The newest work from the Majestic’s Producing Director Danny Eaton, Betty and the Patch, makes its debut as the first show of 2022.
The contemporary comedy/drama is set at The Patch, a destination restaurant with a reputation of having food that’s good and plentiful, with the privacy that makes it ideal for intimate get-togethers.
The Patch has been run by Betty Borelli for years, but a recent kitchen fire has forced a shutdown.
Determined to reopen, Betty has recruited her daughter Cristina, a successful attorney, to come home and help.
But that’s not the only reason.
Betty has had recent health issues and she wants Cristina and chef Bobo Henderson to ensure the restaurant’s future.
There are family secrets as well that need to be finally revealed, and recent visits from past friends have added to the urgency.
Will Cristina stay?
Will Bobo finally let Cristina know he’s in love with her?
And just who is Cristina’s father?
On September 1, 2021, the Majestic Theater staff met with the West Springfield Health Department, and the following COVID-related guidelines are now in place at the Majestic:
This standard, Majestic officials noted, is the same as the one put into place by all theaters in Boston, Hartford and Broadway. In addition, all Majestic staff, performers and production crew have been fully vaccinated.
ABOUT THE MAJESTIC THEATER
Locally-produced professional live theater since 1997
Before it was a live theater, local residents may remember the Majestic Theater as a movie house. It has since been renovated and reimagined to bring live performances to the West Springfield area, giving local performance and technical artists the opportunity to thrive. Every season at the Majestic consists of five productions (including at least one musical) featuring local actors. In addition to the subscription season, the summer includes children's theater, concerts, plays, open mic nights, and improvisational comedy shows. Recently named the best place to see live theater in the Pioneer Valley in the Valley Advocate Readers' Poll, the Majestic continues to offer great theater thanks to the support and generosity of its 4200+ subscribers.
