Mesa Arts Center is thrilled to announce â€œAlton Brown Live: Beyond The Eatsâ€ 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 Centerâ€™s theaters have been closed to the public since March 2020 but are anticipated to open in fall 2021.
Television personality, author and Food Network star Alton Brown has announced â€œAlton Brown Live â€“ Beyond The Eatsâ€ will visit Mesa Arts Center on Thursday, November 11, 2021. Brown created a new form of entertainment â€“ the live culinary variety show â€“ with his â€œEdible Inevitable Tourâ€ and â€œEat Your Science,â€ which played in over 200 cities with more than 350,000 fans in attendance. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 5 at noon.
Get tickets at MesaArtsCenter.com or call 480-644-6500 during box office business hours.
Brown says fans can expect â€œmore cooking, more comedy, more music and more potentially dangerous science stuff.â€ Critics and fans have raved about the interactive components of Brownâ€™s shows. He warns, â€œ[p]repare for an evening unlike any other and if I call for volunteersâ€¦ think twice.â€
Brown has a knack for mixing together science, music and food into two hours of pure entertainment. â€œPlus, youâ€™ll see things Iâ€™ve never been allowed to do on TV.â€
Alton Brown has been on the Food Network for over 20 years and is best known as the creator, writer and host of Good Eats, Good Eats: Reloaded, and Good Eats: The Return. He also hosted Cutthroat Kitchen and served as the culinary commentator on Iron Chef America. There are two James Beard awards with Brownâ€™s name on them in a drawer in his office, and somewhere in the world thereâ€™s a coveted Peabody awarded for Good Eats that was stolen out of his car back in 2013. In his spare time, heâ€™s working on his ninth book on food and cooking.
