Coming off of a sold out 14-week run in Los Angeles, Paradise, a sinfully divine bluegrass comedy, brings its irreverent, heart-warming, toe-tapping show to Austin Playhouse before heading across the country. This down-on-their-luck Southern coal mining town gets a big dose of reality when a charismatic preacher, saucy stripper, and greedy Hollywood production company show up to try to create their own version of the American Dream.
