"Jesu of Fondue" opens this weekend

I mentioned it earlier, but the first show of the Storefront Theatre's season opens this weekend, "Jesu of Fondue."

John Anderson, writing for the Charlotte Observer, has the story. He seems to keep a close eye on the happenings over at the Storefront Theatre. A snippet:
At 7:30 p.m. Sept. 24 and 2:30 p.m. Sept. 25 at the Museum of the Waxhaws - 704-243-7283 - The Storefront Theatre will open the season with a concert reading of "Jesu of Fondue," by Rocky Mount author and playwright Dawn DeAnna Wilson.

"It's the story of a housewife who sees the face of Jesus in a billboard advertisement for a fondue restaurant," Simpson Cook said. "That's when small-town North Carolina becomes a media circus that involves a wayward seminary student, a zealous reporter and a teenage runaway."
Sounds interesting, although I don't picture small-town North Carolina having a fondue restaurant for what it's worth. If you don't have plans, consider checking it out.
