YVONNE ARNAUD THEATRE, GUILDFORD Presents
LIFE IS FOR LIVING:CONVERSATIONS WITH COWARD
With DAVID SHRUBSOLE
Fusing theatricality, music, and conversations (both real and imagined) with gems from British musical icon Ivor Novello, Life is for Living blends the wit of Fascinating Aida's Dillie Keane and the satire of Jeremy Nicholas with the wisdom of Maya Angelou, the lyricism of Irving Berlin, and the syncopation of George Gershwin.
A uniquely British take on the twists and turns of life, the show will include Shrubsole's original compositions and Coward poetry set to music, plus old favorites newly re-scored and classics from "The Master" himself.
"No American performer can match the lofty tone that Simon Green brings to Coward's songs."
-Stephen Holden, The New York Times on Coward at Christmas
