Blackfriars Theatre, a not-for-profit professional theatre on East Main Street's "Theatre Row" is bringing back the smash hit from last year, "Tomfoolery," with words and music by Tom Lehrer, July 8-August 5, 2012.
In concerts, television appearances and a series of now classic recordings, the Harvard educated math professor delighted millions of fans during the 1950's and 60's with his dry, cynical but good-natured attacks on topics like the A-bomb, racism, pollution, pornography, the military, the boy scouts, and of course, mathematics. Lehrer influenced comedians across the spectrum, from Steve Martin to Mark Russell.
