Laugh at the Wicked and Witty ‘Tomfoolery’

After a record-breaking run of its last musical, Third Avenue Playhouse is presenting Tomfoolery, a musical revue of the witty, wicked, cynical and thoroughly twisted world of famed satirical songwriter Tom Lehrer.

In concerts, television appearances and a series of now-classic recordings, the Harvard-educated math professor delighted millions of fans during the 1950s and ’60s with his dry and sarcastic attacks on the A-bomb, racism, pollution, pornography, the military, the Boy Scouts and, of course, mathematics. Cameron Mackintosh and Robin Ray recognized this genius, compiled 28 of Lehrer’s greatest songs and added a linking narrative to produce an evening of humorous delights.

Tickets – $32 for general admission and $12 per student – are available at, by phone at 920.743.1760 or in person at the box office.
