Fun With Johnny Cakes 

Thursday, Oct 29 2009
There's a whole lotta WTF?! going around town right now. The highly eclectic WTF?! Festival in the name of the Actors Gang continues with All Cake, No File. Donna Jo Thorndale performs a "Johnny Cash prison tribute cooking show-concert." Cash tribute band With a Bible and a Gun plays an appropriate soundtrack. Fun fact: According to Cash's son John Carter, when his dad was in New York, where he kept an apartment. he liked to go out for lox, cheese blintzes and matzo-ball soup. He was also said to be fond of chili, fried chicken, mac and cheese and pecan pie. (Is it any wonder he died from complications from diabetes?)
Fridays, 9 p.m. Starts: Oct. 30. Continues through Nov. 27, 2009
