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 see Frankenstein, presented by the Salty Dinner Theater at various area restaurants from October 14 to October 31 on Fridays, Saturdays, and Mondays, with one Thursday show on October 27 (up to a $30 value). All shows start at 7 p.m., and 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 Frankenstein, held at Madeline’s Steakhouse in South Jordan (October 14, 24, and 29), The Old Spaghetti Factory in Orem (October 15, 21, 27, and 31), and Joe Morley’s Smoked Beef & Bar-B-Q in Midvale (October 17, 22, and 28). Salty Dinner Theater’s rendition of Mary Shelley’s modern Prometheus chronicles Dr. Frankenstein as he bears witness to the horrific hijinks of his monstrous creation and ponders the alternative fuel prospects of lightning rods. Gaggles of thespians interact with their audience attendees, beseeching their help to choose one of the alternative 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.
Although the Salty Dinner Theater offers discounted children’s tickets, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
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.
