Thunder Knocking on the Door

This play is a musical story about a small town in Alabama.  A stranger who happened to play the blues went by the name of Marvell Thunder and he mysteriously became close to the Dupree family.  Marvell Thunder challenged the children of Jaguar Dupree-was lucky enough to be the only one who beat him in a guitar playing contest.  The play started at Arena Stage in 1999 and has continued to sell out at venues around the country.  The musical was written by Keith Glover and the music and lyrics are by Keb 'Mo' and Anderson Edwards.

I have a smart phone so people can email me via meetup if they can or can not attend.

Will send out my cell to people who have responded yes in a later email.

Parking is FREE in the Pearson building square building where the play is taking place.  Plenty of parking there.  Plus nearby street parking.

Please make sure you meet me close to 7:30 since we want to get good seats because I forgot to mention that the seating is not reserve seating.  I believe Ronni mentioned that.

    Dee et al,
    They do serve 2 types of veggie burgers. Hope you were happy and didn't have to wait long.

    I just found out that a European airline pilot friend is coming in from overseas for a short layover. I haven't seen him in years, and must therefore bow out for this evening. My apologies for the short notice. I don't know when he might be back. Have lots of fun.

    OK, we've moved from 4Ps to Elevation Burger, which is fine. Hopefully they have turkey or veggie burgers!

    Hi Everyone,
    Thanks for the offer but don't have time for dinner before the show! Have fun. Elevation Burger is a good bet but might be crowded. You can order online.

    OK, doors open for the play at 7:30 and seating is first come/first serve. So I vote for Elevation Burger, and if anyone wants to join me there, that would be great! I'll plan to be there from about 6:15-6:20 or so on. I have short auburn hair so you can spot me and have on black pants and a blue shirt. See you later!

    Dee/anyone else, do you want to meet at Four P's? If so, I'm game, am guessing 6:30 would be a good time. What do you think?

    May 17, 2013

  • Dee E

    I just bought my ticket. I'm up for dinner. Four P's is also nearby. Street parking or parking lots on either side of the building. I usually use the one behind Pizza Orso.

    Also, is anyone interested in meeting for dinner before the show? Isn't Elevation Burger near there? Am totally open to suggestions if anyone has ideas.
