2020-2021 TOURING SEASON
SCENES FROM AN ITALIAN RESTAURANT
THE MUSIC OF BILLY JOEL AND THE ARTISTS WHO DEFINED THE NEW YORK EXPERIENCE

MAKING ITS TOURING DEBUT IN FEBRUARY, 2020, SCENES FROM AN ITALIAN RESTAURANT IS THE NEWEST SMASH-HIT PRODUCTION FROM MATHEWS ENTERTAINMENT!

Based on the iconic musical storyteller’s hit song (which combines three songs and stories in one and drew its inspiration from The Beatles “Abbey Road”), SCENES FROM AN ITALIAN RESTAURANT fuses Billy Joel’s most popular hits with a captivating storyline around Brenda and Eddie—the paramours depicted in his beloved tune.

You’ll experience the couple’s one-of-a-kind story by taking a musical journey spanning the gentle piano ballads to up-tempo Billy Joel-esque rock that at times enthralls and, at others, tugs on the heart strings, along with a few musical surprises including smash hits from Elton John, Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons, and many more!

SCENES FROM AN ITALIAN RESTAURANT is the newest production in Mathews Entertainment’s extensive catalogue of professional, original touring theatrical and entertainment events.

Mathews Entertainment’s production of BROADWAY IN CONCERT was very professional and up to the standard of our [Straz Center For The Performing Arts] produced shows. It was the best non-Center produced and presented show I’ve ever seen. The audience loved it and responded after each and every number…

Executive Chef and Proprietor

As a fine, intimate and authentic French restaurant located in the heart of the “Horse Capital of the World” Ocala, FL, there is a certain level of quality, ambiance and experience that our very discerning patrons expect. As they say, the road to the Kentucky Derby starts in Ocala. Because of that, we serve guests from all around the globe as well as our regular local clientele. As they currently make their home in Ocala when they are not on tour, we’ve been so fortunate to have Michael and Jessica perform for us when their schedules allow for almost 2 years. Our guests simply love their smooth, vintage vocals which range from the very best of the Great American Songbook, Jazz, Broadway and more. Their talent and song choices are impeccable and they make sure that every one of our guests have a wonderful experience. Their music is the perfect complement to fine cuisine and upscale atmosphere. For obvious reasons, they have quite the following and we look forward to having them a part of the La Cuisine Family as long as their schedules allow.
