Description

And on the 366th Day, a once in every four years affair, spotlights the musical and lyrical prowess of Jack and Benny Lipson, aka. jackbenny, Los Angeles-native twin composers, songsters and multi-instrumentalists who inject the craft of musical theater into a spectrum of sonic worlds. Heralded as “a testament to their generation,” their progressive and fresh harmonic language informed by classical and jazz roots complements their savvy lyrics that tackle myriad contemporary social and cultural phenomena, from queer identity and consensual conduct to health care bureaucracy. In a comedic and colorful exhibition of provocative originals with a healthy heaping of sibling shtick, the Lipsons guide audiences on a candid tour through the delicate, well-curated millennial mind. 

Jack and Benny have supported such luminaries as Idina Menzel, Josh Groban, Herbie Hancock, and Barry Manilow, and they serve as house band for both Jonnie Reinhart’s Revolver Revue and A Queer Cabaret, where they’ve collaborated with artists including Darren Criss and Michael Arden. The Lipsons are developing "Brainstorm," a three-character song cycle of their material.
