‘Thunder Knocking on the Door’ Comes to the Cauldron

The Tony Award-nominated show, “Thunder Knocking on the Door,” is a musical fable filled with humor, heart and the music of three-time Grammy award winner Keb’Mo’.

In a small Alabama town, a mysterious Blues guitar-playing stranger named Marvell Thunder arrives at the door of the Dupree family and brings a challenge for the offspring of late Jaguar Dupree, the only man who ever outplayed him in a “cutting contest.”

Thunder offers Glory Dupree, Jaguar’s blind daughter, a Faustian bargain: if he wins the contest he gets Jaguar’s guitar, and if she wins she gets her sight back.

Show runs Feb. 14 – March 10 at Creative Cauldron (410 S. Maple Ave., Retail 116, Falls Church) on Thursdays at 7:30 p.m., Fridays at 7:30 p.m., Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

$32 for adults, $28 for seniors and military, $20 for students and groups.
