They’re back — and we’re damned glad about it. Mavis Applebee and her best bud Myrtle McGillicurdle will once again be performing their musical relationship seminar, Country Gravy & Other Obsessions. The two-person cast of this silly songfest includes Houston singers Julia Kay Laskowski and Patricia Rabaza, who also created the show. Together, they render advice in song with tunes like “Swingin’ with the Change” and “French Fry on the Floorboard.” They also ask some hard questions of the audience — including “Do you folks have relations with your bodies?” — and talk and talk about food. And it’s all done on a simple set with fold-out chairs and a whiteboard.
