Jan van de Stool I Get the Music in You

Chanteuse and musical comedy star, Queenie van de Zandt, finally brings her cult-character Jan van de Stool, International Musical Therapist, back to Melbourne in this multi-award nominated satirical swipe at self-help.

Jan flogs her courses, books and BBQ aprons, takes interpretive dancing to new heights and finishes with a 'colonic irrigation of the spirit'. Being Dutch-Australian, Jan’s grip on the English language constantly comes unstuck, as does the evening, when insecurity about one of her student’s extraordinary singing talent, leaves the audience floored and screaming for more.

‘A new star of Australian comedy… recalls nothing less than the frightmare early-glory days of Dame Edna... destined to become one of our great comic creations ★★★★★' Sunday Telegraph

‘Just when you think dry, underplayed, deadpan comedy is a lost art in Australia, along comes Queenie van de Zandt to restore your faith.’ The Age

Suitable for audiences 13+
