Watching a show during dinner is the most exciting way to liven up a meal, next to juggling silverware at the table or paying the violinists to play the entire Black Sabbath catalog. Delve into a meal while being entertained with today's GrouponLive deal: for $23, you get a Pennsylvania-Dutch style dinner buffet and one ticket to see Nunsense at the Lazy Susan Dinner Theatre in Lorton, Virginia (a $41.95 value on Fridays and Sundays, or a $44.95 value on Saturdays). Performances run every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night from August 27 to September 18. Doors open for seating and cocktails (not included with this Groupon) at 6 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 5 p.m. on Sunday. The buffet begins at 6:30 p.m. on Fridays, 7 p.m. on Saturdays, and 6 p.m. on Sundays, and the show starts at 8 p.m. on Fridays, 8:30 p.m. on Saturdays, and 7:30 p.m. on Sundays.
The Lazy Susan Dinner Theatre satisfies appetites for dramatic and comestible sustenance alike with professional performances of great stage works accompanied by delicious fare. This season, the playhouse raps its knuckles on funny bones with its rousing production of the acclaimed comic musical Nunsense. Hailed by critics and musical-theater fans with tattoos of nuns, Nunsense follows the foibles of Sister Julia, a middling chef who accidentally poisons her fellow sisters with tainted broth. Audiences gasp as the divine sisterhood devises ways to take the departed from the deep freeze to the grave, as the unabashedly silly show turns confessional booths into romper rooms. Handled with taste and grace, the outlandish comedy of Nunsense is old-fashioned, family-friendly, and safe for infant ventriloquist dummies.
Enjoy this production while dining from a Pennsylvania Dutch–style buffet that entices taste buds with entrees of roast beef, chicken, fish, and homemade desserts. Coffee, tea, and tax are included with this Groupon, although gratuity and foam fingers are not. A cash bar is also available on site to satisfy any libational longings.
Lazy Susan Dinner Theatre
When Lazy Susan Dinner Theatre's doors open for each evening's performance, guests are greeted and escorted to their tables where they can order cocktails. Then, with thirsts parched and pocket watches swinging, they move onward to a hot buffet of made-from-scratch Pennsylvania Dutch dishes, including breads, roast beef, chicken, fish, and housemade desserts. But sweets aren't the only treat here. After dessert, the curtain opens to family-friendly Broadway-style shows that incite laughter, explore American history, or challenge theatergoers to discern which actors are real ghosts. And to tie the dinner and show together even tighter, the performers are the same people pouring the coffee. DC Metro Theater Arts notes that "the warm ambiance found at The Lazy Susan is indeed half of the fun of going."
