CYRENS - the swingin' songbook of Cy Coleman

  • Chapel off Chapel 12 Little Chapel Street Prahran, VIC, 3181 Australia (map)

Melbourne Cabaret Festival - Chapel off Chapel - Theatre

Tuesday June 27, Friday June 30, Saturday July 1 - 8.30 pm Tickets $29-39 available here

A musical revue celebrating the legendary Broadway composer and jazzman Cy Coleman, known for shows such as Sweet Charity, Barnum, On the Twentieth Century, The Life and City of Angels, but his musical roots were in the jazz world. He was definitely the coolest cat on Broadway!

Cy Coleman’s songs are known for their sophistication and wit. Amanda Harrison ('Wicked'), Chelsea Gibb ('Chicago' and 'Cabaret') and Melissa Langton ('The Fabulous Singlettes') are also known for their sophistication and wit – but more for singing loud and high and knowing how to sing the hell out of a song!

Cyrens is performed with a four piece band, some dangerously close three part harmony, arrangements by Mark Jones and a few jokes and a dash of Bob Fosse., feat. Tamara Murphy bass and Sonja Horbelt drums.
