Two Pianos Four Hands

Jump to navigation Jump to search

A (1995) Canadian musical comedy play, written and originally performed by Ted Dykstra and Richard Greenblatt. Later productions have used the title 2 Pianos, 4 Hands. [1]


"The two-actor play's central characters are Ted and Richard, two boys who each dream of becoming a famous classical pianist. In the early scenes, each boy learns piano as a solo player, with the other actor taking on the role of the teacher or parent. In later scenes, as the two boys become older and begin competing in music festivals and auditioning for conservatories, they appear directly opposite each other as friends and competitors."
