PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

The GUYS are back! The last time Joey Ellington, DeWayne Morgan, Greg Morris, and Topher Payne got together on stage, it was for "Golden Girls LIVE," which the AJC called "The wackiest fundraiser of the year."

They're at it again. This time, they're taking on two episodes of the classic CBS sitcom "Designing Women." Suzanne re-connects with a friend from her pageant days, who may be the world's oldest living debutante, and the girls from Sugarbakers defend Bernice at her sanity hearing. And of course, we learn the story of The Night the Lights Went Out In Georgia.

Both Sides Now

The guys are hysterical as the gals. Of special note are DeWayne Morgan out-sashaying Delta Burke as Suzanne, Topher Payne's indelible Julia Sugarbaker (Topher has such a gift for the musicality of language), and Jill Hames' pitch perfect cluelessness as Bernice. The episodes Process has chosen to reprise have many crowd pleasing lines - so much so they were often spoken by the audience in anticipation. These are our hymns, our call and response. And we have learned them well.

Wednesday's performance was SRO, Thursday's performance starting to shape up as a packed house as well, so don't delay if you want to catch this delightful show. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
