ATC’s Tucson home is a fitting showcase for the top-quality theatre that happens inside. The Temple of Music and Art, located in historic downtown Tucson, is a refurbished 1927 theatre, built in the Spanish Colonial style that flavors so much of our city. Its graceful courtyard is a wonderful place to gather before or after the show. Inside, the intimate 627-seat theatre ensures a great view from every location – no seat is more than 66 feet from the stage.

Arizona Theatre Company and Chef Janos Wilder are thrilled to announce a new collaboration that pairs Arizona’s preeminent producer of world-class theatrical productions with one of Tucson’s most acclaimed and beloved chefs and restaurateurs. Janos at the Temple premieres in tandem with the opening of ATC’s 2018/2019 season and will offer a unique dining experience tailored to complement each of Arizona Theatre Company’s productions at the Temple of Music and Art.
Janos at the Temple will be open starting 90 minutes before every matinee and evening ATC performance creating lunch and dinner buffets that tease culinary themes from the plot lines of each play. The menus will be tasty, quick and price conscious at $14.50 for the lunch buffet and $24.50 for the the dinner buffet. The buffets at lunch and dinner will be complete meals offering a variety of salads, starches, main dishes and desserts while providing a whimsical glimpse at the performance ahead.
Janos at the Temple: A Garden BBQ, begins with this year’s opening comedy, NATIVE GARDENS, that pits two couples with their generational and cultural differences against one another. Prior to the performance, you’ll find aristocratic food themes with English garden elements sharing a table with south of the border fiesta fare. Like the two couples in this lively play, there is room for each at the table we’ll be setting for you.

Janos Wilder’s culinary flare, artistry, execution and good taste that has become his signature at DOWNTOWN KITCHEN AND COCKTAIL and THE CARRIAGE HOUSE, and the virtuosic theatrical talent and creativity displayed by Arizona Theatre Company productions, including last season’s sell-out performances of OUTSIDE MULLINGAR and MAN OF LA MANCHA, are a perfect match to give patrons an unforgettable experience for all the senses.
“Joining forces with Janos is not only thrilling but it reinforces our engagement with community while deepening our legacy as we celebrate not only theatre arts, but culinary arts as well. We are delighted to make space for our esteemed colleague….Bring extra napkins!” – David Ivers, Artistic Director
“We are proud to continue our long relationship with Arizona Theatre Company by bringing Janos at the Temple to the Temple of Music and Art before every performance this year. David Ivers has put together a delectable run of plays this season. We hope our menus will spark some chords or curiosity and a bit of whimsy about the plays you will see following your meals at Janos at the Temple” – Janos Wilder
