The Fabulous Lipitones
Written by Mark St. Germain & John Markus
Directed by Justin Anderson
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Harmony
When one of their founding members drops dead mid-performance, this small town America barbershop trio must race to find a new member for their quartet to win the national competition. Choosing a tenor who is an Indian Sikh with dubious immigration credentials makes their road to victory a funny and touching lesson in what it takes to create real harmony. A world premiere musical by Mark St. Germain, author of the hit show, Freud's Last Session, and John Markus, head writer for The Cosby Show and writer/producer The Larry Sanders Show.
Talkback Performance 4/12 @ 2:30 p.m.
Our affordable Saturday matinees range from $15 - $22!
PRAISE FOR THE FABULOUS LIPITONES
"Even though barbershop may be the most uncool performance style this side of the musical saw, live theater turns out to be a terrific venue for it. Audiences will have a hard time resisting the group's warm harmonizing, old-school melodies, and cornball dance moves."
-- CREATIVE LOAFING
"The show's small cast features simply four of the best working actors in Atlanta. [Justin] Anderson's direction keeps the show moving briskly, but finds a way to take time to nurture the shows more poignant moments. Musical Director Michael Monroe does an excellent job in arranging the show's public domain songs into versions that allow the actors to sound like a group that has been singing a capella music together for 20-plus years. With their set and costume designs, sisters Isabel A. and Moriah Curley-Clay show why they are the most sought-after designers in town."
"The Fabulous Lipitones is sure to make the rounds at the best theaters around the country, so check it out today and say you saw it first in Atlanta."

"The extraordinary set design -- a basement recreation room full of all sorts of telling, touching, interesting and smart detail -- was by sister designers Isabel and Moriah Curley-Clay, who continue to do amazing work on the Atlanta theatrical scene."
