Weekend shows April 24–May 10 with dinner menus

Half Moon Theatre opens its inaugural spring season at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) with The Fantasticks, a musical about a boy and a girl who fall in love, their two fathers, and the wall that separates their two houses, from April 24 through May 10 (weekends only).

Under the direction of Michael Schiralli, Half Moon Theatre puts its own spin on the Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt classic, with such hit songs as “Try to Remember,” “Soon It’s Gonna Rain,” and “They Were You.”

Performances are Fridays, April 24, May 1 and 8, at 8 p.m.; Saturdays, April 25, May 2 and 9, at 8 p.m.; and Sundays, April 26, May 3 and 10, at 2 p.m.

The CIA is holding a block of dinner reservations at their restaurants for HMT patrons, with a $39 pre-theater, three-course menu before performances. During the run of the show, Caterina de’Medici and Pangea are open on Friday evenings, American Bounty and Bocuse are open on both Friday and Saturday evenings, and all restaurants are closed on Sundays.
