Plan ahead, because tickets are now on sale as Hennepin Theater Trust intends to bring Alton Brown Live: Beyond the Eats to the State Theatre in Minneapolis on Wednesday, October 13, for a delicious, exciting, real live show.

Brown, perhaps best known as host of Iron Chef America and Cutthroat Kitchen, exhibits culinary entertainment that goes beyond cooking—featuring comedy, music, and potentially dangerous science, including calls for brave volunteers. Tickets range from $49 to $89, plus a limited number of $179 VIP tickets that include access to the best seats in the State Theatre and an invitation to attend Brown’s sound check, followed by a Q&A session.
