Now Playing: LI’L ABNER

 Read Walter Bender’s review in STAGE Magazine HERE.


book by Norman Panama and Melvin Frank, music by Gene De Paul, and lyrics by Johnny Mercer.

1957 Tony Award winner

Al Capp’s classic comic strip characters step off the the funny pages onto the stage.  Li’L Abner aims its satirical darts at everything from to right-wing militarists and incompetent politicians to gender standards and social conformity.  Features the great musical theatre toe-tappers, Jubilation T. Cornpone, If I Had My Druthers, Progress is the Root of All Evil, The Matrimonial Stomp, and more!
