Manny and Andy Lube: The Experience Jack Turner Productions
While LUBE has not yet had its World Premiere (check Events and Breaking News for more info on that exciting event), it has had several acts read at local Playwright groups -- with resounding success, I might add. The Creative Team has also filmed an entire act (Scene 6 -- At the Movies), from which three music videos were extracted.
Lube: Scene 6
LUBE had it's first staged reading at the LGBT Center in San Diego in 2016. For that, all of the music was recorded. Below, you'll find three 'Staged' videos and two "Unplugged" videos. Together, they give a pretty good representation of what the final show will look and sound like: minus the production values we hope to include in the World Premiere, of course.

Other Sounds
Below you can listen to all of the music from Lube (except for the quick rap, "Lust Is An Often Censored Thing," which has not yet been recorded). Quality varies greatly, as most of the songs were recorded for the first staged reading held in 2016 -- either rehearsal recordings or artist renditions. Due to time and budget constraints, getting optimal recordings for every song was a challenge. We hope to find a band to record all the instrumentals and get professional, studio-quality songs in the near future. Stay tuned!! If you know any band or orchestra that might be interested, let us know!! If we get them onboard, you'll get a reward.

Please enjoy the spectrum of the wonderful music composed by Brandon Bowerman, with lyrics by Jack Turner, that is the essence of the experience called "Lube: A Modern Love Story."
