The Van Gogh Cafe

  • Fannie's Cafe 5044 West Montrose Avenue Chicago, IL, 60641 United States (map)

Filament Theatre announces the remount of their world premiere production of THE VAN GOGH CAFE, an immersive culinary theatrical experience, based on Newberry Medalist Cynthia Rylant’s 1995 book adapted by Chicago playwright Andrew J. Lampl.  The remount will take place on Saturdays & Sundays @ 5pm from March 11 - March 26, 2017 at Fannie’s Cafe, featuring an all new menu developed by Fannie’s Cafe owner and chef Stephanie Rybandt.

The story centers around ten-year-old Clara who knows that anything can happen at the Van Gogh Cafe, a small roadside diner owned by her father Marc. At the Van Gogh Cafe, it’s not a question of if magic will happen — but when. Filament’s immersive production puts the audience right in the middle of the magic cafe complete with a full multi-course meal served by the characters to enhance the storytelling.
