Bernard’s plans for a romantic rendezvous with his chic Parisian 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 mistaken identities and outrageous infidelities, with more twists than a corkscrew. 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.

“If you want to enjoy an evening of sophisticated laughter, go see ‘Don’t Dress For Dinner.’ And if you just want two hours of glorious laughter, do likewise.” – Press-Telegram

“Everyone in the ensemble is outstanding … Like French burlesque in the 60’s, there’s a lot of choreographed physical comedy that requires split-second timing; so kudos to the entire cast for their nimble calisthenics.” – Grunion Gazette

“… hilarious (and pitch-perfect) latest from Long Beach’s International City Theatre … Don’t Dress For Dinner ends their 2013 season on a hilarious high note indeed.” – StageSceneLA

“it strikes me as funnier than Boeing-Boeing.” – LA Stage Watch

“The script is a play of comedic virtuosity and is performed with great agility by the finely tuned cast. Marvelously entertaining, Don’t Dress For Dinner is an edge-of-your-seat production that moves quickly and never tires.” – Culver City Front Page

“Director Todd Nielsen works the material to maximum effect, and has seen to it that his cast hits the play’s high points with pitch-perfect comic timing.” –

“If you squeeze one weekend engagement in before Thanksgiving and the holidays, make it an outing to see this production.” –
