Crossing thousands of miles in search of asylum, Babette finds safety in a tiny mountain village. But petty squabbles and personal slights render the pious villagers as frigid and unforgiving as their surroundings. On one snowy December night, in an act of radical generosity, Babette prepares a feast so lavish that it awakens and transforms the brittle hearts in the village.

"A very apt theme for the Taproot’s return to live theater. ... greatly helping to brighten the darkest days of the year."

“BABETTE'S FEAST nourishes the soul and feeds the spirit. It is a sweet story about the beauty of life and finding contentment.”

- Kelly Rogers Flynt, BroadwayWorld

“It is a healing and redemptive moment to experience the beauty of Babette’s artistry, the sensuality of her magnificent food and drink, the abundance of generosity. Old resentments and prejudices fade away in the joy of the moment, and they leave with a new love and appreciation for one another.”

- Lori Ann Reinhall, The Norwegian American

“The trademarks that I’ve come to know and love about any Taproot Theatre production were clearly evident in, “Babette’s Feast”. Top-notch casting, professional performances, and solid storytelling were all on display during the play.”
