    The Fabulous Lipitones 
    by John Markus & Mark St. Germain
    Choreographed by Michael Lichtefeld
    Directed by Michael Mastro with Donald Corren, Wally Dunn, Rohan Kymal and Jim Walton
    November 18th – December 14th
    What happens when a barbershop quartet loses a key member to a heart-stopping high "B flat?" The three surviving members suddenly find themselves scrambling to find a tenor before the national competition. When the golden tones of "Bob" are heard through the phone, the Lipitones are all ears...but when they meet him in person, he's not quite what they expected. An uproarious comedy of misunderstanding, sterotypes and the path to perfect harmony. Tickets starting at $28 now available as well as flexible, affordable admission packages. For further information, contact the George Street Playhouse Box Office at 732-246-7717.
