Hang ups – funny one act musicals



What happens when you have a telemarketing room with a bunch of misfits, managed by someone who is apathetic and is owned by an ex con? You have “Hang Ups”. When the owner threatens to fire everyone and replace the manager with his best employee, panic starts to set in. With a cast of characters including a wannabe standup comedian, a sweet but elderly senior whose best days have long since past, an egomaniac and a hair dresser in training, Martin, the manager, has to turn things around- and FAST! With such catchy songs as “Motivate ‘Em”, “A Chopped Liver Sandwhich”, “Invisible Woman” and of course, “Hang Ups” (written by Hartley Mandel and Dee Long- formerly of Klaatu), “Hang Ups” is a musical comedy that will keep audiences listening!
