Matthew Richter: On Dinner Theater by Jon Milazzo Sep 18, 2006

I'm not going to say that Matt Richter is a genius but, well, there you go, I said it.
Dinner theater. Boy does it bring to mind bad performances of 'Godspell' and anemic meals of fettuccine alfredo and iceberg lettuce. There is nothing in this evening that even faintly resembles dinner theater as we know it. Nothing.
Welcome to the new world.
You enter the darkened theater. You are asked to stand in front of the first row of seats. More people file in. They stand in front of you. There is a black curtain blocking the stage. You don't know if you should sit or not. Some people do.

A Toast to Matthew Richter's "Dinner Theater" by Alex M. Dunne Sep 18, 2006

From the opening invitation sung by Sarah Rudinoff to the closing Secret Cream Puffs, this show is full of surprises. Diners play the Board of Directors of a fictional futuristic "Foundation" that commissioned Richter's elders to investigate the simple question "how do we save food?"
Seventy-three years later, it is Richter's role as Director of the Commission, and his assistant played by Jodi-Paul Wooster, to deliver the answer in 16 servings of invention, creation, history and culinary tomfoolery.

Matthew Richter/Dinner Theater:  “sun piercing night ” by Yoko Ott Sep 17, 2006

Dinner Theater is another provocative and risky idea by Matthew Richter that promises to get people talking and thinking, and that’s why I love it. The intimacy of the evening and well-crafted presentation makes me feel like I just went through a rite of passage and now I am part of a secret club. I don’t want to comment too specifically on the food and accompanying narrative because that would spoil the fun. But I will say,  “yum! ”,  “pretty! ” and  “poprocks rule! ”.

OtB Dispatch aka The Bog (for Annie) Sep 15, 2006

I don’t like the name OtB Dispatch much but it’s our feeble attempt at a staff blog, which is really just a cover-up strategy for the fact that I was terrible about updating my own blog. At a minimum, we’re promising weekly posts by our staff and we hope readers will check back often to make sure we’re staying on top of it.

Anyway, we’re psyched about the utility of our new website. Not only do we have more control over our blogs but there are also more interactive features that make the blogging experience so much better.
