Presented by Mesa Arts Center
Mesa Arts Center is thrilled to announce “Alton Brown Live: Beyond The Eats” as the first on sale for our 2021-22 season! Mesa Arts Center will announce the full Performing Live season later this spring/summer. Mesa Arts Center’s theaters have been closed to the public since March 2020 but are anticipated to reopen in fall 2021.
Alton Brown is hitting the road with a new culinary variety show. Audiences can expect more cooking, more comedy, more music and more potentially dangerous science stuff. Prepare for an evening unlike any other and if Brown calls for volunteers… think twice.
Alton Brown has been on the Food Network for nearly 20 years and is best known as the creator, writer and host of Good Eats, which ran for 14 years on Food Network. He also hosted Cutthroat Kitchen and served as the culinary commentator on Iron Chef America. He’s written eight books on food and cooking (including his newest, EveryDayCook). There are two James Beard awards with Brown’s name on them in a drawer in his office, and somewhere in the world there’s a coveted Peabody awarded to Good Eats that was stolen out of his car back in 2013.
Mesa Arts Center’s Theaters will reopen informed by CDC guidelines, state health department guidelines, and best practices. Masks will be required of all visitors age six (6) and older. Hand sanitizer stations will be readily available, and extra cleanings of high-touch areas will occur throughout the event.
