MONROE - The Monroe Arts Center is serving up a comedy romp with outrageous country-fried Southern characters and country, blues and rockabilly tunes, when "Della's Diner" plays at 7:30 p.m. April 25 in the Gunderson Stiles Concert Hall, 1315 11th St. "Della's Diner," book by Tom Edwards, music by Harris Wheeler and lyrics by Mary L. Fisher, premiered in Atlanta in 1978 and ran for many years, developing a cult following and spawning a slew of hit sequels. The story hinges on the experiences of three women. Della, who has escaped her own dark past, is the sassy, big-hearted café owner who dispenses love, wisdom and moral advice to the parade of oddballs who come and go from her cozy diner on Morning Glory Mountain.
