These two older women are a perfect metaphor for the “economic crisis”, a.k.a. GD2 (Great Depression 2)
Paul and Mary Bland dream of opening a gourmet restaurant but they need money to do that. Why not lure sexual deviants to their apartment and kill them? When their swarthy, sexy janitor Raoul learns of their scheme, he partners with them to help dispose of the bodies. Thatâ€™s when things get complicatedâ€¦
Based on the cult 1982 film Eating Raoul this musical adaptation is a perfect summer treat for those who enjoy their musicals with a twist.

Handbag Productions staged a reading of Eating Raoul, The Musical. But, apparently the cast was so passionate about the show that they all memorized the script anyway! This is a short clip from the show.
