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.

Based on ancient myths, this tragedy examines how love and unabated passion can destroy lives. Phèdra is cursed by the gods to love her own stepson, Hippolytus. He in turn hides a secret love affair of his own. Emotional, turbulent and sexy, Phèdra is a mythical soap opera for a contemporary audience.
