The Balkan Elvis in Eastern Bloc Rock

Space Theatre, Adelaide Cabaret Festival
Wed 13th - Thurs 14th June 2018
Festival Dr, Adelaide SA

What if the king of Rock and Roll had been born in Eastern Europe and played piano accordion? Mikelangelo brings his alter ego Johnny Presley – the Balkan Elvis – in this wild and wonderful quest for fame, fortune and love behind the Iron Curtain.

Living under Eastern Bloc communist rule, our charming and misguided chancer holds up a skewed mirror to the American Elvis. Reimagining Elvis’ hits as lilting waltzes and barnstorming Balkan wedding polkas, Elvis hasn’t been this much outrageous fun since 1956 – funny, moving and dead sexy.
