Show time for Mysteries of the Unexplained: Bacon is 9:30 PM. The evening is part of a new Daisey series that will "explore trivial elements of our modern world, in the belief that the things we honestly think about most of the time deserve time in the spotlight." Daisey, according to press notes, will offer a "one-night orgy of all things bacon: from sizzling fat to swine flu, from baco-bits to Hasids to 'Charlotte's Web.' In one delicious hour we'll explore bacon in all its filthy, gorgeous deliciousness."
Note: Bacon will be cooked and served by Daisey during the performance.
