Australia Echoes of the Jazz Age: Gold Coast

Starring John Bell and Simon Tedeschi
And Special Guest Mandy Bishop

The 1920s, or the Jazz Age, was one of the most thrilling decades in history.

In the words of F. Scott Fitzgerald, who invented the term, it was an age of miracles, an age of art, an age of excess and an age of satire. The dazzling events of the era lasted for ten years until, as he put it so evocatively, they leaped to a spectacular death with the Wall Street crash in October 1929. Nowhere is this period better described than in Echoes of the Jazz Age, Fitzgerald’s famous essay on the Roaring Twenties.

And nowhere is the decade’s remarkable aura more brilliantly evoked than in John Bell and Simon Tedeschi’s performance of the same title, in words and music.
