A Taste of Things to Come celebrates the friendships of four women during the 1950s and 60s. An all-female cast and band bring a saucy, curvy zest to this exciting new musical comedy, but also some serious food for thought about sociopolitical changes spanning the era. Things in the kitchen begin to heat up as differences of opinion on sex, race, and women’s roles rise to the surface. Life changes for these women – and for the country – when they come to realize that there’s more to life than cooking the perfect casserole.
In an age that believed the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, they discover that the way to a woman’s heart is through her best friends.
A Taste of Things to Come was originally produced at Bucks County Playhouse, New Hope, PA: Alexander Fraser, Robyn Goodman, Stephen Kocis, Josh Fiedler, Producers.
