Hello everyone, I have some interesting news for you!
The European Premiere of the off-Broadway musical hit ‘Pete ‘n’ Keely‘ comes to Tristan Bates Theatre this spring! Katie Kerr (‘Little Shop of Horrors‘, Menier Chocolate Factory; ‘Fat Pig‘, Comedy Theatre; ‘Sweeney Todd‘, English National Opera) and David Bardsley (‘Titanic‘, Charing Cross Theatre; ‘Guys and Dolls‘, National Theatre; ‘The Fix‘, Donmar Warehouse) lead this award-winning musical, featuring unforgettable renditions of the era’s popular favourites.
It’s 1968. America’s Swingin’ Sweethearts, Pete Bartel and Keely Stevens, are performing live on national television! The only catch? They haven’t spoken to each other in five years. Through a non-stop parade of song hits from the 50s and 60s – highlighted by elaborately staged flashbacks – Pete and Keely relive the roller coaster ride that got them where they are today… divorced! Pete and Keely have some unfinished business and the tension bubbling beneath the show’s glitzy surface threatens to boil over at any moment in a confrontation that will definitely not be ready for prime time.
As the inevitable blow-up gets closer, the songs become increasingly double- edged. History repeats itself, live and in full colour, as Pete and Keely head towards a conclusion that’s at once uproariously funny and surprisingly touching.
