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-heck, redeeming his lost promise and reinventing a brand new Conrad Ticklebottom.

I like Porchlight very much - they do a great job in a small space. I found some of the words hard to understand in this production, however - music too loud? my ear not ready for the words? It is clever and good to look at...keep up the good work!
From the creators of Assassins comes this exploration of the painful westernization of Japan as told through the story of two friends caught in the inevitable winds of change. Mixing elements of Kabuki theater with the conventions of the Broadway musical, this is considered by many to be the artistic pinnacle of the legendary Sondheim/Prince collaborations.
