Stewart D’Arrietta is set to take audiences on a passionate, demented and intense rock journey through the rich catalogue of music from the legendary Tom Waits with his show Belly Of A Drunken Piano.
By mining some of Waits’ most memorable hits such as Martha, The Piano Has Been Drinking, Big In Japan and Hold On as well as adding in a few of his own compositions D’Arrietta is able to showcase Waits’ vast musical history but also bring the show to life with his own trademark raw vocal style and laconic humour.
D’Arrietta is an award-winning composer and musical director who has performed right around Australia, and the world, at The Montreal Jazz Festival, EX Theatre Tokyo, Soho Playhouse New York, Union Square Theatre New York and The Riverside Theatres London. With this extensive career under his belt, D’Arrietta is more than capable and qualified to undertake such an ambitious and exciting show.
