Alton Brown, the Food Network star, is returning to Fresno in 2017.
The Broadway in Fresno series on Monday announced that the national tour of “Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science” added 40 cities, including Fresno, to the tour lineup. Brown’s live show will come to Saroyan Theatre on March 20. Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 11.
Brown brought his show “Alton Brown Live! The Edible Inevitable Tour” to the Saroyan last year. He must like Fresno – and vice versa.
A description of his new show:
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.”
He will make his Broadway debut during Thanksgiving Week for eight performances at Barrymore Theatre.
Tickets are $45-$65 and will be available at Ticketmaster.com, 800-745- 3000 and at the Fresno Convention Center box office.
