Don't Dress for Dinner

Don’t Dress for Dinner, the wildly funny comedy by Marc Camoletti (Boeing-Boeing), was nominated for two Tony® Awards and two Outer Critics Circle Awards: Spencer Kayden, Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Play and Outstanding Actress in a Play; William Ivey Long, Best Costume Design of a Play and Outstanding Costume Design (Play or Musical).

 

Bernard’s plans for a romantic rendezvous with his mistress are complete with a gourmet caterer and an alibi courtesy of his friend, Robert. But when Bernard’s wife learns that Robert will be visiting for the weekend, she decides to stay in town for a surprise tryst of her own… setting the stage for a collision course of assumed identities and outrageous infidelities.
 
The cook is Suzette, the lover is Suzanne, the friend is bewildered, the wife is suspicious, the husband is losing his mind and everyone is guaranteed a good time at this hilarious romp through the French countryside. Tony Award nominee John Tillinger directs.
