Look out Jo’Burg! Multi-award winning theatre star Jonathan Roxmouth is back with his new piano show, CALL ME LEE!
Following the success of A HANDFUL OF KEYS, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and most recently, SUNSET BOULEVARD, Roxmouth pays tribute to Mr. Showmanship - Liberace - "Lee" to his friends - in this concert biography with lighting by Denis Hutchison and direction by Ian von Memerty.In CALL ME LEE, Roxmouth traces the journey of the man who became Liberace through the well-known classics that made him a showbiz icon and popular pianist for more than 40 years. Everything from the Boogie Woogie to the Beer Barrel Polka, Tchaikovsky to Chopin and of course nostalgic hits like "I'll Be Seeing You" and "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows" make up a selection of music that guarantees something for everyone. CALL ME LEE also features some of the most lavish, glittering costumes seen on the Montecasino stage by award-winning designer Lena Olivier worthy of the memory of Mr. Showmanship. Music. Glitter. Laughter. What more do you need for a great night out at the theatre?
