An evening of dynamic, live, rock and roll, blues and boogie woogie combined with a bemused look at the life and times of a piano player who refuses to sell his soul to become rich and famous. It’s the reversal of an old theme. The play’s spirit and sentiment is positive and hopeful; you may or may not become a rich rock star and a household name, but you can aspire to do good work and reach your audience.
