Tickling the Ivories

Stage Door Theatre presents the World Premiere production of Kevin Black’s Tickling the Ivories. The show will run through November 19th in the venue’s Theatre 2.

Featuring songs by famous pianists and songwriters from several centuries, Tickling the Ivories combines classical pieces with 20th Century pop classics by the likes of Billy Joel, Elton John, Carole King, Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Ray Charles, Barry Manilow and many others.

Pianists Michael Friedman and Sarah Statler are ‘tickling the ivories’ for the production. They will be accompanied by percussionist Roy Fantel and bassist Rupert Ziawinski. Vocalists Sandra Marante, Devon Norris, Candice Shedd-Thompson, and Ryan Stutz round out the ensemble.

Tickling the Ivories celebrates and showcases the instrument that inspired artists ranging from Mozart to Liberace. “Ivories highlights the piano, first and foremost,” Black explained recently.
