Art and food have been intrinsically connected since the first avant-garde artist crafted a Starry Night interpretation out of egg yolks and blueberry yogurt. Celebrate the cohabitation of craft and cuisine with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get a theater package for two at Salty Dinner Theater (up to a $175 value), which includes:
- Tickets for two to each of the 2012 season’s productions and to the 2013 Valentine’s Day show (a $150 value)
- A souvenir T-shirt (a $25 value) or saltshaker (a $10 value)
Salty Dinner Theater, which ABC 4 News describes as “bringing a twist to traditional on-stage classics,” combines professional players and proficient chefs to create edible productions performed at Madeline’s Steakhouse & Grill in South Jordan, The Old Spaghetti Factory in Orem, and Joe Morley’s Smoked Beef & Bar-B-Q in Midvale. Seats are assigned when guests arrive to pick up their tickets, and a dinner menu is available at each venue (although not covered by this deal). Pairs gobble supper as gaggles of thespians interact with attendees, sometimes beseeching their help to choose alternative endings so that fairy tales end happily ever before. To commemorate an entertaining evening, visitors can bring home their choice of souvenir T-shirt or saltshaker.
Duos kick off their dramatic adventures with February’s exploration of medieval trigonometry, King Arthur and Lancelot . . . For the Love of Guinevere. During the summer, the theater lives up to its saline title with The Pirates of Penzance, and Halloween brings a production of Dracula. Coming full circle, next winter’s new rendition of A Christmas Carol spins Dickens around again, proving the author’s immunity to dizziness and the play’s infinite possibilities. For the finale to the series of plays, ticket-holders can also attend 2013’s Valentine’s Day show. Although playgoers must make reservations, this deal covers any performance at any of the venues. Check online for a full list of show times and corresponding venues.
Although the Salty Dinner Theater offers discounted children’s tickets, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
