You might not get the plot, but you’ll get a fabulous dinner—along with a hoot n’ hollerin’ good time at On Site Opera’s current production of Das Barbecü at Hill Country Barbecue Restaurant. Book writer and lyricist Jim Luigs and composer Scott Warrender’s spoof on Wagner’s Ring Cycle and Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings has been kickin’ around for nearly 30 years. It first premiered in 1991 at Seattle Opera. That was followed by out of town runs at Goodspeed Opera and Baltimore’s Center Stage Theater. Eventually, it blew into town and took up residency Off-Broadway the Minetta Lane Theater.

She first nudged us into the beauty of silence with Small Mouth Sounds.  After that, she gave the eighties generation an introspective look into our childhood with Make Believe. Now, she’s gifted us with a poignant comedic drama in her Broadway debut, Grand Horizons, presented by Second Stage Theater.

‘A Soldier’s Play’ Offers Big Stars in a Lukewarm Revival

It was later turned into a critically acclaimed film with original stage star Denzel Washington.
