Pianist/singer/writer/comedian Phil Scott, best known for The Wharf Revue, takes us back to London’s Swinging 60s in this musical tribute to songwriter Lionel Bart.

With Phil as your musical guide, you’ll revisit the life and times of the man who wrote Consider Yourself, As Long As He Needs Me and Where is Love, but also the Theme Song of From Russia With Love (the second James bond movie) and Cliff Richard’s Living Doll. And much more!

This concert performance is based on Phil’s Helpmann Award-nominated cabaret show, Reviewing the Situation.

Date & Time: Sunday 27 May at 3pm


Best known by Riverside audiences for The Wharf Revue, Phil Scott chats with guest writer Jason Blake from Audrey Journal about his upcoming show that explores the life of composer Lionel Bart.

…a fine tribute to a lost talent.” – Australian Stage Online

a one-man show that positively bursts with Bart’s own irreverent joy for life and living it to the fullest.” – The Advertiser

Scott creates an endearing character with a ready wit, … [his]wizardry on the piano is a genuine delight as his fingers fly effortlessly across the keys bringing Bart’s simple melodies to jaunty life.” – Jo Litson, Sunday Telegraph
