Red Bank Flavour, a culinary campaign driven by the borough’s top chefs, restaurateurs and proprietors, announced its partnership with Two River Theater to present Broadway in Red Bank on Monday, April 16. The event will take place at the Two River Theater and include a palatable selection of cuisine from Red Bank’s hottest restaurants and a must-see cabaret performance featuring Broadway’s rising stars. Tickets ranging in price from $75-$200 are on sale now from www.trtc.org.
Starting at 6 p.m., foodies and theater fans will enjoy a 90-minute culinary extravaganza presented by more than a dozen select Red Bank restaurants. Following the flavourful food tasting, audience members will enjoy a special musical cabaret in Rechnitz Theater featuring performances from Katie Boren (Lysistrata Jones), Miguel Cervantes (American Idiot), Jeff Kready (currently in Two River’s new musical In This House, Billy Elliott), and Kenita R. Miller (Two River’s Honk!, The Color Purple).
“Broadway in Red Bank marks an important collaboration between Red Bank Flavour and the town’s theaters, merging the arts and culinary communities to raise awareness of Red Bank as a thriving entertainment and cultural destination,” commented Chris Paseka, owner of Red Bank’s Sugarush a Sweet Experience. “We are very excited to be working with Two River Theater to produce this event and hope it is the first of many partnerships.”
