"MBS Productions' DREAM CAFÉ by Alejandro de la Costa is a truly stunning and revolutionary experience for the audience... this is de la Costa's (and MBS Productions') finest work to date. If I could, I'd see Dream Café every night, every show." Reviewed by ASSOCIATE THEATER CRITIC Laura L. Watson -John Garcia's THE COLUMN
"IT WAS STUNNING. It drew gasps and tears from not only me but the entire audience. In addition to the genius that is the script, this particular night, there wasn't a single missed beat by the actors... It wasn't until it was over and I was contemplating (and comparing notes) in my car did I truly begin to understand the different story I had experienced. Only then was I beginning to truly grasp all the stories within this script and the power of each and every one of them."-
"a thought-provoking night of theatre.... I am tempted to return to the Stone Cottage Theatre to see Dream Café in a different sequence of scenes...The acting is sensational. Mark-Brian Sonna as Bryan hits all the right notes...Dream Café is an experimental theatrical experience that I highly recommend. I’m not sure what story will unfold on your visit, but you will leave with a distinctive, pleasurable taste in your mouth.

"Alejandro de la Costa has turned real life into six vignettes about sex and love — anecdotal, quirky tales of one-night stands, online love and even a dramatic break-up....and came up with a wonderfully poignant script...Director Charles Ballinger directed this with a precision that gives the actors room to create worthwhile characters while knowing that one day they could be the hero and next, the heel. The actors execute each night differently with no time to convene beforehand, but Ballinger’s taken de la Costa’s play and turned the scenes into gems...Dream Café is a worthy stop — multiple stops, actually." Rich Lopez, Dallas Voice
"It's such a unique concept. Every performance is an experiment in happenstance. It's like a choose your own adventure book but obviously more insightful and real." Broadwayworld.com
Lauded as the best play of 2010 by numerous critics, it gives us much pleasure to bring back this gound breaking play for a limited run.
Bryan is a single man trying to find his perfect mate. He keeps running up against obstacles preventing him from falling in love. The problem? Men.
Six scenes of his life are presented. What makes the play unique is that each night the same six scenes will be presented in random order as picked by the audience. The result is an almost guaranteed different play nightly because there are 720 possible combinations.
This play is intended for mature audiences due to language, adult situations, and nudity. No one under 18 will be admitted.
