“Das Barbecu” at 4th Wall Theatre

“Das Barbecu”
Music by Scott Warrender
Book & Lyrics by Jim Luigs

Set in various locations throughout present day Texas, Das Barbecu is loosely based on Richard Wagner's massive four-part 20-hour opera cycle DER RING DES NIBELUNGEN - neatly compressed into a fun little two-hour musical comedy with 30 different characters portrayed by five actors. Opera-lovers and opera-haters alike will enjoy this witty fable of love conquering greed set in the Lone Star State. Hilarious scenes spin around two sets of mismatched lovers who meet on the day of their shotgun double wedding and three generations of outrageous characters from two feuding families. Complete with a magic ring, dwarfs, Siegfried, Brunhilde, Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders, Valkyries and guacamole, this is one opera (with Songs running the gamut from Broadway to Texas swing, from jazz to twangy country and western) not to be missed!

“…has been given nearly perfect form in "Das Barbecu," a slick, affable and perky retelling
