MARCH IS CABARET MONTH Presents:
JOHN ENGERMAN & MICHAEL KING in "TOM LEHRER: A PROPHET BEFORE HIS TIME"
Tom Lehrer, known for such irreverent songs as "Poisoning Pigeons In The Park" and "Vatican Rag", was a political satirist with a biting wit - and a prophet of foibles we seem to be experiencing all over again. In the spirit of Lehrer's original delivery - a couple of guys and a piano - John Engerman and Michael King present a set of his most relevant songs, occasionally updated to reflect the current political climate change.
John has been writing, arranging, music directing and playing for theatrical productions since the mid 70s. As a composer, highlights include Ronnie Bwana Jungle Guide, The Big Bad Wolf (and How He Got That Way), Ming the Rude (Empty Space Theatre), The Ballad of Mary Reade, (Bathhouse Theatre), and Prince Brat and the Whipping Boy (Seattle Childrens Theatre). Cabaret shows featuring his arrangements of others tunes include The Fabulous Sateens, The Sirens of Swing, and numerous one-woman shows with his wife, Jayne Muirhead.
Mike King represents clients before state and federal appellate courts, to which he has presented over 150 oral arguments shows that run for just one performance. Mike is also a member of Arne Zaslove's Hit & Run Theater Company. His roles have included Francis Tasbrough in Sinclair Lewis's "It Can't Happen Here"; the Judge in Freddie Brinster's "Dark Farce"; Professor Willard in "Our Town"; and President Harry Truman in "In the Realm of Whispering Ghosts: If Truman Met Einstein." Mike also appeared in Hit & Run's musical review of the songs of Tom Lehrer, "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park."
