Don't think "dinner theater": There's no half-baked hams stinking up the stage (or the kitchen) in Marlo Hunter's unique theatrical experience. Playwrights Sam Forman, Amy Herzog and Pulitzer finalist Theresa Rebeck (Mauritius) have crafted 20-minute vignettes on the theme of "love and food," which are performed tonight while chef Colin Alevras serves a special menu designed to complement the performances. The icing on the cake? The cast includes Broadway stars Isabel Keating (The Boy from Oz), Frank Wood (Side Man) and Maggie Lacey (Inherit the Wind).
