My Leonard Cohen : Sat Mar 18 2017
@ Thornbury Theatre.

Sold Out Smash Hit of the Edinburgh Fringe D’Arrietta’s six piece band provides gutsy and arresting interpretations of Cohen’s powerful works, framed by a personal narrative. The stories give an insight into Cohen’s life and the motivations behind the songs, with a sprinkling of laconic humour. ‘A glowing tribute to this legendary artist’ Pop Culture Few bodies of musical work rouse, seduce and are of such great solace as that of the great singer songwriter Leonard Cohen. Soulful lyrics are laced with raw emotion and sheer seductiveness. D’Arrietta’s arrangements add an uplifting, upbeat feel. ‘In D’Arrietta’s hands, these are proper rock songs’ Broadway Baby **** For two decades, Stewart D’Arrietta and his collaborators have brought their own musical personality to the works of great songwriters, including Tom Waits, John Lennon and Randy Newman, and have received praise for shows in Australia and overseas.

‘My Leonard Cohen’ was the toast of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016, with sold out shows and rave reviews from critics and fans alike. ’…this is one not to be missed’ Daily Business ***** D’Arrietta on piano and vocals is accompanied by a veritable ‘who’s who’ of Australia’s best rock musicians. ‘Taking no prisoners… to put it mildly, they are storming’ SG Fringe **** Expect Cohen’s best, including the heartrending Suzanne, the iconic Tower Of Song, the desperately sensual I’m Your Man, and the mournful, but mighty Hallelujah – all delivered as you’ve never heard them before. ‘A show not just for Cohen fans but for anyone with a true love of music and theatre and great musicianship’ Stage Whispers ‘A show for both newcomers and golden Leonard lovers, both intimate as well as big entertainment’ The Beat ‘…the opportunity to experience the remarkable Stewart D’Arrietta in live performance’ Australian Arts Review ‘My Leonard Cohen is above all, very, very fun’ Broadway Baby ****!
