SYNOPSIS – EATING RAOUL
The cult film classic has new life as a zany musical. The Blands want to open a restaurant, but they need cash. Suppose they lure weirdos to their apartment to kill and rob them? Soon, they are a financial success, but disposing of the bodies is a problem. Enter their devious apartment super, Raoul, with a proposition: he will take care of the corpses for a cut (when he’s not performing at a tacky nightclub) as well as seduce Mary right under Paul’s nose. The partnership runs amok, and Mary ultimately has to decide who to spend her life with. Who will win her heart? Will the restaurant dream become reality? And what or who is the main course?
