Five Course Love

Billed as "A lip-smacking musical comedy". I say - Smack Me for going! Oh boy - A clever idea, yes. Pretty talented actors, yes. Idea transformed into quality entertainment - NOT!
Five vignettes - each revolving around love in a restaurant. The problem, however, is the lack of comedy. It's dumb. Cliche after cliche. Bad puns and double entendres one after another. Each scene also had one too many musical numbers. I wanted to cry out "OK - we GET your stupid humor already!". (i refrained, however).
Honestly - the best part of the whole show - the barbershop quartet like opening announcment about turning off your cell phones and enjoying the show. Really - it was the best number. It was all a downhill trainwreck after that!
