2 Pianos, 4 Hands

By TED DYKSTRA and RICHARD GREENBLATT

DEC. 08, 2019 - JAN. 05, 2020
Rosenthal Shelterhouse Theatre

About

Directed by TOM FREY

Performed in-the-round!
Piano wizardry and laugh-out-loud comedy come together to tell the story of Richard and Ted’s life-long pursuit of becoming concert pianist superstars. They work tirelessly to master legendary music from Beethoven and Bach to Billy Joel, enduring endless practice, stage fright and agonizing competition along the way. Two performers tickle the ivories (and your funny bone) while portraying dozens of characters like their naïve childhood selves, the eccentric piano teachers who guide them and the demanding parents who push them. Laughter and music abound in this riotous show about Richard and Ted’s humbling quest for musical greatness.

“Soaring, soul-elevating, three-dimensional waves of sound. Bravo!” — Chicago Sun-Times
“A rare jewel of real entertainment.” — The Daily Mail


ADVISORY:
2 Pianos, 4 Hands is suitable for audiences ages 12 and up. Richard and Ted’s passionate quest for musical stardom includes mild adult language and other mature themes, which are often addressed through the characters’ angsty, teenage versions of themselves. A strobe light is also used.

RUNNING TIME: The show runs 2 hours and 20 minutes, including one intermission.
