I'll be making some Liberty Kitchen classics and throw in some surprises as well. We might, for instance, bring oysters from the Gulf in one day.

Then one night a socially inept and grief-stricken millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun " if you had the chance to live a life you ve always imagined and never dreamed possible " would you take it? Becky s New Car is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, and a delightful drive down the road not taken.
