With time being precious during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe we challenged this year’s acts to deliver a 50-word elevator pitch for their show. This time it’s the turn of performer and musical director Stewart D’Arrietta.
Stewart D’Arrietta (My Leonard Cohen, Fringe 2016-17) returns with a new show for 2018. Belly of a Drunken Piano offers gritty, imaginative arrangements of music from the most enigmatic and influential songwriters of the age, namely Waits, Newman and Dury, punctuated by D’Arrietta’s laconic humour and compositions of his own.
What other show shouldn’t we miss?
The Girl Who Jumped Off The Hollywood Sign – I saw it last year, very good. And we’re really looking forward to seeing stand-up comedian Camilla Cleese, daughter of John Cleese, who is producing the show. We bet it’ll be brilliant!
Name of your show: Belly of a Drunken Piano
Venue: Assembly Rooms – Ballroom (Assembly Festival)
Dates: 2 – 26 August 2018
