Barbershopera was created in 2007 by writers, performers and reformed Barbershop singers Rob Castell and Tom Sadler. This year the company are bringing their fourth full-length a capella comedy musical to the Edinburgh Fringe: The Three Musketeers, and will be recording another BBC Radio 4 afternoon play which will air in the winter.

Then it will be unfashionable again, and the whole process repeats until the end of time.
