James Flynn & Leah Guelfi - “Only You”
Wednesday 30 October 7.00pm
When scented candles can no longer cover the stink in your relationship and you are beginning to choose your weapons, it’s time for help. Will Joe & Maries unorthodox approach, rekindle the relationship or burn down the house?
“Only you” is an original mini musical written by popular entertainer, James Flynn. The audience are taken on a rollercoaster journey through the highs and lows of a modern day relationship. There are plenty of laughs, perhaps a few tears, and even a splash of intrigue in this cleverly crafted story which is designed to showcase Flynn’s original music.
James is no stranger to this style of performance having written and performed in a variety of hit shows:
“Wonderful”- Celebrating Stevie Wonder, & “Gotta be Gatsby”.
Plus more music based productions:
“Unforgettable” – The Nat King Cole Show, “Simply Sinatra”, “That’s Amore”- The Dean Martin Story & “An evening with Bobby Darin”,
Flynn was also the writer and Artistic Director with his own award winning theatre company ‘Pickles Productions’ from 2000 to 2016.
Tonight James kicks off his latest collaboration with a new star on the Perth scene, the wonderful Leah Guelfi.
Both are joined by a five piece ensemble consisting of the cream of Perth’s jazz musicians: Glyn MacDonald – Piano,
Ray Walker- Guitar, Adam Springhetti – Bass, Simon Styles- Saxes & Ben Falle – Drums
