Enjoy King BBQ pop-up and PURE Theatre’s final performance of Clyde’s

Creating the perfect sandwich is the shared quest of the formerly incarcerated kitchen staff of Clyde’s, a truck stop cafe. Even as the shop’s mischievous owner tries to keep them under her thumb, the staffers are given purpose and permission to dream — finding that “sometimes a hero is more than a sandwich,” said a review by The New York Times. The cast of this PURE Theatre performance includes Joy Vandervort-Cobb, Tonya Smalls Williams, Michael Smallwood, Addison Dent and Keith Alston. Directed by Chad Henderson. Tickets are available at puretheatre.org for the last three shows: Nov. 17-19. To celebrate the final performance on Nov. 19, King BBQ will host a pop-up build-your-own-sandwich bar prior to the show.
