maker Conrad Ticklebottom’s life has hit a block. Once, Conrad and his
purple box ignited an entire movement in art and design, but now he
finds himself alone, forgotten and teetering on ruin. The holidays bring
three magical figures to his door – a trio of Liza Minnellis to escort
him on a fabulous journey through what-was, what-could-be and
what-the-f*?!, redeeming his lost promise and re-inventing a brand-new
Conrad Ticklebottom.  It’s a quirky holiday musical tale of hope,
transformation… and the power of Liza!


back and she’s better than ever! After having played to sold-out
audiences in 2012 at the Steppenwolf Garage and in concert at Joe’s Pub
in New York this summer, I’m thrilled to bring back this hilarious and
moving holiday musical,” comments About Face Artistic Director Andrew
Volkoff. “In this year of development at About Face, we are proud to
support the continued growth of this project and the artists who’ve
created it.  Artistic Associate Scott Bradley and composer Alan
Schmuckler have developed a sensational new book and score and we’re
delighted to share it with Chicago audiences.  If you missed it last
year, get your tickets now: it’s bound to sell out again this year!  And
if you saw it last year, you’ve got to see this fantastic new version
and make We Three Lizas your new holiday tradition!” adds Volkoff.
