Inspired by classic old-style comedy, Kane Parsons keyboard performance All The Right Notes is an homage to Danish comedian Victor Borge. Borge, who toured right up to his death in 2000, performed at the Regent on Broadway 30 years ago. For this revised production, Parsons worked with director Craig Geenty. As well as making use of back projection, lighting effects and animation, he intended to play up the physical comedy elements. The show is at The Globe from December 15 - 18 at 7.30pm, with a 2pm matinee on Saturday, December 17.
