I've been doing the Fringe thing for the past couple years, and Lost Moon Radio is probably the one act I plan my whole schedule around. This year's show Million Dollar Hair might be tied for my favorite thing I've seen them do. I really like their usual freeform radio format, but a tribute concert was right up their alley. It's kind of crazy how they just deliver song after song after song that's both super catchy and super funny. I saw another review comparing Lost Moon to Weird Al, but I think they go beyond what he does. He changes lyrics to popular songs and is always playing himself. Lost Moon creates the whole thing from scratch, from music to lyrics to characters. You can guess who they are parodying, but it's also something b... full review

Lost Moon Radio has done it again! This time they take the audience through the life and times of a music producer, touching on several musical trends throughout the decades with their adept and hilarious original songs. You can never go wrong seeing one of their shows, and "Million Dollar Hair" is no exception.... full review

I have to agree with Jason Rohrer's review at Stage and Cinema on this one (http://www.stageandcinema.com/2014/06/13/million-dollar-hair-lost-moon/). I am a HUGE fan of Lost Moon Radio, trumpeting about the inventive troupe for years. For “Million Dollar Hair,” the actors, the characterizations, the band, the lighting, the production: all were amazing. And no doubt there were some guffaw-inducing moments. But I found myself itching to get out of the theater. Why? The songs – the main element of the show – wore out their welcome almost immediately. There were some good riffs, but the lyrics were clunky, one-note, and sorely unsophisticated. Even the written dialogue was mostly juvenile and simply not funny. And with no individual sketches to ... full review

A hilarious rundown of three decades of popular music. It was so much fun to see how the cast and band would tackle styles like chick folk, arena rock, hip hop girl groups, and alternative angry women from the '90s. Also lots of funny random stuff like a lounge singer and a weirdo European collective. All put together by a fictional record producer who's like a mashup of Clive Davis and Donald Trump. The funniest hour of your week. See it!... full review

This is my 3rd time seeing a Lost Moon Radio Show. I appreciate how ORIGINAL each show is. How they take The time to always craft brand new brilliance. For this show, the way the different musical genres were incorporated into this dead dude's tribute gave us a chance to see them do what they do best. AWESOME singing and written lyrics. Unexpected callbacks and hilarious characters w unique personas. They just make me wanna quit my jobless job and join the circus! Or them! -rasika mathur... full review

Such fun! Clever songs performed by a talented cast, all beautifully tied together by a hilariously confused January Schonfeld, with a sweet/awesome ending. Go see!!... full review

I swear I heard the applause of the ghosts of the producers of Lawrence Welk and Solid Gold. Lost Moon Radio was a mega-show, really a $50-ticket type event. Huge, not to be missed. The only problem is songs like "Staycation" and "Philological" won't leave your head. And that's a pretty good thing.... full review

I've been a Lost Moon Radio fanboy since I first heard "Whites Only Fountain" with Ben Hill from the light booth at The Theatre of the Arts Arena Stage at the inaugural Fringe Festival in 2010, and I've made an effort to see every LMR show I can since then. Million Dollar Hair departs from the crew's usual format, but this incarnation provides a bevy of new, eccentric and fun characters for the Lost Moon universe, as well as bringing back a few old favorites. Lauren Flans once again demonstrates why she is not only one of the hottest undiscovered rappers in the game today, but a comic genius as well. Her song, "Babies Havin' Babies" is perhaps one of the most brilliant pieces of musical sketch I've seen. Right in the vein of Chaplain, S... full review
