About this show

Appetite Theatre Company ends their 2006 season by presenting the Midwest premiere of Match, the 2004 Broadway favorite by Stephen Belber -- a touching, comedic mystery about three people searching to make a real connection. Mike and Lisa Davis, a married couple from Seattle, arrive at the overheated apartment of accomplished dance teacher and choreographer Tobi Powell, who lives alone in Inwood, on the northern tip of Manhattan. They are there to interview him about his life for a dissertation on dance, but as alcohol flows and the discussion goes from friendly to invasive, it becomes evident that the couple's agenda is as multilayered as the life story that Tobi begins to tell them. The show offers a laugh-out-loud comedy, a probing character study, and a moving narrative laced with mystery and revelation.
