Four-time Grammy Award-nominated vocal quintet Beethoven’s Wig sings witty and very funny lyrics set to masterpieces of classical music. The show stars lyricist and lead singer Richard Perlmutter, who has drawn comparisons to Victor Borge, Tom Lehrer and Danny Kaye for his quick wit, songwriting genius, and vocal gymnastics. Beethoven’s Wig has been praised as one of the best introductions to classical music for children and families. It is also a show that sophisticated classical music and comedy fans of all ages will love.
