The Lazy Susan Dinner Theater satisfies appetites for dramatic and comestible sustenance alike with professional performances of great stage works accompanied by delicious fare. This season, the Lazy Susan presents its production of Big River, the musical adaptation of Mark Twain's literary classic Huckleberry Finn. A winner of seven Tony Awards on Broadway and scored by multiple-Grammy-award-winning songwriter Roger Miller, Big River follows Huck, a mischievous rascal, and Jim, a runaway slave, as they venture on a raft down the mighty Mississippi River. Along the way, they learn the true meaning of friendship, the value of freedom, and how to correctly spell Mississippi. 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."
