Join us at this benefit event for The Chase Brock Experience dance company, at the acclaimed Double Crown restaurant on Monday, June 21, 7pm. The evening's proceeds will support the creation of two premiere dances in CBE's summer season.
For this incredible evening, Double Crown restaurant's Chef de Cuisine, Christopher Rendell, joins forces with playwrights Theresa Rebeck (Pulitzer Finalist for Omnium GatherumMauritius), Rob Ackerman (the Drama Desk Award-winning Tabletop), and Tony® nominee Douglas Carter Beane (for XanaduThe Little Dog Laughed; screenwriter, To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar) to create an original three-course menu inspired by their world premiere plays. The evening stars Josh Charles (The Good Wife, In Treatment), Ann Harada (Avenue Q, 9 to 5), Jason Tam (A Chorus Line, Les Miserables) and Katie Kreisler (Noises Off, Our House). View Chef Rendell's delectable menu here.

Celebrating both the format of CBE's upcoming season, The Summer Edition: A Chase Brock Experience Double Feature (July 8-11 at The Connelly Theater), and Double Crown's philosophy of highlighting the culinary interplay between the British Empire and Southeast Asia, the theme for the evening is "Duality."  Eating Their Words Founder & Artistic Director, Marlo Hunter, directs.

The acclaimed Double Crown restaurant was named "Best return of fusion" in Time Out New York's 50 Best Bars and Restaurants 2009. Conceived by the AvroKO Hospitality Group and Executive Chef Brad Farmerie, creators of Nolita's PUBLIC & The Monday Room, the cuisine highlights the two-way street of culinary influence between Britannia and the East.  Chef Christopher Rendell followed a steady path Westward from his native Australia to the kitchen of New York's Double Crown, along the way working with some of the most esteemed names in the restaurant industry.  His full bio and more information on Double Crown can be found at

A New York City-based contemporary dance company, CBE has presented seasons at Joyce SoHo and Abrons Arts Center, among others.  Artistic Director Chase Brock's choreography has been praised in The New York Times for its "stylized showbiz mayhem", and in New York magazine for his ability to "mix a witty Broadway sensibility with rock-and-roll zest."  For more information on The Chase Brock Experience, visit
