John Bell & Simon Tedeschi - Echoes of The Jazz Age
Bell is one of Australian theatre’s most illustrious figures, having played a role in the development of our nation’s rich artistic culture as an actor and director, and founder of Bell Shakespeare. Tedeschi is one of the most acclaimed and sought-after pianists in Australia, known equally for his performances of Schumann, Grieg and Mussorgsky as his Gershwin and jazz collaborations.
Held together by Scott Fitzgerald’s famous essay Echoes of the Jazz Age, the programme includes snippets of T.S. Eliot, Groucho Marx, Mae West, W.C Fields and Dorothy Parker along with the music of George Gershwin, Fats Waller, and Jelly Roll Morton.
Immerse yourself in the atmosphere and enjoy a 1920s themed cocktail from the bar before the performance, and stay back for a Q & A and a chance to meet the artists after the show.
Dazzling music, a touch of gravitas and just a whiff of nostalgia… a tantalising trip back in time with John Bell and Simon Tedeschi – plus the brilliant Blazey Best.
Standard $60 | Concession $55 | Under 30’s $30
