With book and lyrics by Scott Bradley (Scooty) and music (and additional lyrics) by Alan Schmuckler, We Three Lizas is a musical fairy tale in which an embittered artist’s mid-life crisis leads to divine intervention by Liza Minnelli. And Liza Minnelli. And Liza Minnelli.
With a brand new book and expanded score, We Three Lizas reappeared in Chicago for holiday season 2013. Produced by About Face Theatre at Stage 773, We Three Lizas ran November 27th, 2013, to January 5th, 2014, under the direction of Scott Ferguson, with choreography by Patrick Andrews and musical direction by Aaron Benham.
On July 15th, 2013, We Three Lizas appeared in concert at New York City’s Joe’s Pub at The Public Theatre, produced by About Face Theatre in association with John Sanders, under the direction of Devanand Janki. Next Magazine covered the concert – read the article.

While not a Scooty & JoJo Show, it IS a Scooty show with his musical partner Alan Schmuckler. JoJo, as his alter-ego Jonny Stax, produced the 2013 Joe’s Pub concert as Executive Director for About Face Theatre.
We Three Lizas critical acclaim includes:
“About Face Theatre’s WE 3 LIZA’S Is A Fantastic Holiday Survival Guide. Move over Christmas Carol; step aside It’s A Wonderful Life (radio version or other), a new original holiday classic is born and it is the most fun you will have at a show this season…The original score composed for We 3 Liza’s is very smart and melodic. Alan Schmuckler’s music (and additional lyrics) coupled with Mr. Bradley’s use of the narrative is a perfect collaboration using jazz, standards and gritty showtune ballads. It is by far one of the most creative scores written for any new work this season.” – Showbiz Chicago
“This gender-bending show from About Face Theatre Company is the holiday musical comedy of my dreams. The script by Scott Bradley…is hilarious but also more sophisticated than you might expect. The music by Alan Schmuckler…is perfect for the edgy, sexy, fun story line, in which all hell breaks loose when a bitter design-house owner attempts to conjure up a Christmas wish and three versions of Liza Minnelli arrive instead.” – Chicago Reader “Culture Vulture”
