Synopsis

In concerts, television appearances and a series of now-classic recordings, the Harvard-educated math professor Tom Lehrer delighted millions of fans during the 1950s and ’60s with his dry, cynical but good-humored attacks on the A-bomb, racism, pollution, pornography, the military, the boy scouts and, of course, mathematics. Nothing is sacred in this hysterical revue featuring many of Lehrer’s greatest songs. *Cast members use their own names.
