Preserving the old magic
with a 21st Century twist
As only Tim Mckew can
By SHIRLEY BROUN
Top Australian cabaret performer Tim Mckew is set to open his acclaimed Noel Coward show in America’s Big Apple of New York this Saturday, May 24.
The show `Tim Mckew Toasts Noel Coward’ is a celebration of Coward’s musical genius, wit and elegance. “Although much of Coward’s material was written back in the 20s, 30s and 40s, it is still as fresh and resonant today,” said Tim who is fast gaining the tag of Australia’s Noel Coward.
Tim will present some of Coward’s most loved songs strung together with biographical and anecdotal delights including the classic witty numbers of `Mad Dogs and Englishmen’ and `Mrs Worthingon’. He also includes haunting lyrical ballads such as `21 Century Blues’ and `Someday I’ll Find You’.
The Aussie entertainer who began his career as a young singer on Brian and the Juniors and emerged as one of the country’s most respected cabaret and jazz artists, said his latest show has a strong 21st Century twist. “Coward was always up to the minute on the issues of his day and I present these confident I am working within the Coward spirit. I hope audiences think so too,” said Tim.
World acclaimed Australian conductor and pianist Richard Bonynge described his performance as “Wonderful work. Tim Mckew brings Noel Coward back to life!”
