As long as I can remember I have been a huge fan of Martin and Lewis, so I was excited to meet Derek Marshall and Nicholas Arnold the lead actors who play Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis in Dean & Jerry What Might Have Been the latest production of Theatre Collingwood on now at the Gayety Theatre!
Even at an ungodly hour of the morning for performers. Derek and Nick were very charming and we had a great chat about the show and the incredibly talented duo they portray.
I have to admit, although they had some similarities, the two actors , while behind the mics in PEAK studios, didn’t look much like their famous counterparts. That was until yesterday afternoon when I saw them onstage at the Gayety Theatre. WOW! They were amazing!!
The voices, the mannerisms, the comedic timing and even their chemistry made them identical to what it would have been like seeing Martin and Lewis live! These two dynamic performances combined with a heartfelt and witty script, an amazing band and stellar technical crew made for an amazing show.
Don’t miss this one!
