The Doyle and Debbie Show

by Bruce Arntson

July 12 – September 8, 2019

After failed marriages and tabloid scandals Doyle Mayfield recruits a new singing partner – also his third Debbie – in an attempt to regain his former stardom. But when Debbie’s star starts to rise, the comeback becomes a setback for this has-been legend. Featuring original songs – “When You’re Screwin’ Other Women (Think of Me),” “Barefoot and Pregnant,” and “ABCs of Love”, this brilliant parody is a hysterical tribute to country music and its beloved iconic duos.



"Put on your cowboy boots and two-step your way to the theater, where you will never think of country music in quite the same way again... the audience was laughing at every number." — Houstonia

"THE DOYLE AND DEBBIE SHOW is a kick-up-your-heels, don’t-be-afraid-to-laugh, toe-tapping good time... It’s laugh-out-loud funny, an over-the-top satire that both harks back to a great era of country music – and artists like Wagoner, Dolly Parton, George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Conway Twitty and more – while affectionately skewering it all." — Houston Press

“90 minutes of goofy perfection—clever, hilarious, wacky and [brilliant]…” —Chicago Sun-Times.

“It is akin to George and Tammy doing a night at the Grand Ole Opry—only on mescaline.” — (Austin, TX).

“THE DOYLE AND DEBBIE SHOW is like Spinal Tap with a twang, and it manages to tweak and tickle without ever denigrating country music.” —The Tennessean (Nashville, TN).
