RICHARD KATES – ‘IT’S WHAT I UNDERSTAND!’
Award winning actor and writer, Richard Kates, star of Jesus Christ Superstar, Joseph, Godspell, The Rocky Horror Show and BBC TVs Orion, at last brings to London his long awaited one man show ‘It’s What I Understand!’
Taking you on a journey through his own words and music he delves into his extensive repertoire, to bring you some of the most lyrical, sharpest, outrageous and wittiest songs to have been written for the musical theatre over the past two decades, including Streisand Got There First, I’ve Never Been In A Show By Andrew Lloyd Webber! and The Masturbation Tango.
With three critically acclaimed CDs to his name, the late night theatrical revue Wicked Lips, and Su Pollard’s one woman show A Song, A Frock & A Tinkle, he now steps back into the spotlight to bring you an unforgettable evening which will warm your heart. If you enjoy musical comedy in the ‘purest’ sense of the word, then this is a man and a show you will not want to miss!
With ANDY SPILLER at the piano.
