As promised, here's the info on the new show (yay!) at Blackfriars Theatre, "Tom Foolery".
I had never heard of this revue style musical.
I had also never heard the name Tom Lehrer. He is an American singer-songwriter, satirist, pianist and mathematician, best known for the humorous ditties that he recorded in the 1950's, 60's and early 70's.
This musical pays homage to those ditties.
If you enjoy Mel Brooks or the Smothers Brothers, you'll probably really like this! And, if you don't like them? You should come anyway and hear four people sing about smut and killing birds cabaret style. Good times!
If you want to familiarize yourself with Mr. Lehrer and his brand of humor, click here!
Hope to see you there!
