The Orchid and The Crow (Australia)

A life affirming musical comedy about family, faith and survival.

Daniel Tobias grew up in a Jewish-atheist household.
 In 2004 he found out he had stage-four testicular cancer and went searching for God. Any God. Enter Lance Armstrong, seven-time winner of the Tour de France and legendary cancer survivor.

Reflecting on Daniel’s real life experiences, The Orchid and The Crow is a solo performance: part storytelling, part cabaret, part theatre, featuring original songs from the award-winning writers of Die Roten Punkte. Segueing between rock, pop, and contemporary opera, Daniel effortlessly draws us into the inspiring tale of his almost-death experience.

Warning: Contains adult themes.

★★★★ “Daniel Tobias' Orchid and Crow turns divine vengeance into comedy gold…” THE AGE

★★★★ "Tobias is an intelligent, dynamic and honest performer who is highly entertaining to watch. This show will renew your faith in love, life, and possibly even Lance Armstrong.” CBC CANADA
