The Big Meal


Playwrights Horizons is firmly in the midst of its six-play smorgasbord of a season. Its latest platter: The Big Meal, a multigenerational family saga by Dan LeFranc. Directed by man-of-the-moment Sam Gold, the script begins in a suburban restaurant and never really leaves, even as 80 years and several generations pass by like so many courses.

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 2 p.m.; Sundays, 7 p.m. Starts: March 1. Continues through April 8, 2012
