For decades, Peter Schickele has kept audiences rolling in the aisles with his rib-tickling presentations of the alleged music of P.D.Q. Bach, classical music’s answer to the Marx Brothers.  He has appeared with symphonic ensembles ranging from community and college orchestras to the principal orchestras of Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angeles, among many others. 

The following five shows are available.  In most shows this season the Professor is accompanied by his stalwart co-conspirators Michèle Eaton (off-coloratura soprano) and Brian Dougherty (tenor profundo), along with stalwart stage manager William Walters

P.D.Q. Bach:  The “What’s Your Sign?” Tour (without orchestra)
P.D.Q. Bach:  An Evening of Musical Mayhem (with orchestra)
P.D.Q. Bach:  The Vegas Years (with orchestra)
P.D.Q. Bach Strikes Back (with orchestra)
P.D.Q. Bach & Peter Schickele:  The Jekyll and Hyde Tour (without orchestra)
