About This Show

The Busboy was conceived by the Italian director Vittorio Capotorto from a simple premise: in New York actors often work in restaurants, so why not let them act while working? Interacting with restaurant guests and staff, the cast occasionally serves food while revealing the conflicts, marvels, and complexity of human experience, and the cross-cultural drama behind each table and in the kitchen. The story interweaves dramatic elements into a comic scenario: A flamboyant Catholic Chef is trying to seduce the incompetent Manager who is obsessed with the Waitress, the Waiter’s fiancée.
