As a change of pace today Goldstar has discount tickets to see Kitchen Confidential‘s Anthony Bourdain live at the Auditorium Theatre, Chicago.

King of foodies Anthony Bourdain has eaten a whole cobra in Vietnam and sheep testicles in Morocco. As the host of the Emmy- and Peabody-winning TV shows Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown and Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, Bourdain has made a name for himself traveling the world and trying the most exotic local cuisine he can find. Notorious for his passion and caustic sense of humor, Bourdain is ruthless about the things he hates and is an enthusiastic champion for the things he loves. He’s also the best-selling author of Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, a gourmet chef, lecturer, and helped write HBO’s Treme. Now he comes to Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre with his live show Close to the Bone, and you’ll have the chance to ask the king of foodies questions while he shares fascinating stories from his life.

Goldstar just added new discount ticket dates for Ring of Fire: The Music of Johnny Cash. I think this would be a fun show, don’t you?

This foot-stompin’, crowd-pleasin’ country jukebox musical celebrates the songs of a true American original — the Man in Black himself, Johnny Cash. Ring of Fire is a song-fueled journey through the music of one of the country’s most iconic singer-songwriters. Created by Tony Award winner Richard Maltby Jr. (Ain’t Misbehavin’, Fosse), the musical explores Cash’s faith, success, struggles and famous romance with fellow performer June Carter Cash through songs like “I Walk the Line,” “Folsom Prison Blues” and, of course, “Ring of Fire.” This Broadway musical revue cracks Cash’s hit-filled songbook wide open, and brings the Man in Black’s music, wit and raw power to life on the Mercury Theater Chicago stage.

Goldstar just added tickets for the final four performances of the Lyric Opera doing Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel! Last chance — get your discount Carousel tickets now if you were planning to attend this Broadway classic at the Civic Opera House in Chicago.

The Good Wife’s Steven Pasquale and Tony nominee Laura Osnes (Cinderella) star in the new Lyric Opera production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel, which Time magazine called the best musical of the century. Charming carnival barker Billy and naive millworker Julie meet and fall in love. But when Billy is coerced into taking part in a robbery and is caught, he takes his own life. Fifteen years later, he’s sent down to earth for one day to set things right with his wife and the daughter he never knew. With signature tunes like “If I Loved You,” “June Is Bustin’ Out All Over” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” it’s easy to see why this powerful love story was Rodgers and Hammerstein’s personal favorite. Catch this Broadway classic at the Civic Opera House in Chicago.
