The life and songs of Jack Buchanan

A cabaret presentation about the debonair British star Jack Buchanan, featuring the songs he made famous. 

 

Devised and performed by Michael Chance with George Hall at the Piano.

 

Michael Chance was born on the day that Buchanan died.  Michael has been fascinated by this elegant man since this discovery and was inspired to put together this show which takes us gently through Jack Buchananís story; his life, his loves. Michael recreates many of those well-loved songs which include "And Her Mother Came Too", "They Didn't Believe Me", "Goodnight Vienna" and of course his theme song "That's Entertainment".

 

Songs by the Gershwins, Cole Porter, Arthur Schwartz, Jerome Kern & others.

"A marvellous performer" - John Wallowitch

 

"Michael Chance can take a song you've heard all your life and breathe into it something brighter and fresher than you've ever heard before......he's both a wonderful singer  and  a touching actor, as elegant as he is knee-slapping funny, and whether you're watching him in his one-man show or "Love From Ivor" Michael Chance will tickle your fancy and fill your heart with song......"

- Carol Hall

 

"The epitome of charm, class and hilarity. I adore him!!!" - Sally Mayes

 

"Michael Chance's own personal style and charm fit his Jack Buchananís persona like a well-tailored tux" - Margaret Whiting
