Originally conceived by composers Steve Thomas and Mark Brownell in 2000, The Barbecue King was initially developed in small sections at the Alumnae and Tarragon Theatres. The Barbecue King became a bit of a period piece as the middle class characters represented here have been steadily priced out of cottage country by the Kurt and Goldie's of the world. It is a light musical comedy.

In addition to The Barbeque King the evening opened with Stabat Martha, a piece that celebrates Steve Thomas and Mark Brownell's first collaboration in 1996. This piece was written as a tribute to the "to do list" calendar at the beginning of Martha Stewart Living Magazine. Nominated for a Dora Award it was a part of the Martha Stewart Projects. From the award-winning "Martha Stewart Projects" which premiered at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre in 1996.
