Eating Raoul – The Musical is an ironic, amoral goof on marriage and the American dream, based on the wicked and perverse 1982 cult classic film by Paul Bartel. Mary and Paul Bland are a square, celibate couple -- she cooks, he collects wine -- completely out of step with the sexual revolution surrounding them in 1960's Los Angeles. Appalled by the "swinger" neighbors in their apartment complex, they inadvertently bop one on the head with Mary's frying pan and become tempted into a kinky life of crime in order to raise the down payment on a small, rustic restaurant far from LA. The soup thickens when they become involved with a partner, Raoul, their swarthy, sexy janitor, who helps them to help dispose of the bodies.
