The Fabulous Lipitones

May 18th, 2019
In Tandem Theatre

When the fourth member of The Fabulous Lipitones keels over while holding the winning B-flat during finals, the remaining three must scramble to find a replacement in time for the national competition! When they hear “Bob” singing beautifully over the phone, they’re all ears…but when they meet him, he’s not quite who they expected. A hilarious take on tolerance, preconceived notions and the perfect path to harmony in this play with music.
