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 this Groupon: for $15, you get two tickets to the Salty Dinner Theater production of Pirates! Of Penzance? (up to a $30 value). Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. at the following dates and locations:
- Madeline’s Steakhouse & Grill in Sandy on Friday, June 1; Thursday, June 7; and Saturday, June 16
- The Old Spaghetti Factory in Orem on Saturday, June 2, and Friday, June 8
- Joe Morley’s Smoked Beef & Bar-B-Q in Midvale on Monday, June 4; Saturday, June 9; and Friday, June 15
Salty Dinner Theater, which ABC 4 describes as “bringing a twist to traditional on-stage classics,” combines professional players and proficient chefs to create edible productions performed at three area eateries. Pirates! Of Penzance?, a spirited riff on Gilbert and Sullivan's age-old musical, spins the gut-busting yarn of Frederic and Mabel, a pair of young lovers whose courtship must survive his pirate apprenticeship, which will last 63 years since he was born on a leap year. 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 performers interact with attendees before and during the production. Although playgoers must make reservations, this deal covers any performance at any of the venues or in the director's backyard puppet theater.
Although the Salty Dinner Theater offers discounted children’s tickets, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
