In a zany madcap musical comedy featuring three pianos (you only need to provide one piano), four hands and countless sheet music, The Two Piano Men celebrate the great piano composers of today and yesteryear in their latest show, We Love a Piano – From Bach to Broadway and Beyond.
Hear fabulous show tunes, familiar classical music and even a few pop songs as The Two Piano Men put their comical twist on everything from the old masters to pop piano players.
Starring international composer, multi Green Room Award nominee and Green Room Award Winner Shanon Whitelock, whose musical compositions in film and theatre have been performed in New York, UK, Germany, China, New Zealand, Australia and the Cannes Film Festival, together with Matthew Hadgraft, one of Australia’s finest Cabaret entertainers, you will not believe what these two can do with a piano or two or three.
Featuring music like The Minute Waltz (can it actually be played in a minute?), Flight of the Bumble Bee, Chopsticks, The William Tell Overture aka The Lone Ranger, Rhapsody in Blue and many more. There is even a fight played out on the three pianos between the Sharks and the Jets from West Side Story, a fantastic classical musical mashup that has to be seen to be believed and just how many songs can the guys sing that only contain 4 chords.
With a touch of classic Victor Borge, Shanon and Matt are the “Abbott and Costello or the Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis” of piano performers, no-one and no piano is immune from the antics of these crazy guys.
We Love A Piano is a snazzy double act that is a perfect blend of music, madness, mayhem and merriment and that’s just in the first 5 minutes!
