The Choir of Man will sing, drink and delight Key West audiences on Thursday, Jan. 27 at Tennessee Williams Theatre on the campus of The College of the Florida Keys. The one-night-only performance is part of their 2022 North American tour. The show that’s been the hands-down hit at numerous international music festivals is known across the globe as “the ultimate feel-good show.”

The Choir of Man hosts a 90-minute party, concert and the “the best pub ‘lock-in’ you’ve ever attended.” Featuring pop, classic rock, folk, Broadway and pub tunes, The Choir of Man has something for everyone. A multi-talented cast of nine handsome guys combines harmonies, singalongs, tap dance and poetic meditations on the power of community in this homage to that gathering place we’ve all missed so much over the last year: your local pub. With a real working bar on stage, come ready to drink in the action.

“After spending months at home during the pandemic, the boys hit the road in early 2021 and took Australia, New Zealand and UK by storm,” said Nic Doodson, one of the show’s producers. “After sold-out engagements in multiple international markets and venues, including the Sydney Opera House, our sights are now set on a return to the States for this all-new 2022 tour. … So, come thirsty for great music and great beer!” 

The group’s pandemic recovery world tour included a 15-week run in Cleveland’s Playhouse Square. Gina Vernaci, Playhouse Square CEO, said, “It is the perfect comeback show with music you absolutely love.”

The Choir of Man’s repertoire includes songs by Adele, Queen, Paul Simon, Katy Perry, Red Hot Chili Peppers and more. 

Tickets are available at 305-295-7676 or keystix.com. Full bar service is available.
