HYMON & PARFUNKEL

ABOUT THE SHOW:
The fabled, never before seen footage of cult-favorite Hymon & Parfunkel’s unreleased reunion performance on MV1’s StorySingers. Go beyond the lyrics and into the minds of two of the worlds almost greatest musicians. These former friends who have seen the highest of highs and the bedrock of bottom. Watch as they make a mad dash down memory lane, fighting against the past and their own egos to tell their story. They both need the fame. One needs the money. It’s time for An Evening with Hymon and Parfunkel.

ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHTS:
Gregg is very excited to bring Hyman & Parfuncle to life after he and writing partner Louis Pardo premiered songs from the show at the Chance Theater's Chance-a-thon event. Gregg and Louis have been writing together since college and can't wait to share their unique humor with an audience.

Regional: SIDE SHOW (Terry), OKLAHOMA! (Curly), 1776 (Thomas Jefferson), BUDDY: THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY (Buddy), CITY OF ANGELS (Stine), LES MISERABLES (Marius). He’s visited over 50 countries while working on cruise ships and has performed at The Kennedy Center (THE DIVINERS), Hollywood Bowl (CAMELOT, LES MISERABLES), and The Greek Theatre.

Louis Pardo is more anxious than he has ever been to share his first musical with you. Gregg and Louis have been writing together for a long time and have been best friends for longer.
