In the 1960s and 70s, the Lug Nuts were all the rage. Four teenage grease monkeys formed an a cappella group and doo-wopped their way into the hearts of Mechanicsville. After a slight misunderstanding involving the popular Mary Sue Alsop, the guys went their separate ways. Now, in 1991, the leaders of the Pamunkey Matron Society have decided to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of Hanover Tavern by inviting the Lug Nuts to join voices once again for a holiday reunion concert. And Dorothy Turnblatt, the new music teacher at Hanover County Public Schools, has agreed to whip the “boys” back into shape. Great guys, great music, and a hub cap full of holiday fun!
Music by Grant Sturiale
Book and Lyrics by Barry Harman
In this jubilant, contemporary take on Greek mythology, Jupiter comes to Earth in human form to woo beautiful Alcemene, wife of Amphitryon. He appears to her in the body of her absent husband and quickly wins her love. Things go swimmingly until the real Amphitryon shows up! While enacting this Hellenic romp, Olympus casts a knowing wink at its showbiz roots. The "Greek" chorus consists of Tom, Dick and Horace, and delightfully dizzy Dolores (who's in the show only because she's the main squeeze of its financial backer, Murray the Furrier). "Percolates with naughty musical comedy fun." The New York Times. "A dazzling musical spoof." Newsday.
The roads are flooded, the bridges are washed out, and less generous souls are staying safely indoors, but it takes more than a little rain to keep the ladies of the Charitable Sisterhood from fulfilling their sworn mission. Come sit in on this month's meeting in the basement of Second Trinity Victory Church; our five angels of mercy will leave you breathless with laughter as they do their best to help the victims of global disaster, spiritual deprivation, and, most of all, each other. Don't miss this hilarious and heart-warming World Premiere by award winning Richmond playwright Bo Wilson.
