Ahead of the premiere of their new musical, We Live in Cairo at the American Repertory Theater this May, brothers, songwriters, and collaborators, Daniel and Patrick present a new monthly series, Lazour Light Show. Beginning Monday, November 12, their show will play the second Monday of every month. Previous shows took place at the legendary Cornelia Street Café. 2019 show locations will be announced shortly.
Together as a team, Daniel and Patrick have written seven musicals and several hundred songs. A new take on the troubadour tradition, once a month they take the stage Underground at the Cornelia Street Café (29 Cornelia Street) to present Lazour Light Show, an evening of songs and stories, featuring excerpts from their shows, stand-alone pieces, and new works in development, with the possibility of special guests aiding them in song.
The Fabulous Invalid
The Fabulous Invalid is a brand-new Broadway-centric podcast hosted by theater stalwart Jamie Du Mont, Lucille Lortel Award winner Leslie Kritzer, writer and theater critic Rob Russo, and Tony Award nominee Jennifer Simard.
On a weekly basis, the group digs deep into the minds of the most creative, brilliant, out-there, and passionate theater professionals on the planet. Their guests won’t tell us how they do what they do; they’ll tell us why they do it. Pull up a chair and join them as they gossip a bit, banter about all the latest news, and get up-close with the most prominent players currently working in the theater – from actors to producers, and stage managers to critics. Together, they’ll share their love for The Great White Way, or as it has long been known, “the fabulous invalid”.
