The classic comic songs of satirists Flanders and Swann will be brought back to life by Sydney’s own double Logie Award-winning TV compere Andrew O’Keefe (Deal or No Deal, Weekend Sunrise) and Mr Showmanship himself, Glenn Amer at Glen Street Theatre for two special performances only.
In the 1950’s and 60’s, the most sophisticated musical duo in England were Michael Flanders and Donald Swann in their internationally acclaimed revue At the Drop of a Hat that ran for over two years on London’s West End and At the Drop of Another Hat played for almost as long. In 1964, Flanders and Swann came to Australia and enjoyed a sell-out season at Sydney’s Theatre Royal.
Director and deviser Melvyn Morrow says “Flanders and Swann were the end of a certain kind of English witty revue before people like Peter Cook and Dudley Moore did Beyond the Fringe. And although they are satirical, their approach is not so much one of savagery as amused observation.”
