Columbia Stages presents

Babette's Feast

By Karen Blixen (Isak Dinesen)
Conceived, Adapted & Directed by Pálína Jónsdóttir

March 8 - 12

In a world of division and demonization of the unknown “other”, Babette the great artist and culinary female genius of Paris, seeks political asylum in a remote and religious community in the north of Norway. Having lost everything in the Communard Revolution - the Rights of Man, her family, her freedom - she humbly serves her austere and pious masters who saved her from total perdition.

On the 100th anniversary of the town Prophet, Babette cooks an extraordinary French feast culminating in a transformative effect on the spirits of the puritanical members of the community, opening their hearts to sensual joy and their minds to the unseen beauty of the world.

"Are you still starving? When are you going to stop...?"

What begins as a nostalgic celebration of a lost art form—and its most famous practitioner—becomes a darkly funny trip into the very question of what it means to suffer, and what it means when suffering becomes a public spectacle. In this inventive adaptation of Kafka's tragicomic story ""A Hunger Artist,"" actor, puppeteer and Sinking Ship co-artistic director Jonathan Levin gives a playful and startling performance as the only person who remembers an artist whose act was simply… to hunger.

The Tank presents


By Jay Stull
Directed by Andrew Neisler

June 1 - June 24
As part of the Save & Print series

Tickets available soon.

This is the true story of nine characters, once played by Meryl Streep, picked to live in a house, and have their lives taped to find out what happens when people stop being, oh I don't know, direct and start getting, well, breathy. The characters in STREEPSHOW! have no knowledge of the actress Meryl Streep and think of themselves as real people with uncannily similar, tragic biographies. But when the winner of STREEPSHOW! is promised the opportunity to rewrite her tragedy, it's every Streep for her exquisitely poised self. This is theater in reality TV drag, actors in Meryl drag, and America's pop music canon in cabaret drag. Episodes One and Two are presented together and separately from Episodes Three and Four.
