Crooners comes to Leeds with a brand new comedy musical that brings the British song and dance man back to the main theatre stage.
This comedy musical is a collaboration between comedy writer and performer, Roman Marek, and one of the UK’s most prolific modern swing bands The Mini Big Band. They are on a mission to lead a return to the British Variety shows of the past and celebrate this very British genre.
The show features music of the Rat Pack singers Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, as well as Tony Bennett, Bobby Darin and Britain’s very own crooner, Matt Monro, with a set list of material never before heard in a theatre production.
“We wanted a show that makes British audiences laugh out loud. An all-singing, all-dancing musical comedy the likes of Morecambe and Wise,” says band leader Jon Hibbard, “it’s original, has a swinging big band, and brings variety back to the theatre.”
The show includes the fully live on stage musicianship of the 10-piece modern swing band The Mini Big Band. This is going to be a Truly British Swingin’ Affair.
