Goldthorpe Creative's Chet Baker: Like Someone in Love
In this thrilling, dark theatrical performance, NZ actor David Goldthorpe explores both the haunting, unforgettable music that made jazz legend Chet Baker famous and the visceral, self-destruction that made him infamous. He takes the audience on a gripping ride through the highs and lows of Baker’s life, interspersing the dialogue with expertly arranged Baker classics played live with a full three piece jazz band. "Mercifully and darkly funny" (The Age Melbourne, Australia). "This is a show for theatre-goers as well as jazz lovers” (The Dominion Post, NZ). After extensive touring of NZ, Australia and the UK this exceptional work brings an American story back to America, from the lips of a multi-talented NZ performer.
