“Bow your head with great respect and genuflect, genuflect, genuflect!”
From the space race to mathematics, from politics to pigeons, from chemistry to Catholicism: no subject is too big or small for Tom Lehrer’s razor-sharp wit. Sometimes satirical and sometimes absurd, Lehrer’s songs capture the spirit of an age. Peppered with deliciously funny anecdotes, Stefan Bednarczyk’s show, sung from the piano, includes such classics as ‘The Vatican Rag’, ‘Poisoning Pigeons in the Park’, ‘Clementine’, and ‘The Elements’.
Acclaimed as one of the greatest American songwriters, Tom Lehrer combined his musical career with lecturing in mathematics. Stefan Bednarczyk, ‘The King of Cabaret’, returns to JST with this new show.
