All theRightNotes back at The Globe
When Kane Parsons presents All The Right Notes, he’s sharp but never flat.
Kane’s legendary show, inspired by the great Danish pianist/ comedian, Victor Borge, Is returning, better than ever.
Kane, who’s Programme Leader for Performance at Ucol, pioneered his show both at The Globe and Regent On Broadway several years ago and now he’s refining it for a repeat season.
All the Right Notes will be staged at The Globe from December 15-18 at 7.30pm and December 17 at 2pm.
‘‘My show has evolved. I’ve retained the favourites that people remember, focused on my piano skills and introduced some 21st century magic,’’ Kane says.
Using his talent as a comedian, singer, teacher, compere and musicologist, Kane has created his one-man show which owes its uniqueness to the Clown Prince of Denmark, Victor Borge, who performed at the Regent 30 years ago.
‘‘Borge, at his height, would take a piece of music, turn it inside out, upside down, back to front, then stitch it back together again and play it flawlessly,’’ Kane says. ‘‘For 50 years he toured the world, including many visits to New Zealand, both as a solo pianist but often with full orchestra and soprano soloist.’’
Kane hopes to create that magic in his own distinctive way. He has built a team around him, led by director, Craig Geenty, to present a visual symphony which includes projection and, lighting.
While Kane is known as a comedic pianist, there’s also a serious musician inside of him. In his own unique way he wants to educate his audience about wellknown composers, their foibles, failures and fame.
‘‘This is a show for all generations. Older people will recall the antics of Victor Borge while younger people will be introduced to his exclusive talent and breadth of classical music that we will demonstrate in our own distinctive way,’’ Kane says.
‘‘It’s the ideal show for Christmas, providing fun and amusement for the whole family.’’
Kane has played leading and supporting roles in a number of local shows such as Buddy Holly, Godspell, Rocky Horror, Hair and Man of La Mancha.
