Lory Lazarus's new musical plays at the Lion Theatre at Theatre Row.
Attack of the Elvis Impersonators is currently in performances at Theatre Row's Lion Theatre. With book, music, and lyrics by Lory Lazarus, the new musical is directed by Broadway veteran Don Stephenson. Opening night is set for June 15.
In Attack of the Elvis Impersonators, the soul of Elvis returns to Earth and inhabits the body of the most famous rock star in history. He instructs his disciples that to bring peace to the planet we must all unite as one — and to do that the entire human race must impersonate Elvis.
