Parkinson at Crazy Coqs
Parky's back but not as you know it! The Parkinson Show will be brought back to life but with a neat twist. This time the Grand Master has handed his talking stick to his youngest son, Mike Parkinson. Fresh from a sell-out tour of their show An Evening with Sir Michael Parkinson, father and son have been keen to bring back the kind of talk show missing from our current media landscape for too long. Having honed his skills interviewing his father on tour, Parkinson is ready to step up to the plate and interview talented practitioners from every branch of the arts.

or one evening only, Mike Parkinson, youngest son of Sir Michael Parkinson, takes to the Crazy Coqs stage to bring back his famous father's talk show by interviewing the greatest male ballet dancer of our generation, Carlos Acosta. Having honed his skills through interviewing his father on tour, Parkinson is ready to step up to the plate and, in intimate conversation, explore Acosta's rise to the top. Described by one critic as "a dancer who slashes across space faster than anyone else, who lacerates the air with shapes so clear and sharp they seem to throw off sparks", Acosta was born in Cuba in abject poverty and went on to concur the elite artform. His story is as improbable and enthralling as his dancing.
