Food Network Star Chef Robert Irvine is taking his brand of no nonsense cooking on the road in an all-new multi-media and multi-sensory theatrical experience coming to the Palace Theater in Waterbury, on Friday, Dec. 4 at 8 p.m. Tickets to the event are $48, $38, and $28 and can be purchased online at http://www.palacetheaterct.org, by phone at 203-346-2000, or in person at the Box Office, 100 East Main St.
This all-new, stage show features dynamic off-the-cuff cooking challenges, never-before-seen videos, interactive social media components, a Q & A segment, and a whole heaping of audience participation. Chef Irvine will have no prior knowledge of the culinary challenges he faces throughout the night, each of which will be chosen at random by audience members selected to spin the show’s digital challenge wheel. Once the challenge is issued, Irvine will bring more audience members onto the stage to help him complete the task at hand. In between each challenge, patrons will get a glimpse of rare videos that include interview footage of Robert retelling experiences from his military service, working for the royal family, his shows on Food Network, and his charity work. From start to finish, the production boasts that there are no recipes, no scripts and no holds barred.
Hardcore foodies and fans can upgrade their theater experience by purchasing a $158 VIP ticket package to the show, which includes access to a private cooking seminar, food tasting, and meet and greet opportunity with Chef Irvine before the show, as well as gold circle seating to the main event. Limited quantities are available for purchased online, in person and by phone at the Box Office.
