West Egg Entertainmen presents Chef's Theater, a new culinary entertainment experience that combines a meal prepared on stage by a celebrity chef with Broadway entertainment. It stars the best chefs from the most popular restaurants in New York and around the world cooking on stage and Broadway performers singing new songs. The songs are by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, Andrew Lippa, and Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich. Stafford Arima directs.
Each evening, the bar will open at 6:30PM. The performance gets underway at 7:30PM with a 3-course meal featuring a star chef demonstrating their process and personal approach to cuisine while cooking a meal for the audience. Giant video monitors will offer close-ups of the preparation. The evening is framed with original songs by Broadway composers about the fun of dining and drinking.
Every week will feature a new chef and a new menu.
