A young woman named Percy is released from prison and hopes to put down roots in a small Wisconsin town. A musical about community.
In the '96 movie, Ellen Burstyn played Hannah, the owner of the grill who takes Percy under her wing. Marcia Gay Harden played Shelby, the wife of Hannah's nephew Caleb and a much better cook than Percy.
The musical started previews (off-Broadway, at Playwrights Horizons) just four days before 9/11.
