America’s Got Downton

7:30 p.m. | $49-$52 | All Ages
1111 SW Broadway Ave., Portland, OR 97205
Direct from London’s West End comes America’s Got Downton. The London Daily Telegraph hails the show (called ‘The Only Way is Downton’ in the UK) a “remarkable, tour de force one-man show.” Luke Kempner creates more than thirty characters in this parody which blends celebrity visitors with well-known characters from Downton Abbey. Cultures clash and eras hilariously collide to help the cast save the estate from financial ruin – again!
Luke Kempner, called “The Energizer Bunny of impressionists” by The Huffington Post, made his name with YouTube hit Downstairs At Downton and appearances in musicals including Les Misérables and Avenue Q. Kempner’s debut solo show won critical acclaim and sell-out audiences at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
America’s Got Downton is produced by James Seabright, the original producer of the worldwide hit Potted Potter. The show is written and performed by Luke Kempner and Directed by Owen Lewis.
