A fun-filled, foot-stompin’ extravaganza from the composers of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Trouble begins in the cornseed town of Dogpatch, USA when the government decides to wipe it off the map. Hilarious protests and a riotous Sadie Hawkins Day chase ensue. Based on the classic comic strip, Li’l Abner is packed with one showstopping dance after another - pure entertainment for the whole family! Winner of 2 Tony Awards.
