The Theatre Cafe has announced that they have teamed up with West End legend Mazz Murray to release a “stagey” cookbook, packed with food and drink from performers across the industry. The book is announced on 16 March 2021, one year since the West End went dark due to the global pandemic.
Over the past year, we have all had to spend more time than usual in our kitchens. So what have our theatrical friends been cooking up? Filled with scrumptious snacks, mouth-watering meals, delectable desserts and stunning cocktails – all with stagey names, of course – And 5, 6, 7, EAT allows theatre-lovers and fellow industry members to get up close and personal with their friends and favourite performers.
The cookbook will be in hardcover and is priced at £25 plus P&P, with a portion of proceeds going toward theatre charity Acting for Others.
And 5, 6, 7, EAT – The Theatre Cafe Cookbook features over 70 recipes from a host of stage performers and creatives, including Fabian Aloise, Tracie Bennett, Courtney Bowman, Alexandra Burke, Oscar Conlon-Morrey, Louise Dearman, Nicole Raquel Dennis, Brenda Edwards, Kerry Ellis, Alice Fearn, Carrie Hope Fletcher, Ben Forster, Ruthie Henshall, Rob Houchen, Michael Jibson, Idriss Kargbo, Bonnie Langford, Hannah Lowther, Millie O’Connell, John Owen-Jones, Dianne Pilkington, Arlene Phillips, Jodie Prenger, Golda Rosheuvel, Jenna Russell, Jodie Steele, Danielle Steers, Rachel Tucker, Marisha Wallace and, of course, Mazz Murray plus many, many more.

Joe Davey, Owner of The Theatre Cafe, said: “We are thrilled to finally be releasing a cookbook, and thought it appropriate to commemorate one year since theatres closed on 16 March 2020. It’s been tough for our industry, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. Until then, we will go on supporting everyone as much as we can, and continue to fly our flag for the Arts.”
Mazz Murray said; “Because London theatre has been so dark, my theatre family and some of my stage-star friends have joined the amazing Theatre Cafe to make this recipe cookbook of all our foodie favs. Shakespeare would never have believed that this year ‘food be the music of love’ – so, eat up!”
Mazz Murray is a singer and performer well-known for her roles in West End productions of Mamma Mia!, Chicago, We Will Rock You and the upcoming Sunset Boulevard at Alexandra Palace Theatre.
The Theatre Cafe Ltd is located at 99 St Martin’s Lane, Covent Garden, and operates as a Cafe, ticket seller, advertising agency and performance venue.
A portion of proceeds will go toward Acting for Others, a charity that provides emotional and financial support to all theatre workers in times of need. www.actingforothers.co.uk @actingforothers
