Who Does He Think He Is?
An exhilarating evening of Judy Garland, Julie Andrews, groovy Grandmothers and growing up in the Wairarapa!
Jason Chasland (Spector with the BeatGirls) is an impressionist, singer and entertainer with leather lungs! He stars in this fun and funny, one man tour de force created especially for Jason and his mind-blowing ability to do hilarious and accurate impressions.
Performing over thirty impressions of Broadway stars, contemporary icons and rock legends, Jason chops and changes so fast it’ll leave you gasping for air and squealing with delight as you recognize your favourite stars. From Barbara Streisand to Judy Garland, Aaron Neville to Chubby Checker and Julie Andrews to Lady Gaga, there is something for everyone.
The ImpoSTAR is a magical and moving trip down memory lane, mixed with jaw-droppingly incredible impressions and an endearing personal story of identity and growing up pretending to be other people.
The ImpoSTAR premiered at the Theatre Royal Nelson in 2012, before a smash hit season at BATS Theatre, Wellington. This 2013 season is bigger and better! For this exciting main stage Circa Theatre experience The ImpoSTAR has been revamped with fabulous new songs, characters and more of Jason’s amazing impressionist journey.
