Ted’s at YoungArts (2100 Biscayne Blvd.) in Miami has made good on its summer promise to transition from an on-demand restaurant to an artistic space with special performances catered by Starr Events.
Over Halloween weekend YoungArts hosted the first installment of its new Pairings at Ted’s. The dinner-and-a-show series includes a three-course meal or optional small plates and drinks before live theater or music.
•A Broadway Thanksgiving, Nov. 27-28. Broadway favorites plus a Thanksgiving-themed menu.
•Jake Goldbas’ Holiday Bonanza, Dec. 18-19. YoungArts’ alum takes on holiday classics through jazz with an all-star cast of fellow alumni, including Benny Benack and Emmet Cohen, and special guests Kate Goldbas and Dion Kerr.
•Rudi Goblen’s PET, Feb. 26-27. An interactive, physical one-man theater piece set in a support group meeting for ex-lovers and serial monogamists.
•Nu Deco Ensemble, March 18-19. Nu Deco will incorporate the sounds of EDM accompanied by a live DJ.
•O, Miami, April 29-30. O, Miami will host an array of powerful spoken-word artists and poets alongside some of YoungArts’ noted literary-arts alums.
•Elena & Samora Pinderhughes, May 20-21. The Guardian calls Elena Pinderhughes, “The most exciting jazz flautist to have emerged in years.”
•’20 Feet from Stardom,’ June 24-25. Presented by award-winning filmmaker Doug Blush.
The prix-fixe dinner package includes show admission and a three-course meal for $95, plus beverages, tax and tip. Dinner begins at 7 p.m.
