TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: 42nd Street Moon Announces Its Final 2018-2019 Production, Michael Patrick Gaffney's Hysterical One-Man Show “The Oldest Living Cater Waiter”

Jun 08, 2019
San Francisco’s 42nd Street Moon has announced its final production of the 2018-2019 season, Michael Patrick Gaffney’s original one-man show “The Oldest Living Cater Waiter.” Written and Performed by Gaffney and directed by Ken Sonkin, “The Oldest Living Cater Waiter” runs from June 23 through July 9, 2019 at San Francisco’s Gateway Theatre (215 Jackson St, San Francisco, CA 94111).

“The Oldest Living Cater Waiter” offers up delicious insights into Gaffney’s complicated and hilarious careers as both a professional actor and a high-end waiter to the stars. He cooks up numerous characters from his past with just the right amount of sauciness, Shakespeare, and a soupçon of self-discovery. Come celebrate one man's journey of a life in the theater.

This production is 75 minutes of raw entertainment (there is no intermission). There is something relatable for everyone in this tale of a man’s dream…and his side gig. As he states, “If it is indeed true that we are what we repeatedly do then I am a cater waiter who occasionally has the good fortune to be an actor. This show started off as a fun little show about my dishy adventures in the catering industry, but somewhere along the way it turned into a memoir of sorts. No one’s life turns out the way they think it will and some people are better at letting go of youthful dreams and getting on with life. That would not be me.”

Tickets range from $20 - $45 and can be purchased through the Box Office at (415) 255-8207 or online at
