Re Eating and Drinking scenes:

There's a hilarious couple of wedding feast / witch feast scenes in Act
4 of Heywood's _The Late Lancashire Witches_, including the magical
appearance of food drawn onto the stage by pulleys.

You could always give Jessica and Lorenzo a picnic under the stars,
forgetting for the moment that Lorenzo is a scumbag, exclusionist
Christian and Jessica a doomed renegade Jew.  You could play it for
sweetness and music, which would be a novel interpretation, apparently.

In response to Drew Whitehead's question:

I don't know if it's still running, but I saw a production of the
"RSC's" Complete Works...(Abridged) in Toronto about a month ago.  It
was quite entertaining, and I have to agree with Dave Evett that one of
the best parts of the production is the reading of To be or not to
be...a touching moment that works so well since it's unexpected...it
sort of reminds everyone how we came to be there in the first place.
The entire second act is devoted to progressively efficient renditions
of Hamlet...the backwards 1-min. version still makes me giggle when I
think about it.

Re: Shaula Evans' query for scenes that involve drinking:

I don't know if this is quite what you're looking for, but Tmp. 2.2,
Stephano's discovery of the "most delicate monster", can be very funny
if played to accentuate Stephano's drunkenness.
