Round House grows a beard — James Beard, that is.

I love to eat

Nick Olcott portrays James Beard, who brought fine cooking and a jolly personality to the small screen in 1946 — long before Julia Child, Emeril or any other Food Network star came along. In its area premiere production of James Still’s I Love to Eat, Round House bills Beard, namesake for the culinary arts’ top awards, as “America’s first foodie.” Prepare to leave the theater hungry â€" and ready to make “the perfect hamburger.” Closes this Sunday, Nov. 4. Round House Theatre, 4545 East-West Highway, Bethesda. Call 240-644-1100 or visit roundhousetheatre.org.
