Most new authors have heard it’s important to connect with potential colleagues, but how exactly do you get the time of day from a pro when you’re just starting out?

Ire and José Pablo Iriarte will show you how to approach and interact with industry pros on Twitter, via fan-mail/email and in-person, and share do’s and don’ts for each situation.

Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science is the follow-up to the smash Edible Inevitable tour. Fans can expect all-new everything including songs, multimedia presentations, talk-show antics, and bigger-and-better, potentially dangerous, food demonstrations.

Brown has a knack for mixing together a perfect base of science, music and food into two hours of pure entertainment. Critics and fans alike have raved about the interactive components of Brown’s shows. He promises “plenty of new therapy inducing opportunities during our audience participation segments. I don’t want to give too much away, but this time we’re going to play a little game while we’re at it. Plus, you’ll see things I’ve never been allowed to do on TV.” He’s also contemplating more sophisticated protective gear for folks in the first few rows…just in case things get messy…again.

SOMETHING ROTTEN! is “Broadway’s big, fat hit!” (New York Post). Set in 1595, this hilarious smash tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two brothers who are desperate to write a hit play. When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first MUSICAL! With its heart on its ruffled sleeve and sequins in its soul, SOMETHING ROTTEN! is “The Producers + The Book of Mormon x The Drowsy Chaperone. Squared!” (New York Magazine).

The Thursday, March 9, performance will be sign language interpreted.

Stay tuned for on-sale information!
