Directed by William Brown
Co-Production with TimeLine Theatre Company
September 10 – October 20, 2013
Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place
The Collective, Broadway in Chicago, and TimeLine Theatre will team together this September to bring the Julia Child hit to Michigan Avenue.
Commissioned by TimeLine Theatre Company in 2008, To Master The Art received its world premiere at Time Line in 2010, receiving more than 20 rave reviews and five Jeff Award nominations, including New Work and Production. The play recalls the adventure and romance of Julia and Paul Child’s journey of discovery to Paris during the 1950s. From the bistro where Julia fell in love with food, to the kitchen table where she recreated everything learned during cooking class, to a room where Paul was grilled by U.S. agents about alleged Communist contact, this is the story of a larger-than-life culinary icon and her remarkable husband as they struggle to find themselves as Americans abroad.
