A Limited Engagement At Legends In Concert: Church Basement Ladies

The holidays are over and the decorations are coming down. There's a chill in the air and let's face it, sometimes the subtle post-Christmas gloom of January sets in causing some of us to hibernate this time of year.

But this January, you have a chance to laugh your way out of the seasonal blahs at Broadway at the Beach's Legends in Concert during the limited engagement of Church Basement Ladies!

So what exactly is Church Basement Ladies?

Church Basement Ladies is a national touring show presented by Legends in Concert and Troupe America, Inc. that uses the popular Scandinavian Lutheran humor writings of "The Lutheran Ladies," Janet Martin and Suzann Nelson, authors of a host of humorous books, the most famous being GROWING UP LUTHERAN.

The show features four distinct characters and their relationships as they organize the food and solve the problems of a rural Minnesota church about to undergo changes in 1965. From the elderly matriarch of the kitchen to the young bride-to-be learning the proper order of things, we see them handle a record-breaking Christmas dinner, the funeral of a dear friend, a Hawaiian Easter Fundraiser, and, of course, a steaming hot July wedding. They stave off potential disasters, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the Pastor on due course while thoroughly enjoying and tolerating each other as the true "steel magnolias" of the church. Funny and down to earth, these ladies will be familiar to any audience as they witness the church year unfold from below the house of God.

You catch one of eight performances January 16th - January 20th. For more information and to book your seat, click here.

So before you choose to stay in and give in to those annual winter woes waiting for the first glimpse of Spring, and enjoy a night of laughter with the Church Basement Ladies at Legends in Concert.
