Chef Jeff Chrystal will offer a buffet on Mother’s Day, May 13, in the attached lobby of Powers and Auditorium and Overture restaurant. Reservations are required.
Easy Street first produced “Pump Boys” 30 years ago. The lighthearted musical that takes place at a gas station-diner would go on to run for 200 performances at the former Uptown Theater – a record breaking run of two years.
The 30th anniversary cast will include many of the original members: Maureen Collins, Robyn Bass, Rick Blackson and Todd Hancock. Randy Bass will fill the void left by the death of Jeff Sanders from the original cast.
The show includes a number of original country rock songs.
