The Nero Show
- Written by: Paul Jenden and Gareth Farr
- Directed by: Paul Jenden
- Circa One
- 15 May − 19 June
Lights, action, ego…
It is 1963, and a live TV show is about to be broadcast from Nero’s mansion, hosted by Seneca, the well known philosopher and TV personality. Rome’s most infamous Emperor has been dropped squarely into the life and times of the glamorous 1960s and the story of his rise and fall begins to look all too familiar…
Paul Jenden and Gareth Farr combine Roman excess with ‘60s cool in their totally modern take on this ageless story of preening politicians, upstaging wives, inconvenient mistresses and explosive enemies.
Cue drum rolls and sweeping harp! This wickedly extravagant entertainment from the creators of Troy, Monarchy and Rome has to be seen to be believed.
“So full of musical and linguistic invention… it’s almost impossible to keep up with the jokes…” NZ Listener, Rome – the Musical
