Kelly Maxwell and Matt Sloan“One of the most fun nights you can have in Madison” – critic Amanda Finn,

Are We Delicious? uses the finest ingredients: Madison entertainment professionals who know how to make a great show when the pressure is on.  The ensemble gathers a week before opening night with no preconceived notions, just the seed of an idea. Working together, they build an all-original show for each other, writing and rehearsing every day until the premiere. Everyone writes, everyone acts and no one can rest until the final curtain.

“Are We Delicious? ‘impresario’ Tony Trout wants audiences to know he’s placing his ensemble in a crisis situation on purpose. It’s a way, he says, of making great work. It’s also a lot of fun.” – critic Laura Jones –

Miranda Hawk and Doug ReedAre We Delicious? uses the finest ingredients: our writing/acting ensembles include professional actors, award-winning playwrights, YouTube stars, stand-up comedians, improv actors and lead musicians in well-known bands, all of them living and working in Madison. Delicious is made for Madison, by Madison in Madison. See what we can do.

"We believe we can make a great show in a week, or that people can. We want to be those people." – Tony Trout, founder – feature article
