Alton Brown, one of today’s most dynamic personalities, will be bringing a whole lot of flavor to the Weidner Center on Feb. 13.
Famous for his award-winning book, “I’m Just Here for the Food” (2002), and Food Network series, “Good Eats” (1999-2012), Brown is now earning his keep on the comedic stage.
“Brown is a very successful author, producer, creator and host,” says Diane Nagy, director of marketing at the Weidner Center. “All of this made it easy for us to want to bring such an animated and well-known personality to the Weidner Center.”
“Alton Brown Live!” has been active for just over a year, and emulates much of his former show, “Good Eats.” Brown combines culinary demonstrations, musical performances, science and more into a two-hour window.
Brown’s family friendly show takes twists and turns at unexpected moments, which keeps the crowd on the edge of their seats the entire time. As Nagy explains, the show is both interactive and educational.
“The show will successfully blend all his creative elements of cooking and the science behind it in an interactive and comedic look at food,” says Nagy. Brown’s show appeals to every age demographic as a result. Whether you are a child with a desire to learn about food science, or a foodie with years of experience as a chef, “Alton Brown Live!” will keep you entertained.
“Alton Brown Live!” also contains a “poncho zone” in the audience. Those daring enough to sit in the front can expect a shower or two of food.
“The Poncho Zone was implemented to complement the audience interaction and to make sure our patrons have protection (just in case), as there will be ‘extreme’ food preparations,” comments Nagy.
This all contributes to one of the most engaging stage shows in America today, one that you will not want to miss.
The show begins at 7:30 p.m. and tickets can be purchased at ticketstaronline.com or the Weidner Center box office. For further details on the show, visit weidnercenter.com.
