MARCH THEATRE HIGHLIGHT:
A satire sharper than a gator's tooth; Barbecue follows the O'Mallery siblings (portrayed as parallel black and white families) as they set up a barbecue-cum-intervention for their youngest (and wildest) sibling. Of course nothing is what it seems in this "ferociously funny" play (LA TIMES) that drags everyone over the coals.
Bursting with superb writing, hilarious wit, and top-notch theatrical invention, Barbecue is sure to SURPRISE, OFFEND, and DELIGHT New Orleans audiences.
BARBECUE Presented by The Radical Buffoons The Fortress of Lushington March 21-April 6
