You Am I frontman Tim Rogers hits The Playhouse stage this month with the musical theatre gem What Rhymes with Cars and Girls, part of GPAC’s 2017 Deakin University Theatre Season.
The heartfelt songs from Rogers’ first debut solo album have been expertly woven together with words by award winning playwright Aidan Fennessy to bring this contemporary tale of urban romance to the stage.
As musical director, Rogers leads a three piece band, together with the acting and singing talents of Johnny Carr and Sophie Ross on stage, While director Clare Watson uses her talent to bring this performance to life in perfect harmony.
What Rhymes with Cars and Girls sees two lovers brought together by a conjunction of the stars and a pizza delivery gone weird. It’s a raw and complex urban romance, a balm for the hardest of hearts, and solace for anyone who has ever been in love.
MTC Artistic Director Brett Sheehy AO said, ‘What Rhymes with Cars and Girls going on tour is a testament to Australia’s desire for contemporary, home-grown works. When you combine a feel-good love story inspired by an iconic Australian album with some of the country’s most charming creative talents, you’re bound to create a type of magic that captures the hearts of its audiences, as it did when it premiered in 2015. I have no doubt that it will delight audiences right around the country.”
