Photo Coverage: The York Theatre Company Presents TOMFOOLERY
The award-winning York Theatre Company (James Morgan, Producing Artistic Director) presented TOMFOOLERY as a part of its Fall 2011 Musicals in Mufti Concert Series-the York's acclaimed series of musical theatre gems in staged concert performances.
York's Musicals in Mufti Series has presented over 75 shows from the past in simply-staged concert format; Mufti means: "in street clothes," without the trappings associated with the original productions. Tickets for both shows will be available for $39.50 online, by phone at 212-935-5820, and in person at the York Box Office (open Monday through Friday, 12-6 PM). Performances are Fridays at 8 PM; Saturdays at 2:30 and 8 PM; and Sundays at 2:30 and 7:30 PM (with talkbacks following all 2:30 PM performances).
Tomfoolery features the words and music of Tom Lehrer and is adapted by Cameron Mackintosh and Robin Ray with musical arrangements by Chris Walker and Robert Fisher. Directed by Pamela Hunt (The Musical of Musicals), Tomfoolery offers a witty and wicked look at the works of famed satirical songwriter (and Harvard math professor) Tom Lehrer. Pushing boundaries in a playful way, Lehrer's songs have delightfully skewered the world for over fifty years. Nothing is sacred in this hilarious revue, filled with unabashed riffs on pop culture, including such favorite tunes as "The Old Dope Peddler," "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park," and "The Vatican Rag."
