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.

In our tell-all age of blogs, podcasts, YouTube—literary monologues and daytime television, even—everyone and anyone thinks they have a story worth sharing. But is that true? How do you take a good story and figure out which parts are worth telling? Or tease a good story from an idea that, at first glance, may not seem especially compelling? Gwen Macsai, host of Chicago Public Radio's Re:sound, and Neil Sandell, senior producer of the CBC's Outfront, will swap examples of memoir-style storytelling at its best—and pull back the curtain on how it works when it works.
Award-winning writer, producer, and humorist Gwen Macsai hosts Re:sound, the Third Coast International Audio Festival's weekly program showcasing documentaries from around the world. Her work has aired on Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and Weekend Edition Saturday. Gwen created the sitcom What About Joan?, which starred Joan Cusack, and she's author of Lipshtick, a collection of humorous essays.
Former playwright, teacher, and professional photographer Neil Sandell is senior producer of Outfront, the CBC's internationally-acclaimed and mold-breaking series of personal stories. Each installment is 15 minutes of storytelling, experimental audio, and new ways of making radio.
