Raging Skillet Plays Cambridge

By Charlotte Robinson, December 10, 2018
There will be a special one night only reading of the play “Raging Skillet” by Jacques Lamarre that’s based on the memoir of the same title by Chef Rossi at the Central Square Theater 450 Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge, MA on Monday December 17th at 7P. The reading directed by Sasha Bratt features Lee Mikeska Gardner, Greg Maraio & Annette Miller. “Raging Skillet” is one woman's story about cooking her way through some of life's biggest challenges in New York City's most unlikely kitchens. As the rebel caterer parties at the launch event for her new tell-all book her Orthodox Jewish mother shows up unannounced twenty years after she died & guilt trips her into a reckoning with her rebellious past, her time with a Hassidic community in Brooklyn & the real meaning of a Jewish home. When asked what she would like to accomplish with her work Chef Rossi stated, “I think I would most like to see the empowerment of women especially in the culinary field would be great. I’d like to see the empowerment of young gay adults & gay teenagers. I’d like to see the empowerment of the underdog in general. I’m kind of a runaway, throwaway, white trash little kid from New Jersey who went from literally being homeless to whatever this thing is called Chef Rossi. I just think that my story really empowers people that are down & out or the underdog or minorities & I just hope I can help.” Tickets are free but reservations are recommended.
