Synopsis
Mr. Barbeque is a music theatre piece about greed, sexual rage, consumption, dogs and disappointment. The title character sings while cooking meat over a BBQ grill. Humorous and entertaining song subjects range from praising meat of all kinds in “Alphabet Cuisine” and contemplating fidelity in “Wrecked Eggs”, to boasting both virtues and problems with “Impossible Men.”
