Performance Options


Some of television’s most celebrated chefs descend on Count Basie Theatre for a weekend of edifying eats. On Friday evening, the Food Network’s Anne Burrell shows off the attitude and ingenuity she displayed on Chef Wanted, Worst Cooks in America, and Iron Chef America. This event takes the form of an interactive cooking demo, in which the spikily coiffed cuisinier reveals a few of her favorite recipes and some convenient kitchen shortcuts. Audience members may also get a chance to sample the edible stars of the show.

After Saturday’s day-long competition in the tasting tent, the top-performing local chefs take the stage for a delicious duel with Victor Rallo of PBS’s Eat! Drink! Italy!—all under the gaze of MasterChef judge Joe Bastianich. The owner of Basil T’s Brewery and Italian Grill in Red Bank, Rallo is also the author of Napoleon Wasn’t Exiled, 21 Wines, and countless grocery lists. Bastianich, meanwhile, practices what he preaches at a slew of four-star New York City restaurants—including Eataly—and three Italian vineyards.<p>

Count Basie Theatre

Upon entering the Count Basie Theatre, guests may feel as though they’ve slipped through a crack in time and ended up in the early 1900s. Opulent marble staircases and gold details grab the eyes of visitors, recalling the decadence of Hollywood’s history and gently pulling them to the auditorium. There, the acoustically pleasing construction wins out as sound spreads and funnels through a sunburst dome embellished with a dangling chandelier. Since opening in 1926, the Count Basie has earned numerous accolades, including a nod from Pollstar magazine, which listed it as one of the Top 100 Worldwide Theatre Venues.
