Come and join pianist/singer/entertainer John Martin and relive the glittering and glamorous world of one of the 20th Century’s greatest theatrical talents, Sir Noel Coward.
This sparkling show is rich with Coward’s witty and often irreverent songs and bon mots, with stories of his life that include his war years, his attitudes towards fellow theatricals, and his gentle (sometimes not so gentle!) digs at the English upper class and its foreign relations!
A journey through the life of this luminous genius makes a perfect entertainment.

“A singer could ask no more of a pianist than sensitive hands, intuitive musicality, and an acute awareness of the singer’s breathing and phrasing. John Martin is such a pianist and then some! A consummate musician and composer who revels in the art of ensemble, John lives and breathes music. All fortunate enough to hear this man performing live never forget the experience.” — Jose Carbo (premier Australian baritone)
