New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Twin brothers Jack and Benny Lipson, aka the critically acclaimed jackbenny, will make their Triad
Theater debut on Sunday, August 19, at 7pm. Special guests will be featured.
Happiness is Trending spotlights the musical prowess of Jack and Benny Lipson, aka jackbenny, Los Angeles-native twin composers and multi-instrumentalists who inject musical theatre storytelling into the gamut of artistic styles. Heralded as, "sensational, clever, and astute," their progressive and fresh harmonic language informed by jazz and classical roots complements their progressive, savvy lyrics that explore queer identity, consent, climate change, and myriad other contemporary social/cultural phenomena. In two acts of iconically provocative originals, uniquely arranged covers, and their signature sibling shtick, jackbenny guides audiences on a candid tour through the fragile, well-curated millennial mind.
The Lipson brothers shared their debut show in 2016 with musician-comedian Reggie Watts, and have since played sold-out concerts in Los Angeles, New York, and in Sheridan, Wyoming, where they presented their 'musicalette' Miranda, Please! through the Wyoming Theater Festival, and even in Falam, Myanmar at the Chin Cultural Festival. In November 2017, Lifetime commissioned Jack and Benny to arrange Burton Lane and Ralph Freed's "How About You," which was featured in the holiday special Snowed Inn Christmas with Bethany Joy Lenz. The Lipsons are developing The Brainstorm, a three-character musical theatre song cycle of jackbenny originals scheduled to be unveiled in September
at LA's Rockwell Table and Stage.
