The Pianist: A Concert Catastrophe At The York Theatre October 25 – November 6

20 Oct

pianist-4_credit-heli-sorjonenOne hears the term ‘pianist’ and you may think classical music, some tinkling of the ivories, well this is no ordinary piano performance. The Pianist is a mix of clowning mixed with contemporary circus along with catastrophic comedy. Add to that this all takes place in, around and under or maybe on a grand piano. The Pianist we hear glides through an impeccable high society performance which is being touted as utter ‘perfection’  This show is an all ages performance with tickets available for children (aged 18 years and under) for $20. Family packs are also available family packs available for $120 (for 2 adults and 2 children).  The show opens Tuesday, October 25th at 7:00 pm and runs till November 6 with several matinees on October 29, 30 and November 6. Tickets are available from The Cultch.  

Here’s what people are saying about The Pianist:

“It would be no exaggeration to declare Thomas Monckton nothing short
of a genius… Imaginative, inventive, and immaculately performed,
this is clowning at its best.”
Broadway Baby

“Sensational, brilliant, absolutely amazing” 
Taranaki Daily News

“Something special… his ability to hold our attention and make us laugh
is a master class in clowning.” 
The Scotsman

“Amazing performance. Physical comedy at its best.”
