A thousand dreams, a handful of loves, too many martinis and 24 hours packed into 80 minutes of song

mbkt 960

Neil Gooding Productions in association with Hayes Theatre Co presents Mitchell Butel in Killing Time, tales of time from the jazz and blues songbooks as part of A Month of Sundays at Hayes Theatre Co from 9 November.

Three-time Helpmann Award winner (and voice of the Playschool theme song to boot) Mitchell Butel returns to the Sydney cabaret stage after star turns in The Government Inspector, Angels in America, Orpheus in the Underworld, The Mikado, Forum, Gettin’ Square, Meow Meow’s Little Match Girl and Avenue Q in a hilarious and occasionally sentimental tale of 24 hours in the life of himself and of all our selves. Backed by a white-hot jazz trio led by Daryl Wallis, Butel weaves his way through a night of song including works by Ellington, Berlin, Jarreau, Bernstein, Mercer, Arlen, Elling, Sondheim and Parton…sorry, what, Dolly Parton? Really??

“I'm thrilled that Killing Time is making its Sydney premiere at Hayes Theatre Co. I love this theatre and the people running it and I love doing this show. So much love going around. It's like the 60s all over. Come get a piece Sydney” - Mitchell Butel.

"Mitchell Butel’s return to cabaret after a 10-year break is an absolute triumph" Adelaide Advertiser

"A comic actor of infinite resource, invention and exquisite timing" The Age

"Deeply charismatic, smoothly sanguine and one of the finest voices you’ll ever hear" Sydney Morning Herald
