The Aurora Fox Arts Center in Aurora presents Tomfoolery with live, in-theatre performances on the mainstage from September 18th – October 11th, 2020. The musical reveals the witty, wicked and thoroughly twisted world of famed satirical songwriter Tom Lehrer. Throughout the 1950s and ’60s, Harvard educated math nerd, Tom Lehrer, delighted millions of fans with his dry and cynical (but still good-humored) attacks on the A-bomb, racism, pollution, pornography, the military, the Boy Scouts and, of course, mathematics. Nothing is sacred in this hysterical revue based on Tom’s numerous, now-classic concert recordings and TV appearances. Three of Colorado’s favorite musical comedians will perform some of Lehrer favorites like“Poisoning Pigeons in the Park,” “When You are Old and Grey,” “The Masochism Tango,” “The Old Dope Peddler” and “The Vatican Rag,” as well as an unforgettable Gilbert and Sullivan-esque recitation of the table of elements, all linked together with Tom’s own inimitable concert patter.
