After a victorious stint in São Paulo and a sold-out tour across the nation, Tim Maia Vale Tudo (Tim Maia Anything Goes) continues to delight disco-loving audiences at Copacabana’s Theatro Net.
Actors Tiago Abravanel of telenovela ‘Salve Jorge’ fame and Danilo de Moura bring the legendary father of Brazilian soul and funk to life in the musical written by Nelson Motta and directed by João Fonseca.
With a supporting set of characters that include renowned Brazilian musicians of the likes of Chico Buarque, Jorge Benjor and Roberto Carlos, the show draws from episodes of the life of Tim Maia, as remembered by his friend, Nelson Motta. Motta’s friendship with Maia began in 1969, when they first teamed up to produce an album.
Known as a larger-than-life singer with a powerful voice and a voracious appetite for both food and drugs, Tim Maia is widely credited for introducing Brazilians to American soul, funk and disco. Although his career was marked by a string of hits, like 'Não Quero Dinheiro' and 'Réu Confesso,' the musician with the mighty afro battled drug addiction and a multitude of health problems to which he finally succumbed in 1998. Motta’s award-winning musical production promises audiences energetic renditions of his most popular songs, as well as window to the incredibly tumultous life of this immensely talented icon.
