Okay, so maybe the road trip was a bit much, but you still need something to whet your appetite for Shakespeare until King Lear opens in September. How about a food tour of Fayetteville inspired by our upcoming season?
King Lear: The Blind Pig
Blindness is thematically important in King Lear. Ponder that while you have some barbecue from this fantastic Fayetteville food truck.
A Midsummer Night’s Lit: Huske Hardware House
A boozy romp calls for a brewery with a well-appointed bar.
Behold: Fred Chason’s Grandsons
Our folk Christmas cantata is becoming a family tradition. What local restaurant embodies family and tradition better than Grandsons?
Songs for a New World: Thai Pepper
Sweet Tea’s first musical is all about the moment of decision, and what decision can be more fraught than what to order for dinner? Spare yourself the agita and enjoy the buffet at Thai Pepper. Save your emotional energy for the decisions that really matter.
Jane Eyre: Fayetteville Pie Company
What could be more appropriate for a classic of British literature than that Anglophile’s dream, the savory pie? And, just like the play, you can (and should) end with something sweet.
The Tempest: Habana
The Tempest takes place on an island, so sample the cuisine of an island nation.
Pericles: 316 Oyster Bar
Shipwreck. Seafood. Of course.
So order dinner, then order season tickets. See you at a show!
