About this event :
Quite a few of the residents here at The Russell Hill enjoy theatre so we are sure to include plenty of opportunities in our programming. On the list is Stratford Festival, Shaw Festival, and Soulpepper where we’ll be attending one of their ‘docu musicals’: 88 Keys. Soulpepper’s Director of Music, Mike Ross, and Tom Allen created this production. Mike Ross is particularly known for his outstanding, original musicals that also inform through story telling.
“88 keys, 230 strings, and 7,500 working parts make up every piano. For three hundred years, it has been the vehicle through which genius is conveyed, from Beethoven and Chopin to Fats Domino, Ray Charles, and Billy Joel. Mike Ross leads Soulpepper musicians on an exploration of the ‘King of the Instruments’.” https://soulpepper.ca/performances/88-keys/6180
