Last night was BBQ and Broadway in Berwyn. Okay… slightly off-Broadway, but a Broadway show with as much heart as you’ll ever see.
We were at the Footlighter’s Theatre in Berwyn, PA. It is a Community Theatre now in its 81st season. 81 years of entertainment. That, in itself, is impressive.
The show was Gypsy, based on the memoirs of stripper Gypsy Rose Lee. (Just to show ya how old I am, I actually remember the Gypsy Rose Lee Show on TV.) Ah… the good ol’ days.
It was a great performance by some really fun and talented folks. There’s something extremely fulfilling about seeing local community theatre. Footlighters probably only seats 150 people. There just isn’t more intimate theatre out there.
Let Me Entertain You, indeed!
If you’re in the neighborhood of Berwyn, PA, the show is running through May 1st and tickets are only $15.00. Less than a movie and a lot more entertaining!
For sustenance before the show, we grilled chicken. Bone-in breasts with the Strawberry BBQ Sauce I made a while back. Mashed yellow sweet potatoes and broccoli.
And seeded rolls.
I used the no-knead dough and rolled the rolls in sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and flax seeds.
Great dinner. Great show.
