Really Spicy Opera’s production of A Pickle has been honored with two 2017 Broadway World-Minneapolis awards:
- Best Original/New Work
- Best Actress in a Play
The award for “Original/New Work” honors both the production overall and the script by Deborah Yarchun. The award for “Best Actress in a Play” honors Angela Timberman.
Playwright Deborah Yarchun based her script for A Pickle on real-life events at the Minnesota State Fair, which turned into a national scandal in the early 2000s. The comedic script with a hard-hitting message struck a chord with audiences, selling out every performance at the 2017 Minnesota Fringe Festival, including an added encore performance. A follow-up engagement at Bryant-Lake Bowl also completely sold out; A Pickle can next be seen at the 2018 Twin Cities Jewish Humor Festival (Sabes Jewish Community Center, St. Louis Park, MN) on Monday, 1/22 at 7:30 PM.
