Honky Tonk Laundry

Move over, Thelma and Louise! 

When Lana Mae Hopkins, owner and proprietress of the Wishy Washy Washateria, hires Katie to help out in the laundromat, they soon find themselves up to their elbows in soap, suds, and cheatin’ hearts. Take a ride to Nashville heaven with classic country songs you love like “Stand By Your Man,” “These Boots Are Meant For Walking” “Before He Cheats” and more!

The Hippodrome Theatre is proud to present our 2022-23
Season, LIVE on the Mainstage. A fireman questions his role in a dystopian society, family competition turns election night into a comedy of errors, wrestlers dazzle in a theatrical smackdown, neighbors squabble over butterflies and a chain-linked fence, a woman reaches for the stars in a turn of the century men’s world, and the Murder For Two boys return by popular demand – this time with a holiday twist!  These are just some of the characters you will meet in the 50th season at the Hippodrome Theatre, BEYOND LIMITS.
