based on the play Der Besuch der alten Dame (The Visit) by Friedrich DŁrrenmatt

These are not the only selling points for the current national tour though. Some strong casting, a fierce band fully integrated into the diner setting (led by DC's own tremendously talented Jenny Cartney), and female characters you want to root for in Jessie Nelson's book make this one to see.
