Arizona Theatre Company, Janos Wilder team up for “Janos at the Temple”

Cure your appetite before indulging in local performances by the Arizona Theatre Company

It’s both a show on the stage and on your plate as Arizona Theatre Company teams up with chef Janos Wilder at the Temple of Music and Art from Saturday, September 8 – Saturday, September 29.

The exclusive collaboration pairs one of the city’s most acclaimed chefs with Arizona Theatre Company’s season-opening of Native Gardens.

An hour and a half before each matinee and evening show, the owner and chef of Downtown Kitchen + Cocktail and The Carriage House will be preparing a lunch or dinner buffet that complements the production.

The buffet will be teasing the culinary themes from the production’s plot featuring salads, main dishes, and desserts in a south-of-the-border style.

Tickets to the buffet and performance are sold separately. Depending on the time of the performance, the lunch buffet is $14.50 per person, and the dinner buffet is $24.50.

Tickets to the Native Gardens performance start at $25 per person and can be purchased at
