If you attend a Quantum Theatre performance of “Chatterton,” you won’t just watch the show. You’ll be immersed in it. You will, literally, have it for dinner.
Happening Sept. 14 through Oct. 28 in conjunction with the Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts, each performance starts with pre-show drinks in the city’s oldest churchyard. There is also a full intermission dinner prepared by a rotating cast of local chefs, including Bob Sendall, Bill Fuller, Kate Romane, Jennifer Gerasole, Derek Stevens and Dennis Marron.
The meals consist of a cold first course, followed by a family-style entree (including a vegetarian option), wine and dessert. There won’t be a set culinary theme, allowing individual chefs to showcase their creativity.
“I am particularly excited for this opportunity because I just love the idea of incorporating a meal into this performance, and the fact that it is in one of the most beautiful buildings in Pittsburgh will create such an incredible experience combining food and art,” says Stevens of Union Standard.
