Pete 'n' Keely
The European Premiere of the off-Broadway musical hit Pete ‘n’ Keely comes to Tristan Bates Theatre - a string of hits, a cast of two, ‘Forever Plaid’ meets ‘I Do, I Do’.

It’s 1968. America’s Swingin’ Sweethearts, Pete Bartel and Keely Stevens, are performing live on national television! The only catch? They haven’t spoken to each other in five years. Through a non-stop parade of song hits from the 50s and 60s - highlighted by elaborately staged flashbacks - Pete and Keely relive the roller coaster ride that got them where they are today... divorced! Pete and Keely have some unfinished business and the tension bubbling beneath the show’s glitzy surface threatens to boil over at any moment in a confrontation that will definitely not be ready for prime time.
As the inevitable blow-up gets closer, the songs become increasingly double- edged. History repeats itself, live and in full colour, as Pete and Keely head towards a conclusion that’s at once uproariously funny and surprisingly touching.
