Cleo's Cafe fascinates the very young with puppetry and robots while delighting older children and adults with a comical, intelligent plot. When Cleo wants to buy and manage the cafe where she works and tries to convince Pierre to be her partner, an excitable chef who flies into tantrums over lost recipes and gives musical French lessons, Pierre reluctantly agrees with one condition- Cleo must regain the customers lost by the former manager. A puppeteer offers some unusual help and chaos ensues when his robot goes berserk. A zany canary puppet and a bewildered customer add to the hilarity.
Cleo's Cafe was first presented by Looking Glass Theatre at Little Lake Theatre in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, on August 6, 1980.
