"Some of the most meaningful and well-written songs I've heard in a musical in a long time ... "
Stacy Peterson, Fayetteville Observer

“The songs channel such diverse songsmiths as Johnny Cash and the Beastie Boys with touches of Southern Gospel and traditional Broadway ballad. The show is a rare treat.”
Tim Hager, Up and Coming Magazine

"These words come to mind when describing the oddity of a musical set in a nursing home: irreverent and unflinchingly human ... It has Edgerton and Craver's knack for taking a Southern theme and making it Universal."
Stacy Peterson, Fayetteville Observer

“Director Steve Umberger has translated the music and lyrics by Mike Craver and Clyde Edgerton into a funny, teary, and totally unforgettable show.
Susan Farrington, Sanford Herald


You think that old people are
Something kind of miserable
you have to turn your head away from
You act like you don’t see us
And then you try to flee us
When you really could free us
But you fiddle-dee-dee us
Well, you’d better watch out
Cause someday you’re gonna be us!


How does a glass eye work?
Are there nerves or muscles
or special corpuscles
that make it go around?
How does a glass eye work?
What in the world do you do
when it’s lookin’ at you?
When you’ve got the wrong eye,
it must be queer ‘
What do you say -
“Hey buddy, over here!?”


"Lunch at the Piccadilly is about people who aren't waiting to die, but continuing to live to the very end. It is a play of small movements, but of big ideals and heart."
