Revered actor and director John Bell and renowned pianist Simon Tedeschi are two of Australia’s best-loved artists. In their third remarkable collaboration, they present a magical, entertaining show to take audiences back to the brilliance and bedazzlement of the Jazz Age.
Centred around F. Scott Fitzgerald’s essay Echoes of the Jazz Age, with sizzling quotes from Mae West, Groucho Marx, Sam Goldwyn and Dorothy Parker, and poetry by T.S Eliot, the performance features the irresistible piano music of Scott Joplin, Louis Armstrong and James P Johnson, and songs by George Gershwin, Jay Gorney and Fats Waller. A special guest to be announced.
