Tim Mckew is Australia's 21st Century Noel Coward and one of Australia's cabaret legends. Internationally acclaimed from his days as a child star on Australian TV singing with Jamie Refern, Tim has supporting Nick Cave and toured Europe, attracting critical acclaim in London, Berlin, Amsterdam and Shanghai. Tim now brings his latest hit show to the St Kilda Festival - a musical tribute to The Great Noel Coward. In this fabulous show, Madame Arcati conjures Noel Coward back to the Earth Plane as a Blithe Spirit, where he is aghast at what he finds - how culture has devolved since his absence!
"I adore Ruby Ritz and Allison Algonquin, but who is this beastly child Paris Hilton? She is just an irritating Poor little Rich Girl! Big Brother? I say Big Bother! Why George Orwell would turn in his grave!"
This 21st Century Noel showcases many of the classics including Sail Away, Has Anyone Seen Our Ship, Mad Dogs and Englishmen, Mad About The Boy and Mrs Worthington, in a show is linked together with biographical and anecdotal delights! The show has been touring in Australia to packed houses and rave reviews, so be sure not to miss this Naughty, Nautical Romp by The Sea! Piano accompaniment by Peter De RyK. Trumpet by Paul Dooley.
''Wonderful Work, Tim Mckew brings Noel Coward back to life! ''Richard Bonynge.
''Absolutely delightful!'' Dame Elisabeth Murdoch.
