A Recipe For Disaster!

Show Information

It’s influencer night at The Contumacious Pig, one of the city’s hottest restaurants, and with folks like @VeganChic in attendance, it’s bound to be an exciting evening. There’s only one problem: the head Chef just called in sick and the Sous Chef might have taken the wrong pill to calm his nerves. The health inspector showed up unannounced, there’s possibly a spy from CP’s biggest competition in tow, and oh yeah, the busboy is hiding a wild pig. In the meantime, the GM is trying to hold it all together while keeping customers from tweeting negative reviews. Can this team of misfits join together to offer up a great dining experience, or will they end up (literally) with egg on their face?

Conceived by Rick Bayless and Windy City Playhouse’s artistic team, A RECIPE FOR DISASTER is a live experience that combines immersive theater, food, and farce. Guests are invited inside the restaurant to join us for “influencer night.” The actors will not touch or talk to audience directly, allowing you to feel like a “fly on the wall” as the hilarity unfolds around you. Admission also includes six bite-sized tastings by Chef Rick Bayless, one cocktail sampling from Lanie Bayless, and two wine pairings.

This experience will take place at Petterino’s, located in the heart of the Chicago theater district at 150 N Dearborn. The entrance to Windy City Playhouse’s space is just around the corner on Randolph Street.

As of October 22, 2021, the Windy City Playhouse’s mask and vaccination policy is as follows. All guests will be asked for proof of vaccination at the door. Vaccination must have occurred at least 14 days prior to the performance. Our hope is not to have to require masks, but we will follow whatever is mandated by the City or State government at the time of the performance. Alternatively, guests may show a negative COVID-19 PCR test from the past 48 hours. Those guests who are not vaccinated will additionally be asked to wear a mask when not actively eating or drinking. If you are not comfortable holding onto tickets for your performance date, you may be issued a credit upon request, and you may opt to reschedule for another showtime. At this time, we cannot offer any refunds. This COVID-19 Safety policy is subject to change.
