Last season he was the man behind the immersive Sweeney Todd's custom-made pies; now, former White House pastry chef Bill Yosses is curating a four-course meal and cocktails to accompany the Broadway premiere of Network. The culinary experience, dubbed Foodwork, is an exclusive immersive onstage dining experience at the Belasco Theatre.
Foodwork ticket buyers will be escorted into a private entrance of the theatre and will have the opportunity to explore the stage as the actors prepare around them. They will enjoy dinner and drinks throughout the evening, with the play’s action surrounding them onstage. Click here to view the menu.
Network is scheduled to begin previews November 10, prior to an official opening December 6. Directed by Tony and Olivier Award winner Ivo van Hove, the play is adapted by Tony and Olivier winner Lee Hall, based on the Oscar-winning film of the same name by Paddy Chayefsky.
The story follows anchorman Howard Beale, played by Bryan Cranston, who struggles to pull in viewers. When he unravels live on screen in his final broadcast, the ratings soar, and the network seizes on its newfound populist prophet.
Network is produced on Broadway by David Binder, the National Theatre, Patrick Myles, David Luff, Ros Povey, and Lee Menzies.
