Marie’s Crisis brings showtunes singalong to Melbourne’s Common Rooms for three nights of fun!

Adam Michael Tilford and Kenney Green-TilfordNestled in the heart of New York’s enchanting West Village is a basement piano bar so iconic, celebrities queue to get in. And for three nights only, Marie’s Crisis and its top pianists are coming to Melbourne to play especially for you.

This evening is unplugged and spontaneous – it’s just the crowd, the piano and the showtunes. There’s no set list, no stage, no microphone and no shooshing. Everyone’s welcome to sing their heart out – or just stand and enjoy the musical mavens who know all the lyrics.

It’s riotous and rambunctious and welcomes all ages, all sexual orientations, all backgrounds and all singing levels. Sip cocktails and enjoy the uplifting, magical feeling of being right there on Broadway.

Performed by Kenney Green-Tilford and Adam Michael Tilford, this communal sing along night features songs from musicals ranging from popular classics, such as Les Mis, Wicked, My Fair Lady, The Sound of Music and Grease, to the cult showtunes from the musicals of Stephen Sondheim – and everything in between.
