From the writer/star of the original musical parody of Mad Men, “The Mad World of Miss Hathaway”, Angela Di Carlo (Attention Deficit Disorder Cabaret) comes a new country fried musical sure to tickle your fancy this holiday season. It’s 1974 and semi-famous local country singer Lannie Jo-Lynn Butterfly is freshly divorced, out of the sanitarium and supposedly “full of the Lord” and ready for a comeback. Along for the ride is her cranky mother (Amber Martin) simple minded daughter (Louisa Bradshaw) and her book smart 13 year old granddaughter (Jack Bartholet) who wants nothing to do with them. They may bicker and fight, but when they sing they make sweet harmony. Justin Elizabeth Sayre (The Meeting) directs.
