Barbara's Blue Kitchen

Synopsis:
Set in a small town just outside of Nashville, this slice-of-life comedic play with music is a genuine look into the hearts of everyday people. as the proprietor, Barbara Jean, tries to figure out 'When is it courageous and when is it just plain crazy to hang on to love,' her customers come in and take a load off by sharing their funny, heartbreaking humanity. there's Miss Morris a nurse who's planning a Pyramid prayer-time, Miss Tessie, a senior citizen who's gonna make you laugh and steal your heart, a Tupperware brandishing, plate-dropping waitress named Jeanette, Lombardo-a country-singing hairdresser, Tommy Lee, who is recovering from a dog-bite and Melissa a mixed-up Mother of three. Throughout it all, the wacky DJ from WaTR, the local radio station, breaks in with local news, commercials about baldness and whole slew of quirky, unforgettable toe-tapping songs.

Along with the family dry cleaning business, Junie has also inherited the responsibility of taking care of her aging father and her sister who has just come back from rehab. When all Junie wants is to achieve her dream of becoming a country star, a small opportunity comes her way via the local church. She has been offered the opportunity to sing parting songs that are tailor-made for the recently deceased. A hilarious and compelling musical about family, loss, and the ways life gives you exactly what you need.
