Celebrity Chef Rick Bayless Stars in Theatrical Feast CASCABEL, Opening Tonight at Lookingglass Theatre
Lookingglass Theatre, Frontera Grill and Silverguy Entertainment present the return of Rick Bayless in Cascabel: Dinner - Daring - Desire, the unforgettable theatrical adventure featuring a sumptuous feast, world-class circus acts, and a tantalizing love story starring celebrity chef Rick Bayless that had Chicago audiences spellbound when it premiered in spring 2012. The extremely limited engagement is co-created by Rick Bayless, Artistic Associate and founder of Silverguy Entertainment Tony Hernandez (Hephaestus, Lookingglass Alice), and Lookingglass Ensemble Member Heidi Stillman (Hephaestus, The Brothers Karamazov, Hard Times). The culinary and theatrical experience of the year runs at the Goodman Theatre's Owen Bruner Theatre, 170 N. Dearborn, for four weeks only, today, July 30, through August 24, 2014.
Last year this one-of-a-kind experience played to sold out houses and had the Chicago Tribune exclaiming, "there's nothing even remotely like it in Chicago!" Now the unforgettable theatrical adventure is back for a limited engagement with new menu elements at a new venue. Cascabel is sensory dining unlike anything you've ever experienced: it's a sumptuous gourmet Mexican feast, world-class circus acts, exhilarating flamenco, hilarious comedy and a tantalizing love story starring celebrity chef Rick Bayless.
