Global Works Presents: Poisoning Pigeons in the Park
Time & Location
About the Event
This is a ticketed event, but if cost is a barrier, please let us know.
Tom Lehrer is alive and well – and a new revue of his songs is about to get Seattle audiences singing along … again! 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 LPs, are about to discover that his tunes are just as catchy and his lyrics as sharp and timely as ever.
Global Works has gathered a bunch of Lehrer’s most popular songs. A small cast of highly talented Seattle singers will gather around a keyboard, manned by Mr. John 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.
Accessibility: Wheelchair lift available at the SW entrance (off Brooklyn Ave).
