Friends of the Center can buy tickets early starting on Tuesday, May 9.

Brown says fans can expect "all-new EVERYTHING including songs, new comedy, new puppets, and bigger and better potentially dangerous food demonstrations." Critics and fans have raved about the interactive components of Brown’s shows. He promises “plenty of new therapy-inducing opportunities during our audience participation segments. I don’t want to give too much away, but this time we’re going to play a little game.”

Brown has a knack for mixing together science, music and food into two hours of pure entertainment. "Plus, you’ll see things I’ve never been allowed to do on TV," he revealed.

Although Alton Brown is best known as the creator, writer and host of Good Eats, which ran for 14 years on Food network, he also hosted Cutthroat Kitchen and served as the culinary commentator on Iron Chef America. He’s written eight books on food and cooking (including his newest, EveryDayCook), and is currently touring the country with his second live culinary variety show, “Eat Your Science.”
