After a recent performance at Joe's Pub in New York City, last year's queer holiday hit We Three Lizas is back with a revamped book and expanded score. Box maker Conrad Ticklebottom's life has hit a stumbling block. At one time, his purple box sparked an entire movement in art and design, but now he's been forgotten and teetering on ruin. Just in the nick of time, 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 reinventing a brand-new Conrad Ticklebottom.

Really enjoyed the performance, the singing was good (though there were a couple very minor sound problems).
The moderns day setting / interpretation didn't seem to add anything for me, but it disnt detract either.
They made the show work nicely in an intimate space.
It is definately worth seeing!
This theatrical adaptation of the popular fairy tale The Little Mermaid is the story of Ti Mouna, a black peasant girl who rescues, nurses, and falls in love with Daniel, a mulatto from a wealthy family. When Daniel is returned to his people, the island gods guide Ti Mouna on a quest to test the strength of her love against the forces of prejudice, hatred and death itself.
