In 2012 this one-of-a-kind experience played to sold out houses and had the Chicago Tribune exclaiming “there’s nothing even remotely like it in Chicago!” Now the unforgettable theatrical adventure is back for a limited engagement at a completely new venue! Enjoy a sumptuous gourmet Mexican feast, world-class circus acts, exhilarating flamenco, hilarious comedy and a tantalizing love story starring celebrity chef Rick Bayless.
Cascabel is sensory dining unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. In this sensual tale of love and hunger, the audience will join the guests of the boardinghouse Cascabel at their courtyard table. From his meager kitchen, the mysterious new cook conjures an enchanting cuisine, which seems to give those who eat it fantastic and magical abilities. But he is singularly focused on the proprietress of the house, a melancholy woman with no interest in his food, who barely ever leaves her room. Will she ever try a bite? And what will happen if she does?
