This Love Will Undo Us All Season: Thursday 1 - Saturday 3 April Time: 7.30pm Tickets: $15 full/ $12 concession

Wellington songwriter Dan Adams (Verona) has created an intimate live show of Shakespeare songs to celebrate the launch of his CD This Love Will Undo Us All. It is a stunning collection of poems and dialogue from Shakespeare¹s plays, set to acoustic rock styles that are both refreshingly unique and undeniably Kiwi.

The show features the original musicians from the CD - Dan Adams (vocals, guitar, fife), Sebastian Morgan-Lynch (cello) and Douglas Voon (percussion, backing vocals).

³With just three musicians it's easy for each sound to find its own space - something that is more difficult to achieve in a larger ensemble like Verona. In this relaxed setting I can explore the full range of my singing voice, and different shades of meaning in these amazing texts.²

For everyone who enjoyed art-rock band Verona¹s award winning Shakespeare show Storm (2002) and their recent NZ International Arts Festival show Geographical Cure this is a 'must see' night - and a chance to introduce friends and family to this inspiring musical talent.

The CD will be available for sale at the show or visit www.thislove.co.nz. Normally $30, there will be a special show CD price of $25.
