Synopsis

Must close 28 March!

You Am I frontman Tim Rogers’ iconic solo album is brought to life in this feel-good musical love story, now playing to standing ovations and rave reviews.

Performed with a live band led by Rogers, What Rhymes with Cars and Girls is an intimate musical jewel that sees two lovers brought together by a conjunction of the stars and a pizza delivery gone weird.

It’s a raw and complex urban romance – a balm for the hardest of hearts, and solace for anyone who has ever been in love. Playwright Aidan Fennessy (National Interest) has threaded these beautiful songs across the class divide to create a stunning new tale of contemporary love in Australia.

Time Out

Evocative, witty and heartfelt.

The Age

breathes new life into tired boy-meets-girl clichés. Packs a considerable emotional punch.

ArtsHub

Tim Rogers is a statesman of Australian music.

Music Feeds

A troubadour from the tip of his felt-brimmed hat to the idiosyncratic chop of his right hand.
