The Irondale Ensemble Project is as close as we come these days to the Elizabethan acting companies that once presented Shakespeare’s plays to the Earl of Leicester, Sir Francis Drake and the Virgin Queen of England. ...What is on offer is the miracle of the word made flesh. I wish you joy in it.” —Lewis Lapham, editor of Lapham’s Quarterly

Conni's Avant Garde Restaurant:
The Mothership Landing

September 15-25, 2011
Thursdays through Sundays
Doors open at 6:30pm with bar and passed appetizers;
Curtain promptly at 7:00pm

Conni’s Avant Garde Restaurant (a Time Out New York favorite and Village Voice Choice), is a group of bold (if fictional) theatrical performers, devoted to the ongoing celebration of the work of Conni Convergence, the beloved (and again, fictional) icon of stage and screen.

Hailed as “devilish dinner theatre” by The New York Daily News, the event transforms Irondale's raw theatre space into a lush banquet hall—complete with a visible kitchen—where each night, guests are treated to a gourmet-dining experience, with food carefully prepared on the premises and served with charismatic flourish by self-proclaimed geniuses of the avant-garde theater.

Celebrate the company's prodigal return to Brooklyn this September with a feast of locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. Note: theatre ticket includes complimentary 5-course meal and table wine.
