Church Basement Ladies, a musical written by Jim  Stowell and Jessica Zuehlke with music and lyrics by  Drew Jansen has been playing to sellout crowds for 29 months in Minneapolis. The church basement kitchen throughout much of America is often the heart and soul of any church. In  "Church Basement Ladies" we meet the pastor, three main kitchen cooks and one daughter who run the kitchen and care for the congregation by preparing and serving the food . Like any great kitchen, problems are solved here as well. We see the four women handle a  Lutefisk Dinner, a funeral, an Easter Fund Raiser, and,  of course, a wedding. The stave off potential disasters, have fun, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the pastor on due course.   This musical comedy based on recipes, food, and  change in the church is funny, heart warming, and  down to earth. It will bring back memories of many  people you know from churches everywhere.
