The recently-ventured, unique Oswego business, Theatre Du Jour, will launch its inaugural restaurant tour of three venues in the Port City with performances of "Love Letters" by Buffalo-born A.R. (Pete) Gurney in early February.

The restaurant tour is a tribute to Valentine's Day and a great new idea for a one-of-a-kind date night in Oswego. The tour will include The American Foundry, La Parrilla, and Bistro 197 and features Banna Rubinow, Mark Cole and director Bobby Fontana.

"The concept is quite simple: combine the best local talent with the best local cuisine," said Tammy Wilkinson, current producer for the Oswego Players and Artistic Director of Theatre Du Jour. "With amazing food, fun photo op's, contests, giveaways, live music and cocktails, it's so much more than dinner and a show, it's an experience."

The recent success producing her first-ever dinner theater held last February at La Parrilla restaurant was the inspiration for Theatre Du Jour.

"As producer for the Oswego Players, my goal was to raise awareness, think out-of-the-box and bring more folks to the theater," said Wilkinson. "With that in mind, we brought one of our main stage shows out into the community this past February. The alternative venue, a popular local bistro in Oswego, was filled to standing room only."

One true highlight of Theatre Du Jour is that it is an interactive, collaborative experience.

"Because it is held in such an intimate setting, you feel like a part of actual play," said Judy Roberts, who will be attending the February event.

Tickets for the touring production will be available at each performance venue, as well as other locations like iHeart Oswego, 29 W. Seneca St. For more information about Theatre Du Jour and the upcoming restaurant tour, visit the website at www.dujourcny.com.
