Act I

Has this new "show" made its way to your neighborhood yet? Anthony Bourdain, legendary restaurant meanie and local Chef Eric Ripert are taking to the STAGE--yes, you read that right--for an hour and half to dish about all things culinary. Would you buy a ticket to see to chefs talk about food?

Apparently lots of people have. "Chefs have been elevated to celebrity as they've become, in many ways, the new artists of our moment," says Bryant Simon, a Temple University history professor."But this is where celebrity and art collide. We consume their personalities more than their art. More people know them from TV than the tastes they create, because so few of us can afford it."

Maybe we should take our chefs on the road and just let them play with their dogs! On stage.
