The Balkan Elvis in NZ

Harcourts Hawke's Bay Arts Festival
Wed 24th October 2018
Pacific Crystal Palace Spiegeltent

Part road movie, part redemption tale, part rock 'n' roll musical, follow the exploits of Mikelangelo’s alter ego, Johnny Presley – the Balkan Elvis – in his quest for love, fame and fortune behind the Iron Curtain. This time, he takes the show to the Harcourts Hawke's Bay Arts Festival to hold skewed mirror to the myth and music of the American Elvis. The King’s hits will be reimagined as lilting waltzes and barnstorming Balkan wedding polkas. Elvis hasn’t been this much outrageous fun since 1956 – uproarious, uplifting and dead sexy.
