A HANDFUL OF KEYS (article first published : 2008-06-4)

A Handful of Keys, the hilarious two-man piano show conceived and originally performed by Ian von Memerty and Bryan Schimmel, returns with all of its evergreen appeal intact along with some dazzling new material.

Thanks to countless requests, South Africa’s most successful two hander revue is back. Don’t miss this phenomenon - seen by more than 250,000 people, in more than 750 performances on three continents.

Roelof Colyn “the witty, urbane, master of comic timing” - had the press eating out of his hand and thrilled audiences with his ‘musical mastery and goofy charm’. He is joined by the extraordinarily talented newcomer, Jonathan Roxmouth, who has been igniting stages around the country with his performances as Amadeus “a totally unique pianistic madman’, Buddy “an assured, powerful, versatile talent’ and Vince Fontaine “a born show-stealer- truly outstanding”.

Two men at two grand pianos give a dazzling display of pianistic virtuosity and hilarious impersonation. A performance of constant surprise, intelligence and wit, and music that ranges from the great classic masters of Bach and Beethoven, through the kings of soul Ray Charles and Fats Waller, via the queens of show biz and pop Elton John, Freddy Mercury and Liberace – A Handful of Keys is a completely South African product of international standard.

Presented by the management of the Rhumbelow Theatre, Handful of Keys runs at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from June 10 to 22. Booking is at Computicket.
