Barbara’s Blue Kitchen

"Fischer's small-town-slice-of-life comedy offers a sincere look into the hearts of everyday people...virtual tour de force."Critics' Pick, Nashville Scene

Set in a small town just outside of Nashville, this slice-of-life comedic play with music is a genuine look into the hearts of everyday people. As the proprietor, Barbara Jean, tries to figure out "When is it courageous and when is it just plain crazy to hang on to love," her customers come in and take a load off by sharing their funny, heartbreaking humanity. There's Miss Morris a nurse who's planning a Pyramid prayer-time, Miss Tessie, a senior citizen who's gonna make you laugh and steal your heart, a Tupperware brandishing, plate-dropping waitress named Jeanette, Lombardo—a country-singing hairdresser, Tommy Lee, who is recovering from a dog-bite and Melissa a mixed-up Mother of three. Throughout it all, the wacky DJ from WATR, the local radio station, breaks in with local news, commercials about baldness and whole slew of quirky, unforgettable toe-tapping songs.
