Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science

November 22-27, 2016

America's favorite mad scientist is back with a brand-new touring show, following up his previous smash Edible Inevitable, on a two-hour journey that comprises music, food and science! A truly interactive show (people in the front rows may be given protective wear!), Brown's shows feature presentations, songs and explosive food experiments to provide a truly enjoyable learning experience. And remember, it's not an Alton Brown show without audience participation!

The Present

December 17, 2016-March 19, 2017

Cate Blanchett (Carol, Blue Jasmine) leads the cast of this lively Chekhov adaptation, playing a widow whose 40th birthday party descends into chaos as long held regrets and jealousies are revealed. Part farce and part tragedy, The Present examines the disjunct between the life that we live and the one that we dreamed of.

The only surviving theatre of the many that Herbert J. Krapp and J.J. Shubert designed and built for specific performers, this venue was named after the eminent actress of the day, who was the cream of both New York and London acting society, with a great deal owed to her dynastic heritage. In fact, Barrymore herself performed in the first productions at this, her very own theatre. Following a $9 million renovation in 2004, the theatre broke its box office records in 2012 for its sell-out run of Death of a Salesman, grossing over $1 million over just seven performances.
