The tuxedoed love child of Rik Mayall and Mr Bean, NZ’s international circus star Thomas Monckton uses his gangly limbs and wild mop to jaw-dropping effect create a charming piece of comedy for the whole family about the lure of luxury in The Pianist.
This inventive and hilarious work unravels on, in, under and around one of the most magnificent instruments of all time – the grand piano. Poised, immaculate, and dressed to impress, Monckton’s Pianist is all set for an elegant recital …until his piano rebels and all hell breaks loose. Desperately frazzled, Monckton will swing from the chandelier, chase down his spotlight, juggle sheet music, scramble on, slide under, leap over and battle with his magnificent nemesis.
The Pianist is an exciting new collaboration by New Zealander Thomas Monckton and Finnish company Circo Aereo, a one man circus show about a spectacularly funny catastrophe that’s perfect for the whole family.
Thomas Monckton is a comic genius. Miss him at your peril. – The Dominion Post
Everything that could go wrong does go wrong and it’s wonderful. - Broadway Baby (UK)
Amazingly physical jaw-droppingly wonderful - Theatreview
There is a fundraiser for Dunedin schools attached to this show for tickets purchased from the Regent Box Office or by phone – if you would like to know more, please call the Regent Theatre on 477 8597 or visit the Box Office.
