This is a project about the Stardust diner, a restaurant located in Midtown Manhattan, New york. A few months ago I was just walking in the street when I saw this diner. There was a long queue outside, it looked like a place where everybody would like to go. I decided to enter. It was super crowded, while the people were eating The waitress were singing on the the tables. the spotlights, the saturated colors remind me of a stage. The people that work there as waitress aspire to be in Broadway and for me these people represent the ambitions and the difficulties connected to this world.
