In this performance, his first at The Kitchen, Michael Smith focuses his attention on daily actions, routines, and methods by creating a disconnection between the audience and the performer. The public becomes aware of the construction of repetitive gestures by always knowing what will happen to the character before the event even occurs. In Let's See What's in The Refrigerator, Smith introduces a more modernist type of theater and attempts to erase the thin division between popular entertainment and fine art.
