BEST DINNER THEATER 

Eat This!

Critics' Choice

We're consumed with the food we eat, from its origins to its preparation to its presentation. And all of the food issues we pile high on our plates — additives, pesticides, biotech, local and organic versus factory farmed, to name just a few — became part of the recipe in Stephanie Roberts' Eat This! KC Chews on the Politics of Food. Roberts, a member of the UMKC Theatre faculty (she also appeared in two productions of Mask of the Broken Heart, a clever one-woman show that she also wrote), along with her team, thought about "What's for dinner" as they interviewed local farmers, chefs, foodies, producers, doctors and parents. The result: a UMKC Theatre show that was entertaining, thought-provoking and relevant. (It was also tasty: Soup was prepared onstage and served after.) "We are what we eat," Roberts agrees in her production notes. "It is true on a molecular level but also on a cultural and societal level as we look to the people who bring us our food." We look to Roberts to reprise Eat This and dish us up some seconds.
