As a dancing queen, musical theatre boy who grew up in an AFL family in a mining town in regional North Queensland, Teale Howie knows a thing or two about putting on a show. Before moving to Sydney and bursting out of the closet, he played Manly Man for 22 years to great acclaim and rave reviews. Now, he’s taking you right back to this ‘prohibition era’ to ask, “who’s the man?”
“Who’s the Man?” is a one-man vaudeville show that explores masculinity, growing up in the closet and performing in order to belong. Teale tells stories of love, friendship and fear and reveals just how he bamboozled his audience for so long. Directed by Hannah Barn, with musical direction by Andy Freeborn and arrangements by Steven Kramer, join Teale as he croons through a Broadway jazz set, serenades a rag doll and dances… hip hop?
