Third Avenue Playhouse
by Cameron Mackintosh and Robin Ray, with music and lyrics by Tom Lehrer
A revue of the witty, wicked and thoroughly twisted world of famed satirical songwriter Tom Lehrer. In concerts, television appearances and a series of now-classic recordings, the Harvard-educated math professor delighted millions of fans during the 1950s and ’60s with his dry and cynical, but good-humored, attacks on the A-bomb, racism, pollution, pornography, the military, the Boy Scouts and, of course, mathematics. Nothing is sacred in this hysterical revue that features such Lehrer favorites as “Poisoning Pigeons in the Park,” “When You Are Old and Grey,” “The Masochism Tango,” “The Old Dope Peddler” and “The Vatican Rag,” as well as an unforgettable Gilbert and Sullivan-esque recitation of the table of elements, linked together with his own inimitable concert patter.
