Ian von Memerty makes a welcome return, returns to the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre with his latest musical-comedy offering, Keyboard Killers, for five performances only, from November 9 to 13.
South Africa`s ‘King of the Keyboard’ will be performing songs by eight of the greatest song-writing piano-stars in the world – Stevie Wonder, Noel Coward, John Legend, Irving Berlin, Freddy Mercury, Fats Waller, Cole Porter and Billy Joel.
It is an electrifying collection of talent and unparalleled musical legacy, which includes the drama of Bohemian Rhapsody; the swinging cool of I Get A Kick out Of You; the wicked wit of Don’t Put Your Daughter On the Stage Mrs Worthington; the romance of Ordinary People; the showbiz razzle-dazzle of Puttin’ On the Ritz; the groove and joy of Isn’t She Lovely; and the toe – tapping stride of Ain’t Misbehaving.
Von Memerty is accompanied by two superb musicians, Andrew Warneke on double bass, and Bronwen Clacherty on percussion. The production also boasts magnificent lighting by David Limbert, sets by Mark Farrow and costumes by Morne van Der Schyff.
Durban is the final stop on a national tour which has played to capacity audiences and wonderful reaction.
Tickets range from R130 toR150 (with special discounts for block bookings and pensioners). There are two matinees on November 12 and 13 with pensioners’ discounts. Booking is through Computicket.
