When The Caro Savanti Experience premiered back in 2013, everyone agreed that it was simply hilarious. Its sold-out run at the BeBe Theatre was met with praise from all sides. Now, this tale of an insane celebrity chef who opens a restaurant and tapes a reality show in Asheville is back at Magnetic 375. It runs for two more weekends, Thursdays-Saturdays at 7:30 pm.
Written by Fringe Fest co-director Jim Julien, directed by Elliot Weiner, and starring the brilliant Darren Marshall in the title role, it's a maniacal romp through the Asheville restaurant scene and a send-up of celebrity--and foodie--culture. Asheville Citizen-Times writer and critic Tony Kiss praised the show as "pure comic insanity." It's returning to an Asheville that is, impossibly, even more obsessed with its food than a couple of years ago.
