Poisoning Pigeons in the Park: The relevant, radical and risque songs of Tom Lehrer
Tom Lehrer is alive and well  and a new revue of his songs is about to get Seattle audiences singing along again!  The show had a successful run at the Market Theatre in Pike Place Market last fall, and is back by popular demand.

Lehrer was a cult figure until he retired in the early '70s: a mathematician at Harvard and MIT, who would sit down at a piano and spin out catchy and hilarious songs that satirized the politics and culture wars of the time.  A whole generation of us, who grew up singing with his LP's, are about to discover that his tunes are just as catchy and his lyrics as sharp and timely as ever.

Arne Zaslove, noted theater director, and John Engerman, composer and musical director, have gathered more than twenty of Lehrer's most popular songs.  A small cast of highly talented Seattle singers will gather around a keyboard, manned by Mr. Engerman, and introduce you to the joys of "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park."  If you are not familiar with Tom Lehrer's brilliance, you will marvel at the imagination and wit that remain as fresh as when he toured the country, as the Cold War and the Civil Rights Movement played out in reality.
