Plenty of places around there to dine at (we went to Coopers over on Belmont) and street parking on Lincoln is free after 6PM.

Yes, they do have a memorial wall w/ photos & flowers, just like a real funeral, so if you are so inclined bring your own.

What a big "wow" this show is with more than a few laugh out loud moments. Cudos to the cast and crew of POTH. We enjoyed this production and look forward to more Hell in a Handbag shows.

I truly enjoyed the show. Hell in a Handbag productions are terrific and fun. All around the acting was great, the guy playing Maggie was beautiful and hard to believe she is really a he. Bravo to all involved.

Description

Hell in a Handbag Productions is proud to kick off their season with a tale so big there’s barely room to contain its bubbling melodrama. A tale of mendacity; of greed and avarice; of longing and lesbians; all set in the hot and steamy South.

Ryan Landry’s Pussy on the House takes Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and turns it into a tale of languid melodrama, gut busting laughter, and oh so bitter truths that made the original a classic of epic proportions.

Cast: Christopher Carpenter, David Cerda, Jason Grimm, Ed Jones, Eric Lindahl, Jeremy Myers and Honey West as Big Mama.
