A fun-filled, foot-stompin’ musical taken directly from the comics, LI’L ABNER is laced with gentle and knowing satire, rib-tickling gags, and a host of brash, catchy tunes. World-famous characters populate this upbeat show in a delightful mixture of hillbilly nonsense and sharp, critical humor. A Broadway hit in 1956, the show won two Tony Awards and celebrates the denizens of Dogpatch USA and their customs, such as the not-to-be-missed Sadie Hawkins Day Race.
LI’L ABNER is presented by arrangement with TAMS-WITMARK. www.tamswitmark.com
