Chef DeJuan Roy, Executive Chef for the Alhambra Theater and Dining has done it once again. He has created a special menu for “Butterflies are Free” that is consistent with the show’s ‘Manhattan’ theme. Your food is plated and served to your table. Take a look at the “LIST” photos and see what you’re missing if you don’t attend the show from February 18 through March 22, 2015.
About “Butterflies Are Free”: Loosely based on the life of attorney Harold Krents, the plot revolves around a Manhattan blind man whose controlling mother disapproves of his relationship with a free-spirited hippie. The title was inspired by a passage in Charles Dickens’ “Bleak House”: “I only ask to be free. The butterflies are free. Mankind will surely not deny to Harold Skimpole what it concedes to the butterflies.”
“A blind man moves into his own apartment against the wishes of his overprotective mother, and befriends the freethinking young woman next door”. – Written by Shannon Patrick Sullivan
