Fresh from a concert at Joe’s Pub in New York City with a revamped book and expanded score, last year’s queer holiday hit WE THREE LIZAS is back… and better than ever! Box maker Conrad Ticklebottom’s life has hit a stumbling block. Once, Conrad and his purple box ignited an entire movement in art and design, but now he finds himself alone, forgotten and teetering on ruin.
The holidays bring three magical figures to his door – a trio of Liza Minnellis to escort him on a fabulous journey through what-was, what-could-be and what-the-f*?!, redeeming his lost promise and re-inventing a brand-new Conrad Ticklebottom. It’s a darkly sparkly holiday musical spinning a tale of hope, transformation…and the power of Liza!
WE THREE LIZAS will feature many of the original cast members including Scott Duff*, John Francisco*, Sharriese Hamilton, Danielle Plisz (Jeff Award-nominated), Dana Tretta and Andrew Swan in addition to newcomers Mark David Kaplan, James Nedrud and Bethany Thomas. Musicians include Aaron Benham (piano/conductor), Jed Feder (drums) and Debra Johnson (bass). *Denotes AFT Artistic Associates.
