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 $15, you get two adult tickets to the Salty Dinner Theater (up to a $30 value), with shows performed at various area restaurants. Seats are assigned when guests arrive to pick up their tickets. A dinner menu is available but is not included in the ticket price.
Salty Dinner Theater combines professional players and proficient chefs to create an edible production of theater classics, such as Wizard of Oz, held from May 27 to May 30 at Madeline’s Steakhouse in South Jordan, from June 3 to June 5 at The Old Spaghetti Factory in Orem, and on June 25 at Joe Morley’s Smoked Beef & Bar-B-Q in Midvale. Salty Dinner Theater’s rendition of L. Frank Baum’s stirring allegory of the Gilded Age unveils a twisted version of Oz that isn’t normally seen by audiences. During the play, unlikely friendships will be formed, a quest for a great wizard will be undertaken, and a lost girl will return home with a severe case of kleptomania. Gaggles of thespians interact with their audience attendees, beseeching their help to choose one of the alternate endings for the merry band of travelers. More performance dates will be announced, and today’s deal is valid for any show within the time frame mentioned in the expiration date.
Salty Dinner Theater
Salty Dinner Theater, which ABC 4 describes as “bringing a twist to traditional on-stage classics,” combines professional actors and proficient chefs to stage productions performed at area eateries. Audience members gobble supper as performers interact with them before and during the production. Regularly inhabiting Dry Creek Steakhouse, The Old Spaghetti Factory, Joe Morley’s Smoked Beef & Bar-B-Q, and Mimi’s Café, among other locales, the show-accompanying meals range from scratch-made baked lasagna with ground beef and pork to a pound of succulent smoked-beef brisket.
