Can’t sing, can’t act, slightly balding, can dance a little’
A Fine Romance: The Magic of Fred Astaire is an all singing, all dancing tribute to the man who went on to become the most famous dancer of all times.
Bringing back the old world glamour and charm with plenty of toe-tapping tunes and re-creations of the legendary dance routines of the era, A Fine Romance takes the audience from Fred’s humble beginnings on Broadway, all the way to his Hollywood days and on screen romances with his many leading ladies, including Ginger Rogers, Judy Garland, Audrey Hepburn and Rita Hayworth.
Introducing two of Australia’s up and coming musical theatre talents, Joe Meldrum and Imogen Moore accompanied by Ben Taylor on piano, be dazzled by the costumes, be enthralled by the songs, the glitz, the extraordinary dancing and of course, the music- and along the way hear stories about Fred and his life on stage. This show has something for everyone and you will leave humming a few tunes, maybe dancing a few steps but certainly with a smile on your face.
Songs include: The Way You Look Tonight, They Can’t Take That Away From Me, Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off, Cheek to Cheek, Puttin on the Ritz, Top Hat, That’s Entertainment, S Wonderful, Night and Day and many more.
