A Lynchian immersive dining experience where nothing is what it seems.
The murder of two chefs at a roadhouse on Highway 2 brings Special Agent Eliot Penn (Evan Mosher) to Lost Falls hot on the trail of the malevolent forces that threaten the fabric of the small town. Everyone is a suspect and nothing is what it seems as Nordo's Culinarium transforms into the scene of the crime. Diners watch interrogations unfold and reality bend in a show that is only slightly less surreal than the menu that accompanies it.
Gregory Award Winner Ryan Higgins, Ayo Tushinde, Opal Peachey, Carol Thompson, Ronnie Hill, and Laura Dux round out the cast with Erin Brindley directing and designing the menu and Terry Podgorski writing the script and transforming the Culinarium into Nordo's Hideout.
Award winning composer Annastasia Workman has written a score that integrates Angelo Badalamenti style cool jazz and raucous roadhouse blues with Devin Bannon on lead vocals and a live band including Matt Manges on drums and Dave Pascal on bass.
