The ‘secret is in the sauce’ this week at the Orpheum

If you are of the generation that remembers "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson," "The Merv Griffith Show," "The Dick Cavett Show" or the game show called "Match Game," then you probably remember a recurring guest humorist by the name of Fannie Flagg. Alabama-born, Flagg spoke with that distinctive accent and Southern-style humor. She also appeared on several television shows of the 1970s and early 1980s. In her novel, "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe," Flagg demonstrates her humor and her style of storytelling not only in the book, but also the screenplay for the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes."
