Noodles & Company, known for serving classic noodle, Zoodle and Caulifloodle dishes from around the world, announced a partnership with the acclaimed People's Improv Theater in New York City and the iO Theater in Chicago to bring the joy and spontaneity of live events directly to guests' homes via live-streamed interactive improv shows inspired by the endless possibilities of Noodles' signature dish: Wisconsin Mac & Cheese.
Opening the door to a world of 'Mac & Cheese & Yes &,' Noodles is hiring comedians from the two theaters to showcase their talent in five virtual 15-minute performances streamed via Facebook Live from Monday, August 17 to Friday, August 21 (each show will be made available at Noodles.com following the live performances). Starting with a prompt inspired by Noodles' Wisconsin Mac & Cheese and the infinite customizations and possibilities it brings, the live improv shows will take on a life of their own with the help of audience input and the performers' boundless creativity.
"We want to deliver the live entertainment that our guests are craving right now, and what better way to do so than through an interactive event, connecting people virtually through the power of laughter?" said Stacey Pool, chief marketing officer of Noodles & Company. "With more than 2.7 million ways to customize your Noodles mac, the possibilities are truly endless, and we can't wait to see how these clever performers are inspired by the very dish that excites our own individuality and creativity here at Noodles."
In addition to providing a bit of comic relief, Noodles & Company is continuing the cheesy fun with a sweepstakes offer for five lucky guests to win big.
