Hail To The Chef

Michel Nischan’s connection to the Westport Country Playhouse is important, but culinary and casual:  He feeds theater-goers before and after shows.

Yet on Friday, May 14 the owner/founder of The Dressing Room takes a few steps east, to make his theatrical debut.  He’s got a walk-on appearance in “She Loves Me,” the musical comedy that’s been extended through May 15.

His role?  A chef, naturally (pun intended).

Michel won his spot last November.  He — okay, his wife Lori — bid $2,000 in a silent auction, at the 2009 Playhouse Gala.  She outlasted 3 others — all Playhouse patrons (and, presumably, Dressing Room regulars).

Michel wanted the role for 2 reasons:  He loves the Playhouse, and figured it would be fun.

He won’t tell “06880” what the role entails — “I’m sworn to secrecy” — but says he must prepare for it.

Good luck, Michel.  Break a leg.

And then go back to your real roles rolls next door.
