This was a moving production---a very close adaptation of the book. Must see. Just enough music, superior acting.

You might as well have gotten the book on CD. If you need that much narration, it such have been a movie and not a play. Yawn!!

Description

Adapted for the stage by Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatist Marsha Norman from the best-selling novel by Louise Erdrich, The Master Butchers Singing Club chronicles the intersecting lives of German immigrant and butcher Fidelis and sideshow performer Delphine as they settle into the small town of Argus, North Dakota. Bookended by the two World Wars and set against a tapestry of song, this moving story traces the bond between a mother and her child, the boundless friendship between two women, and one’s life-changing discovery of true love.
