About the Show:
I Love to Eat
By James Still
On the Main Stage at the Gerding Theater at the Armory
This new play celebrates the life and talent of a Portland original – James Beard. Before Julia Child, before today’s proliferation of cooking shows and networks, there was James Beard, the first TV chef. He brought fine cooking to the small screen in 1946 and helped establish an American cuisine, but as is often the case with pioneers his early efforts on screen have been lost. He went on to become America’s first “foodie,” and the award bearing his name is still the prize most coveted by chefs. Playwright James Still invites you meet the man described as “the face and belly of American gastronomy” in this play that recreates an evening in James Beard’s home. PCS will join with Portland’s nationally-recognized food community to honor our homegrown culinary star.
Bonus! Join us at noon on January 20 for a special backstage tour to explore the behind the scenes aspects of the theater, including the set, green room, dressing rooms, wigs and costume shop.
