Following packed houses in Margate last year, Gordon Clarkson productions will be bringing popular show ‘I’ve Got Gershwin’ to the Sarah Thorne Theatre in Broadstairs for a special Sunday Matinee on March 5.
Billed as a ‘slick, sophisticated theatre show featuring popular songs from The Great American Songbook’, it is performed by Gordon along with talented colleagues Stacy Golding, Frank Tucker and Alice Underdown with superb live music supplied by Paul Stewart on Piano and Steve Nicholls on Percussion.
Among the composers featured will be Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Harry Warren and Al Dubin and Gershwin.
In addition to songs such as ‘They can’t take that away from me’, ‘Summertime’, ‘Mack the Knife’, ‘At Last’, ‘You’re the Top’ and ‘Let there be Love’, the song with the longest title ever written : ‘How could you believe me when I said I loved you when you know I’ve been a liar all my life’ will be featured.
The show is designed very much in the style of a 1950’s night Club, so the guys stay in smart tuxedos throughout, whilst the ladies have complete costume changes with every entrance, creating a bit of ‘old school’ glamour.
Doors open at 2pm for curtain up at 2.30pm, and the show concludes by 5pm.
Tickets are £14 in advance, and £16 on the door, and can be booked by calling the Box Office on 0333 666 44 66, or online at : www.sarahthornetheatre.co.uk.
Gordon always put on good old-fashioned family entertainment at the Winter Gardens. I guess that doesn’t fit in with the town’s pretentious image anymore.
i think you are on to something thier , now if he had a paintbrush
Excellent news. Was here last year, packer audiences, well crafted songs always go down well with any generation and the facts it’s a show that’s been put on over multiple years in Thanet means that it must be perfect for the local crowd.
I’m sure some idiot will claim “it doesn’t fit with the towns image” even though clearly as it’s here and sold out last year it does.
Some people try to create a narrative over anything and ignore facts.
Did you actually read the whole article, or was that a bit too much for your brain to cope with? It has been moved from Margate to Broadstairs.
Did you read my comment…. I said Thanet…
As usual you so your true ignorance and stupidity.
Still “not reading” my comments then?
Your Leasure told Gordon the management and the father and son due simon and Simon’s who’ve been performing as long as Gordon we don’t want that kind of entertainment anymore what an insult that’s when they had the 100 years dinner at the wintergardens Mr Simon’s senior was king rat at the time.
The Winter Gardens closing down didn’t exactly help matters!
