The Boxed Set (Tiffany Theatre, West Hollywood: 99 seats; $48.50 top; 1:10)<P>Julio Martinez<P>HOLLYWOOD (Variety) - If there is an art to marshalling one's facial and body parts to move in coordination with a pre-recorded soundtrack, then John Epperson has taken it to its zenith.<P>In a flawless display of virtuoso timing and physical agility, Epperson seques effortlessly through a sometimes hilarious, often harrowing homage to the legendary divas of stage and screen. However, once he has established his jaundiced, surrealistic course for the evening, there simply is not enough variation on his theme to warrant his 70 minutes on stage. Director Kevin Malony certainly keeps this inventive solo artist on track but should have advised on more judicious editing.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/nm/20010518/en/review-stagelypsinka_1.html" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>

In a nostalgic aside, I worked for a ballet company in the South at which John Epperson (pre-Lypsynka) was a rehearsal and class pianist - and absolutely brilliant at it.<P>I believe he went from there to New York (perhaps ABT) for a few seasons before pursuing his other interests.

I don't know who this Lypsynka is, but he/she doesn't half look like Joanna Lumley in Absolutely Fabulous...

John Epperson aka Lypsinka, has talked about his time as a rehearsal accompanist for Ballet Theatre alot. He's absolutely brilliant as Lypsinka. One of the best shows I've seen.<BR>D
