Dinner Theatre is a food-themed successor to Monsterpiece Theater, introduced in Sesame Street Season 37. The series parodies plays and films to stress the importance of mealtime and healthy eating habits.

Nearly every segment stars the same four Anything Muppets; an Orange Gold dad (Marty Robinson), a Lavender mother (Fran Brill), a Fat Blue daughter (Leslie Carrara), and a Green son (Joey Mazzarino). One segment features a Pumpkin uncle (Eric Jacobson) and a Magenta cousin (Jennifer Barnhardt).

The Shalom Sesame video, "It's Passover, Grover!", features a similar segment where an Anything Muppet family stars in a matzoh-related parody of Les Misérables.
