Legend has it that Sidney Poitier was so moved by the story of The Lilies of the Field that he waived his usual salary -- not knowing he would later win worldwide fame (and an Oscar) for his portrayal of the hard-headed Homer Smith. From the moment it was published as a novel by William E. Barret, The Lilies of the Field has had a special effect on people. Experience it yourself when Open Window Theatre presents this heart-warming stage adaptation. Headed west in search of a new beginning in the mid-1950s, black Southern Baptist itinerant worker Homer Smith encounters a group of Catholic nuns scratching out an existence in the remote Southwest. Mother Maria Marthe, convinced that Homer was sent to them by God to build them a chapel, persuades him to stay (without pay) and take on this seemingly impossible task. The faith of all are tested, proving that friendships and miracles alike come in all forms. Learn More
We went from a downtown appointment to the play, with time in between for lunch. In driving around St. Paul we couldn't seem to locate anything, so we went to the showboat and got tickets. We headed to Josephs which is excellent close by. However, at the other end of that strip is a place called the Wabasha Deli. It was great. Prices very reasonable and the friendliest and most helpful staff there. We will certainly go back. We also saw they had a wonderful private dining area if anyone goes with a group of people.dining • Oct 04 2013 star this tip starred
