Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
A runaway success in London’s West End, at successive Edinburgh Festivals, at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and right across the USA, this is a hilarious send-up of classical music, which has established Australian pianist, David Scheel, as the successor to the legendary Victor Borge. Beautiful music, and musical fun performed in so many accents/voices that David has also been compared to the late Robin Williams, and Peter Ustinov. Hear a familiar tune played in the styles of the old masters + an i-Pod; two famous pieces played simultaneously, one with the right hand, one with the left, plus his “translation” of the lyrics of Waltzing Matilda, already a comedy classic.
As funny as any, wittier than most, and, uniquely, a concert pianist of international stature...He stands alone, in a class of his own. BBC Arts Review
In the UK David’s work ranged across a broad spectrum, from pantomimes with the likes of Norman Wisdom, to work with the National Theatre, TV series such as Bergerac, plus many TV and radio appearances, principally for the BBC. However, it was when David went solo, combining comedy with classical music, that his career really took off. His best-known show, Don’t Shoot Me, I’m Only the Piano Player, sold out in London’s West End, at 3 consecutive Edinburgh Festivals, picking up a Variety Club of Great Britain award along the way. Hilarious musical satire.
