Jason Chasland is an impressionist and entertainer with leather lungs! He stars in this fun and funny tour de force created especially to showcase his singing talent and his mind blowing ability to do hilarious impressions.
In a show fusing together classic icons with contemporary music phenomenon's - from Barbra Streisand to Nicki Minaj, from Aaron Neville to Chubby Checker and from Julie Andrews to Britney Spears, Chasland's impressions are hilarious and jaw droppingly incredible.
“I am extremely excited to be bringing this show to Wellington,” says Chasland. “Inspired by old Vaudeville acts and movie stars who were ‘triple threat' performers, I thought with hard work and discipline I could totally do that! So I began researching hours of audio and video footage; a year or so later I contacted Lyndee-Jane. We have created what I believe is a special, unique and mind blowing theatrical experience!”
The ImpoSTAR is an exhilarating evening with over twenty amazing impressions that chop and change so fast it will leave the audience gasping for air!
The ImpoSTAR marks the last performance at BATS Theatre until renovations complete 2014.
