"What happens when a funny person becomes a provocateur? You find yourself a little stunned at the things you're laughing at, then you look for other people to laugh with you."
-Austin Chronicle

Take a look though an ordinary peephole and discover a full evening of songs by Austin's great novelty songwriter Dick Price. This marks the first time most of these songs have been performed by anyone except Dick himself. Spanning over three decades of songwriting, this living room cabaret includes such twisted ditties as "Knife and Fork," "Father Sambuco," "Happy Dinosaur," and "I Know Who You Are, I Saw What You Did."  It's an intimate, irreverent, and long overdue tribute to one man's musical madness.

About Dick Price
Dick Price has written over a thousand songs. He began composing music at the age of six, won first place in a state composition contest at age 12, and perfected his uniquely witty style in his late twenties. After attending the University of Texas and then living in New York City for a spell, Dick returned to Austin and launched the popular Dial-A-Tune service. Dick's songs have been heard worldwide on the Dr. Demento radio show and on many a mix tape passed between friends. With Rubber Repertory, he created the award-winning shows At Home with Dick and At Home with Dick 2.  

About Lyova Rosanoff
Lyova Rosanoff was raised in New York City in a family of professional cellists. After graduating from Vassar, she accepted a job with the San Antonio Symphony and has made her home in Texas ever since. She has taught at San Antonio College and the University of Texas at Austin and was one of the founding members of Esther's Follies, where she served as Musical Director for 28 years. Elected to the Austin Arts Hall of Fame in 2003, she went on to co-write a humorous, Texas-tinged version of "Die Fleidermaus," which premiered in 2008 at The Long Center.
