Material is terrific, but the cast was disappointing.

First of all, there is no such thing as a bad Tom Lehrer show. I attended the first preview and had an enjoyable afternoon. That said, the cast needs to work on enunciation so that the humor of the internal rhymes comes through. Then the master...continued

The six people were fantastic! Funny, appropriate sketches, and up-to-date jibes! Sat next to 3 very intelligent people (one British) who laughed as much as we did. Great quick reps of the Elements, and wonderful choreography. Music and jokes with...continued

If your seat is stage right, wear long underwear, a hat, gloves, and a really warm coat--or sit stage left :-)

A DELIGHTFUL RE-EXPERIENCE OF THE TIMELESS HUMOR, WISDOM AND OFFBEAT WIT OF THIS AMAZING HUMAN BEING! MY YOUNGER COMPANIONS WERE DAZZLED BY THIS EXPERIENCE AND THE OTHER (90 YEARS YOUNG LEHRER VIRGIN) WAS EQUALLY ENTHRALLED! DON'T MISS THIS TOO...continued

I loved Tomfoolery! The singers were all excellent. It was funny, it was moving. The accompanying pianist was extremely good. It brought make many memories of Tom Lehrer, a very gifted songwriter. I would urge everyone to go see it. You will have...continued

It's a little rough around the edges, both the performance and the venue. If you love Tom Lehrer you may well enjoy this

To get your Tom Lehrer fix, all his classics are here (except New Math, which I missed). The actress who did Elements at double speed was the highlight of the show. A respectable production.

The lyrics are so timeless ... and fun. If you don't know Tom Leher's songs, you should.

The cast flubbed their lines, there were pitch problems, the piano sounded out
of tune and some read their lines from cards held in their hands. The show was too wordy and needs editing in the worst way. The first half went so slowly. The second...continued

We attended a dress rehearsal. What the cast may have lacked in polish (it was a rehearsal after all), they more than made up for in enthusiasm.

Any chance to hear the music of Tom Lehrer is a joy and this was no exception. Four, not five, stars simply because the performers, while very good, still could have been better.

A couple of the cast were better than others (the black gal was terrific), but they didn't know their lines, and their timing was terrible even tho the script and songs were great.

Last year I saw this company’s production of Roar of the Greasepaint which I greatly enjoyed. They’re skilled at creating compelling, compact productions. I’m a big fan of Tom Lehrer and they delivered his songs with joy and skill. They even...continued

Very funny ! Well performed with lots of energy by talented actors.
Good to laugh at the political skewing (which when written in the mid 50's through early 60's) unfortuantely, resonates today as well.

We have listened to Tom Lehrer songs since the mid 60's and they are as relevant now as they were before. It was a wonderful performance and very well sung and acted. It was a perfect way to spend a few hours laughing. I would strongly...continued

All us who remember Tom Lehrer, oldsters that we are, will be reminded of Tom's famous lyrics. Satire at its best. A chance for those younger than say 65 to hear his briliance.

If you know Tom Lehrer's music, this was great fun. The sing along show would be even more fun.
