Five Fabulous Questions

Published by Megan at 3:39 PM under Five Fabulous Questions

We would like to introude you to our Fall Marketing Intern, Chrisnelle Young, The Florida native has spent over 14 years in the restaurant industry and has decided to pursue her passions and switch careers.  She is currently a student at STLCC Meramec studying Communications /Theatre. In her spare time, she loves being with her family trying out new restaurants, traveling to new places, exploring, and watching shows. They are a creative family! She also work on her blog, Joie’s Appetite, and helps build up The Founding Moms St. Louis Exchange, which is a great group for mom entrepreneurs. We caught up with Chrisnelle and asker her our five fabulous questions.

What are you most excited about becoming a Fox marketing intern?

I love theatre arts & music; it has always been a passion of mine.  So having this opportunity presented to me, and being associated with The Fabulous Fox is exciting enough!  I just want to soak in the experience, and learn about all the hard work it takes to promote a show. There is definitely a lot of hard work that goes on. 

What was the first Broadway show you ever saw?

1997, Broadway tour of Miss Saigon in Los Angeles, CA.  It was so good!  The first show I ever saw ON Broadway in New York City was Les Miserables.  Interesting fact, the actor who played Chris in the production of Miss Saigon played the part of Marius in Les Mis!  

What would your personal backstage mural look like?

It would probably have my signature with some drawings of turquoise flowers and birds. Maybe have my kids come in and draw a few things too!

If you could see any performance at the Fox, (any artist alive or dead; any show past or present) what would you choose?

This is a tough one!  There are so many good shows out there, and many fabulous artists.  I’m going to give you my top artist and show.  As far as artists go, I’m going to have to go with The King of Pop, Michael Jackson.  He would have been amazing to see.  For shows…The Lion King currently tops my list.

What do you think is the most Fabulous thing about St. Louis?

Besides The Fabulous Fox?! There are too many things about St. Louis that I love.  St Louis is a great place for families.  Also, the food scene here is terrific.

Published by Emilee at 10:00 AM under

This fall, join us for an evening of Ghost Tours and explore, for the first time, the untold history of the many ghost sightings and unexplained occurrences reported at the Fabulous Fox during its 85-year history. Many St. Louisans have often wondered if any ghostly spirits roam the halls of the Fabulous Fox. After the shows have closed and the stage lights go dim, the Fabulous Fox is far from quiet. Over the past eight decades, there have been rumors of mysterious phenomenon and spooky sightings, but these tales have never been told until now.

Guided tours will be offered at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 16. Tickets are on sale now and include a one-hour guided tour of the Fabulous Fox and parking. All tickets are available without a service charge, regardless of purchase method. 

In addition to the guided tours, other activities and attractions will be available to guests from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Specialty cocktails and snacks will be sold at lobby concession stands. Readings from independent psychics and tarot card readers will be available throughout the evening at an additional cost. Paranormal author Steven LaChance and members of the St. Louis Paranormal Research Society will be present to answer questions before and after tours.

The St. Louis Paranormal Research Society will be offering two séances; one at 7:30 p.m. and one at 9:30 p.m. Those interested will be able to sign up the evening of the tour for a $20 fee, payable to The St. Louis Paranormal Research Society.

Recipe: Pineapple Upside-Down Carrot Cake

Published by Emilee at 9:21 AM under

Looking for a fabulous dessert? Stephen Proctor, the Fabulous Fox Theatre's Chef, has paired two classic favorites - pineapple upside-down cake and carrot cake - for a match made in heaven. Enjoy!

Pineapple Upside-Down Carrot Cake

Yield: three 9” cakes

For the Cake:

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup butter, unsalted, room temperature
  • 4 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups raw carrot, peeled and coarsely grated
  • 4 ounces chopped walnuts
  • 1-1/2 cups brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 pineapple, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1-1/3 cups butter, unsalted, melted

For the Frosting:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup butter, unsalted, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ lb powdered sugar
  • ½ cup honey, clover or prairie flower
  • 1 tablespoon walnut oil
  • Combine all ingredients in mixer, whip until light, fluffy and homogenous

Preheat oven to 300

Cream together the granulated sugar, vegetable oil and ½ cups softened butter. Add eggs, one at a time, incorporating well after each addition.

Sift together flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Fold into wet ingredients.

Fold the carrots and walnuts into the batter.

In the bottom of three greased 9” cake pans, place ½ cup brown sugar, and 1/3 cup melted butter, making sure to cover the bottom of the pan evenly. Divide the diced pineapple evenly among the three pans. Carefully divide the batter into the pans on top of the brown sugar/butter/pineapple. Do not mix!! After batter has been divided, spread it evenly on top.

Place in 300° oven for 50 minutes or until a toothpick come out just clean in center.

Let cool slightly and then invert onto plate.

Serve as is, with powdered sugar or cream cheese icing.

We serve it with cream cheese icing, with the addition of honey and walnut oil.

Baking variations- use large muffin tins or mini loaf pans instead of cake pans. The cooking time decreases with the size of the pan used.

You can also cut the pineapple into rings, or use canned pineapple. Make sure to drain the pineapple very well before use.
