"Lies in the Attic," a new musical that tells the tale of a father and son through a repertoire of Beatles songs, will play in Dublin Sunday afternoon, produced by Pleasanton resident Randy Haykin.
He and fellow producer David Cowan, both venture capitalists and members of the male a cappella group Voices in Harmony, conceived of a script using the music and lyrics of Beatles hits. They were inspired by their experiences as parents as well as their love of the music, recognizing that it would resonate across generations.
"Lies in the Attic" tells the story of Randall Judick, a suburban father struggling to communicate with Sam, his troubled teenage son. Randall learns that honesty is a two-way street when his "ghosts in the attic" unleash memories of his own turbulent youth. The ghosts, played by the 40-member Voices in Harmony, remind Randall and Sam that when broken-hearted people living in the world agree, there will be an answer.
The show opened last weekend in Santa Clara and will play tomorrow at De Anza College. The local performance is at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Dublin High School Performing Arts Center, 8151 Village Parkway. Tickets are $32-$37, available at www.wesingbeatles.com.
