Kevin Boggs (Rodger) is a local actor, storyteller, teacher and trainer. You may have seen him in last years’ “& Afterwards” – his Fringe Festival solo-show. Or perhaps you have seen him at one of his several restaurant gigs included such touted haunts as Ceiba, Rasika or The Source by Wolfgang Puck.
Catherine Deadman (Rhonda Lee) Catherine is so tickled to be a part of The Dish and to take on a, um, Southern lady like Rhonda Lee! Thanks to Jenny and Strother for folding her into this delicious mix. Catherine appreciates restaurants with lots of vegetarian and vegan options. She’s mistrustful of people who don’t like sweets. She doesn’t cook, but thanks to the research she’s done for The Dish, she’s pretty sure she could whip up a mean dump cake.
