George Hillier - Richmond & Twickenham Times

September 1999 

A most enjoyable two hours were spent by anyone who attended BROS TCs’ latest musical offering Tomfoolery, a compilation by Cameron Macintosh and Robin Ray of the music and lyrics of Tom Lehrer.

The evening was introduced by Andy Yeats who to my ear sounded very much like Tom Lehrer himself. In his prologue he told us that we would be given a tour of the works of Mr Lehrer, a professor of mathematics at Harvard who deserted the world of academia during the 50’s and 60’s with his particular brand of wry humour. He only returned to University life when he felt he had no more to say.

There were no stars since all the players performed equally well. However, a particular word of praise must go to Musical Director Terry Saunders who not only directed the excellent band (though at times it was somewhat in danger of eclipsing the singers), but also pulled off a wonderful rendition of a song about the elements and furthermore transformed them to a list of underground stations in the manner of a Gilbert & Sullivan aria.
