MONK MISTERIOSO: a journey into the silence of Thelonious Monk
A multi-media theatrical performance celebrating the life and music of Thelonious Monk
‘With a mixture of theatrical panache and sheer talent, they all produced a show that raised the bar. The beauty and innovation of the production filled every note and words spoken and sung on the night. Brilliant!‘
