The Monday April 30th Dinner Party is around the corner and I am excited to host another great guest line-up, including Saturday Night Live alum, Nora Dunn, Project Runway's Peach Carr, Chicago Human Rhythm Project's Lane Alexander and the wonderful Executive Chef, Paul Kahan, presenting food tastings for the audience from his new restaurant Publican Quality Meats. The set will be donned with paintings by Michael O'Briant and the Thomas Masters Gallery and Fashion illustrator Rosemary Fanti will be documenting the evening, which includes tastings from Vosges Chocolate, as well from Publican Quality Meats.
Doors open for the April 30th Dinner Party at the Mayne Stage at 6:30 p.m. with a start time of 7 p.m., featuring the dance troupe, BAM, as an opening act. Tickets are available from the Mayne Stage with no service fee. Tickets sold out to the March Dinner Party. Just in case you can't make it to the Mayne Stage, the show is also broadcast live here.
Remember audience members and viewers can tweet in questions for the artists to be a part of this interactive, multi-sensory event. If your tweet is picked on stage, you can win theater tickets, dance tickets, t-shirts and cookbooks.
