ALTON BROWN MAKES BROADWAY DEBUT THANKSGIVING WEEK
Eight Performances Announced for “Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science” at Barrymore Theatre November 22-27
NEW YORK – July 18, 2016 – Television personality and author Alton Brown has announced “Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science” will make its Broadway debut Thanksgiving week for eight performances at the Barrymore Theatre. Brown created a new form of entertainment – the live culinary variety show – with his “Edible Inevitable Tour,” which played in over 100 cities with more than 150,000 fans in attendance. The first leg of Eat Your Science sold 100,000 tickets in the 40 cities Brown visited.
Scheduled shows include November 22, 23: 8pm; November 25, 26: 2pm and 8pm; and, November 27: 1pm and 5:30pm.
Brown says fans in the Big Apple can expect a cornucopia of “all new everything including songs, new comedy, new puppets and bigger and better potentially dangerous food demonstrations. I can neither confirm nor deny that we've given the Broadway version of ‘Eat Your Science’ a distinctly Thanksgiving flavor, but wouldn't that be cool?" Critics and fans have raved about the interactive components of Brown’s shows. He promises “plenty of new therapy inducing opportunities during our audience participation segments. I don’t want to give too much away, but this time we’re going to play a little game.”
Brown has a knack for mixing together science, music and food into two hours of pure entertainment. “Plus, you’ll see things I’ve never been allowed to do on TV.”
Brown, author of the James Beard award winning “I’m Just Here for the Food” and New York Times bestselling sequence “Good Eats” is releasing his new cookbook through Ballantine Books (an imprint of Random House) on September 27, and it is available for preorder now. “Alton Brown: EveryDayCook”, or EDC as Brown calls it, is a collection of more than 100 personal recipes as well as a pinch of science and history. He has hosted numerous series including “Cutthroat Kitchen,” “Camp Cutthroat” and “Iron Chef America,” as well as created, produced and hosted the Peabody award winning series “Good Eats” for 13 years on Food Network. Good Eats can still be seen on the Cooking Channel and Netflix.
