Ed Lee, Matt Lee and Ted Lee will present and perform “The Boiled Peanut Hour: A Live Cooking Show about Southern Identities” At Actors Theatre of Louisville this June.
At 6:30PM on Friday, June 19, 2015, and Saturday, June 20, 2015, Louisville Chef Edward Lee, of the restaurants 610 Magnolia and MilkWood, will team up with writers Matt Lee and Ted Lee, authors of three award-winning cookbooks about the South, to present a live cooking show in the Bingham Theatre—an intimate, 318-seat theatre-in-the-round inside Actors Theatre of Louisville.
“The Boiled Peanut Hour” is an hour-plus-long cooking, storytelling, and trash-talking show that sees the three Lees cooking favorite dishes from the southern canon that illuminate strongly-held beliefs about what it means to be a southerner. Bourbon tastings are included during the show, and afterward, a reception featuring a selection of the recipes from the show, prepared by MilkWood, will take place in the Sara Shallenberger Brown Lobby of the Theatre. The reception will offer an opportunity to meet the players and purchase autographed cookbooks.
Tickets are $45 and include the show, food and wine reception, and book-signing. Advance tickets at $40 are on sale until April 30. A limited number of VIP tickets are available, which include an after-show dinner and cocktails with the Lees. For all tickets, call Actors Theatre of Louisville, 502.584.1205, visit ActorsTheatre.org, or visit Actors Theatre’s box office in person at 316 West Main Street, Louisville, KY 40202.
