Chase Padgett premiered 6 Guitars, his first one-man show, in Orlando in 2010. It quickly became one of the most successful shows in the history of the North American Fringe Festival circuit. It received rave reviews, won 17 prestigious awards, and set box office records in almost every city it has played in. We presented it at Evelina's in Little Brook in April 2016 and it was a big success for us as well as a unique, unforgettable, and often hilarious theatrical experience.
Texte qui résume Nashville Hurricane, tiré du site web de l'artiste
Text that sums up Nashville Hurricane, drawn from the artist's website:
Forty years ago a mysterious acoustic guitarist appeared from nowhere, conquered the music industry, and vanished without a trace… until now. Fresh on the heels of his smash hit 6 Guitars, virtuoso actor and musician Chase Padgett becomes a manager, a mother, a mentor, and the guitar prodigy himself as each one tells their side of the rise, demise, and resurrection of the best damn guitar player you’ve never heard of: the Nashville Hurricane. During the course of this 75 minute one-man masterpiece the audience learns about Henry Waltrip (the Nashville Hurricane) from his humble trailer park beginnings alongside his white trash mother, Brenda, to the crazy gigs on the road with his blues playing mentor, Tyrone. The stories and songs unfold into hilarious rants on love and music, a riveting tale involving the dark side of show biz, and blazing guitar work any audience is sure to rave about.
