To Master The Art Review: Julia Childs Again, This Time Online

This play about cookbook author Julia Child is a recipe for how not to do online theater. “To Master the Art” falls flat, despite some great ingredients.
This is not how I expected to react. Forced to spend more time at home, and no time in restaurants, I’ve rediscovered the kitchen….What was evident from the outset was the quality of the cast led by Karen Janes Woditsch…
But the workmanlike script of “To Master the Art” by William Brown and Doug Frew goes over much the same story as the 2009 Nora Ephron film “Julie & Julia” (minus the Julie part, thank Heaven.) ….Meryl Streep’s Oscar-nominated performance as Julia Child in the movie is currently available on Netflix.
