Two of the culinary world’s famously outspoken gastronomes serve up an insightful night for foodies during “Good vs. Evil: An Evening with Anthony Bourdain & Eric Ripert.” The lovably abrasive Bourdain, who's as verbose and cutting as a serrated thesaurus, has won over food enthusiasts with his best-selling book Medium Raw and his opined explorations of the culinary landscape chronicled in the Travel Channel’s No Reservations. In a playful cross-examination, the curt connoisseur squares off in a frank discussion of kitchen philosophies with Emmy Award– and James Beard Award–winning chef Ripert. Throughout his career, Ripert steadily has climbed the culinary ladder, leading him to opportunities to co-own three-star Michelin restaurant Le Bernardin, host PBS’ Avec Eric, and appear as a judge on Bravo's Top Chef. Equally as charming and acidic as his Jersey-bred contemporary, Ripert makes the perfect friend and foe to Bourdain as the two masters share ribbing banter, followed by a question-and-answer session and a toilet-papering of an Olive Garden.
Since 1993, Cirque Dreams' family-friendly variety extravaganzas have called upon a cast of acrobats, strongmen, and daredevils to wring the oohs and aahs out of audiences with tremendous feats of derring-do. During each themed production, more than 100 performers garbed in dazzling outfits twirl high in the air, contort their bodies into impossible shapes, and solve long division problems to earn uproarious applause from the crowd. At Dream Studios in Pompano Beach, Florida, hundreds of contracted artists from around the world develop their skills and prep for Cirque Dreams performances under the direction of Neil Goldberg and his team of choreographers, contortionists, and designers.
