Eat Your Science

Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science. the follow-up to the smash “Edible Inevitable” tour, hits the road again. Fans can expect all-new everything including songs, multimedia presentations, talk-show antics, and bigger and better potentially dangerous food demonstrations. Brown has a knack for mixing together a perfect base of science, music and food into two hours of pure entertainment. Critics and fans alike 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 while we’re at it. Plus, you’ll see things I’ve never been allowed to do on TV.” He’s also contemplating more sophisticated protective gear for folks in the first few rows…just in case things get messy…again.

ASBEE World Kosher BBQ Championship

In a city where treif BBQ restaurants far outnumber synagogues, it was only natural that a creative team at the oldest, Jewish Orthodox congregation in the Mid-South, Anshei Sphard-Beth El Emeth (ASBEE), decided twenty-seven years ago to offer a kosher alternative to the long-standing Memphis BBQ contest of the swine variety.

Rhythmic Circus's Red and Green

From the creators of Feet Don’t Fail Me Now!, Rhythmic Circus presents a brand new holiday experience, combining their signature style of rapid-fire tap with music you know and love. Red and Green is packed full with memorable, genre-hopping, holiday melodies to set the festive mood of the season by inspiring our imaginations to rediscover everything you love about the holiday season. Red and Green captures the spirit of the holiday with a wildly imaginative beatboxing rendition of “The Grinch,” a full-cast performance of “Linus and Lucy” (A Charlie Brown Christmas), five new originals, and a bright mash-up medley entitled "Toy Soldier March" where the dancers and musicians are adorned in colorful soldier attire, performing a syncopated percussive dance sequence at eye-popping speeds.
