Directed by Gwen Adams, TomFoolery is based on The Tom Lehrer Songbook, and is a show like no other. Written by Cameron Mackintosh and Robin Ray, with music and lyrics by Tom Lehrer, TomFoolery is a musical revue of novelty songs (there are no sad ones in this bunch). Music, laughter, and no one spared—when you’re dealing with the humor of Tom Lehrer, nothing is sacred (Lehrer’s songs were popular on the hit radio show, “Dr. Demento”). A Harvard professor, Tom’s witty twist of lyrics and irreverent attack of anything from the Boy Scouts to the Vatican (now there’s a timeless topic!) is unsurpassed. Not for the finicky or purest of heart. Popular songs include: “Poisoning Pigeons in the Park,” “Vatican Rag,” “The Elements Song,” and “I Hold Your Hand in Mine.”
