THE STORY: What happens when a barbershop quartet loses a key member to a heart-stopping high B-flat? The three surviving members are scrambling to find a tenor before a national competition. When they hear golden tones being sung over the phone at an autobody shop, the three Lipitones left are sure they have their fourth…but when they meet him in person, he’s not quite what they expected. An uproarious comedy that puts a fusty American musical genre into today’s globalized, sensationalistic world.
THE FABULOUS LIPITONES doesn’t set out to be fabulous, and that makes this friendly show all the better. Indeed, this a cappella musical works just fine without much glitter or glamour—its greatest pleasures spring from the simplest of intentions.” —The New York Times.

“THE FABULOUS LIPITONES is pure fun from the opening scene to the final curtain call.” —BroadwayWorld.
