A runaway success in London’s West End, at successive Edinburgh Festivals, at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and right across the USA, Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only the Piano Player is a hilarious send-up of classical music, which has established Australian pianist, David Scheel, as the successor to the legendary Victor Borge.

David's incredible variety of accents and voices has seen him compared with the late Robin Williams, and Peter Ustinov. This performance combines this talent, his humour and beautiful music to deliver a performance that will have you laughing off your seat! Hear a familiar tune played in the styles of the old masters, plus an iPod; two famous pieces played simultaneously, one with the right hand, one with the left. 

“As funny as any, wittier than most, and, uniquely, a concert pianist of international stature...He stands alone, in a class of his own.”
- BBC Arts Review

“The only show in town that can satisfy lovers of classical music and comedy alike.”
- San Francisco Chronicle
