About this show

Commissioned by TimeLine Theatre Company in 2008 and developed here in 2010, To Master the Arts is a look at the lives of Julia and Paul Child as they meet, fall in love and embark on a transatlantic journey of discovery together. Visiting pivotal moments in their lives -- from the table in France where Julia fell in love with food, wine and Paul, to the table in their home where Julia recreated everything she learned in cooking class, to an interrogation room where Paul was grilled by U.S. agents about alleged Communist contacts -- this play unfolds the true story of a larger-than-life culinary icon as she and her husband struggle to find themselves as Americans abroad. To Master the Art marks the first production commissioned by TimeLine to be produced on the company's stage. The development of To Master the Art has been partially supported by The Dramatists Guild Fund.
