s here and you know what that means: FOOD TRUCK SEASON! Oh hell yes! And, Westport Country Playhouse is helping you to get your fix in early with their annual Season Kick-off Block Party at 25 Powers Court. The event is free and open to the public and runs from 4-7 on April 9: that’s a Saturday, btw.
In terms of trucks, they’ve got some of the best in the county (and state if you ask us) . . . just look at this list:
- Bounty Burger
- Skinny Pines
In addition, Shake Shack will be giving out free frozen custards for you to devour. While you’re nomming away on some great food truck grub, you can check out the music of Chenot. But, that’s not all! Nope!
There will be plenty of activities going on, there will be prizes, and even chances to take a peek backstage. You’ll also get the chance to get 25% off of single tickets, subscriptions or flex passes to the five productions in the 2016 season.
Here’s more from Westport Country Playhouse about their shows this season:
Westport Country Playhouse’s 5-play 2016 season includes two Tony Award-winning plays staged in repertory (alternating daily), directed by Mark Lamos, from May 3 to 29: “Art” by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton; and “Red” by John Logan. Each of the plays is about art: making it, owning it, the anguish of creating it, and the ache of believing in it. The recent Off-Broadway comedy hit, “Buyer & Cellar” by Jonathan Tolins, is about a young, out-of-work actor who winds up working for a well-known star named Barbra in the mall she built in her Malibu mansion, playing June 14 – July 3. Another recent Off-Broadway piece, “The Invisible Hand,” a riveting and relevant new thriller by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar, author of Broadway’s “Disgraced,” will run July 19 – August 6, directed by David Kennedy, Playhouse associate artistic director. When an American futures trader finds himself kidnapped and held hostage in Pakistan, he knows the only way to get home is to do what he does best: play the market like his life depends on it. Joe Orton’s sexy comedy, “What the Butler Saw,” offering a little blackmail, and a lot of innuendo, will play from August 23 – September 10, directed by John Tillinger, who helmed a recent, critically acclaimed production in Los Angeles. Lerner and Loewe’s “Camelot,” a freshly inventive take on one of the foremost musicals in the American canon, will run October 4 – 30, directed by Mark Lamos. The classic love triangle of King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, and Sir Lancelot will be a reimagined version.
