Lanyard Skynerd - The Musical is the story of the greatest fictional southern rock-parody-corporate- entertainment band in the world! This foot stomping new musical parody takes a look at the fledgling cover band's rise, meteoric fall, and ultimate redemption during a rowdy, one-night-only reunion; organized by their vacuous, anything-for-a-buck manager.
Lanyard Skynerd - The Musical is the southern rock jukebox equivalent of Million Dollar Quartet, utilizing hilariously offensive parody lyrics not heard onstage since The Book of Mormon. It promises to provide a nostalgic, and utterly weird evening of southern rock classics performed like you've never heard them before, accompanied by a 5-piece band featuring some of Chicago's top session musicians.
Lanyard Skynerd - The Musical is written by Ed Furman (alumnus, Second City Mainstage) and T.J. Shanoff (co-creator, The Roof Is On Fiddler), creators of the box office hit Rod Blagojevich Superstar! (Second City, Chicago Shakespeare Theatre); directed by Mick Napier, Jeff Award winner and founder of Annoyance Theater; and stars Tributosaurus lead singer and WSCR-AM radio host Matt Spiegel. Lanyard Skynerd - The Musical also features longtime Second City performers Greg Mills, Lori McClain, and Karla Beard. Kyle Anderson (Second City e.t.c.) is the lighting designer.
