Back to the 1980s for new show on Cen­tre­point stage

Manawatu Guardian - - NEWS -

Al­ler­gic to love: curse of the 80s is on stage for two shows, Oc­to­ber 12 and 13 at Cen­tre­point.

Win­ner of three NZ fringe fes­ti­val awards, in­clud­ing the Cen­tre­point tour award, this all-orig­i­nal New Zealand show will en­ter­tain, break hearts and rock souls.

This show has taken over 12 years to fin­ish since the first song was recorded and writ­ten. It is a new all-orig­i­nal mu­si­cal mas­ter­piece writ­ten and per­formed by Tom Knowles who only two years ago starred in Coun­ter­point’s pro­duc­tion of Stag Week­end.

Star­ring a full live rock band of mis­fits, in­clud­ing Christchurch’s own Jed Par­sons and Moses Rob­bins, and Auck­land’s Sam Lo­gan, as they at­tempt to tell this un­usual tale of love — about a man who is cursed with break­ing into 80s rock bal­lads at the thought of love.

It will im­press with its hu­mour, great 80s style mu­sic and cos­tumes.

There’s crowd par­tic­i­pa­tion, so there will be no short­age of a good time had by all.

If theatre isn’t usu­ally your thing or you want some­thing more than your av­er­age theatre ex­pe­ri­ence then this show is for you.

It’s a band telling an epic story of love and a per­fect night out for ev­ery­one.

■ Cen­tre­point Oc­to­ber 12, 7pm and Oc­to­ber 13h, 7.30pm: Tick­ets $15/$20 from: /www.palmyfringe.nz/al­ler­gic-to-love-curseof-the-80s
