“Drop Another Hat” comes to Ley Hill

flanders swannIn “Drop Another Hat”, Michael Bernstein and Colin Stevens perform all the well known Flanders and Swann songs, along with their wit and repartit. I have seen the show and strongly recommend it.

It will be staged at the Ley Hill Memorial Hall on Saturday, March 16th at 7.30 pm. Tickets cost £10, including a glass of wine  during the interval, and are available from Mike Appleby tel 01494 785075 or Roger Perry tel 01494 771304.

I hope you can join us for what I’m sure will be a very good evening,

Reviews:

“Gentle satire in musical form is still alive and kicking, with the utmost discretion, in the English shires. The standard bearers now of an art that is unique to this country are the laconically-precise Michael Bernstein and Colin Stevens, a pianist and humorist of rare talent.”
Dave Cooper, Thanet Extra.

 “Michael Bernstein and Colin Stevens perform fascinating impersonations of Flanders & Swann, and they have a good following – sold out for four performances. Bernstein has considerable acting ability and he uses it with gusto, pointing precisely and with clarity to the comic songs that appealed so much to the British public during the fifties and sixties. Stevens is a talented musician and first-class accompanist. He plays for two hours, trading smiles and gestures with Bernstein and joining him for duets to his own piano playing.”
Peter Tatlow, The Stage.

“Bernstein & Stevens recreate the wit, social comment and musical dexterity of the original shows much better than I dared hope. They left me pleased to have seen the original 40 year ago at London’s Fortune Theatre, and delighted to be in on the revival”
Rex Cooper, Kent Profile.

“There was plenty of nostalgia and gentle satire in good measure, all skilfully delivered, and a fervent Englishness too. In fact, what they gave above all was a brilliant display of what the English do so well: delightfully good-humoured entertainment set to stylishly lyrical music that gives enormous pleasure. Indeed, the performance was such that it seemed Flanders & Swann were back again themselves – and there can be no greater accolade than that!”
Edith Stokes, Canterbury Festival.

“Although Flanders & Swann gave their last performances more than 30 years ago, they still have an army of fans even today. Michael and Colin’s tribute contains all their finest work and there are some wonderful – almost uncanny – moments when you feel that the great originals are back with us again”
Richard Whitmore, North Herts Comet and Hertfordshire on Sunday.
