The Phoenix Theatre of Indianapolis announces the return of Dos Fallopia starring Lisa Koch and Peggy Platt.  Opening June 13, 2013, this show can be seen on the Livia and Steve Russell Stage at the Phoenix through July 14, 2013. Titled Dos Fallopia: Spudd Potion No. 9, this show features sketches such as “All in the Family Feud” and “The Spudds: Big Valley of the Dolls.”

Performing together since 1990, Lisa Koch and Peggy Platt have logged 19 holiday ventures together, more than 25 full-length shows, and countless international dates. They have toured their sold-out stage shows, Twin Sisters of Different Cul-de-sacs, Pretty Girls, Not Too Bright, and Desperate Spuddwives in theaters in London, New York, San Francisco, LA, Chicago, Seattle, Minneapolis, and in Indianapolis at the Phoenix.

“We’ve missed them!” says Phoenix Producing Director Bryan Fonseca about the hilarious comedy sketch duo coming back to the Phoenix. “This year, Lisa and Peggy are bringing in Phoenix favorites to perform: Kevin D. Smith (also Music Director) and Deb Shaver.”

The last time Dos Fallopia performed in Indianapolis, the critics agreed that this duo is something special. NUVO wrote “…you’ll never know how hilariously funny they are until you see Lisa Koch and Peggy Platt in person… (they have) impeccable comic timing combined with amazing skill at writing comedy and lyrics.” The Indianapolis Star wrote “Ingenious, outrageous and hilarious… like the best of Saturday Night Live combined with the comic genius of Jonathan Winters. Koch and Platt are funny. They could read the Yellow Pages and I’d laugh.”
