Rock Of Ages

Rock Of Ages

Very Funny, Somewhat Dirty, but Let’s Rock! by Louw Mulder There are only a few things better in life than to leave a theatre production where you have hit the epiphany of sheer entertainment. Taking nothing away from all the other brilliant theatre productions that stunned audiences this year, but with reference to Rock of Ages, now showing at the Lyric theatre in Gold Reef ...

Pinocchio

Pinocchio

Reawakening the magic of an age-old fable by David Simmons I am always in awe of the Joburg theatre, especially how year after year, when the silly season snakes its way through the city, we are treated to another enchanting piece of Pantomime magic! The 2017 offering brings a nostalgic and somewhat meaningful story to life, where we get to experience a rollicking ride of ...

Macbeth, The Adult Panto

Macbeth, The Adult Panto

A Tale Twisted, Sheer Entertainment. by Louw Mulder I often hear all the whines and the moans from Cape Townians and Durbanites who complain about top shows only coming to Johannesburg. However, lately I am constantly seeing marketing and promotional material of quality productions staged in Cape Town, which never get to see the backstage of a Johannesburg theatre. At this moment, I am referring ...

Evita

Evita

Powerful Classic brought to life by Vibrant Modern Cast By Louw Mulder After 39 years, when the Original London Cast took to the stage for the inaugural performance of Evita, I was honoured to attend the opening performance of the same production at the Teatro in Montecasino, by Pieter Toerien Productions and David Ian Productions. Knowing the music very well, but with very little knowledge ...

1925 Band: Eintlik Nogal Baie

1925 Band: Eintlik Nogal Baie

The refined sound of a sibling trio bursts onto the SA Music Scene. By Jaco Lotriet It takes hard work, dedication, focus and an almost uninhibited passion, to compose, arrange and record an album, for any aspiring recording artist. In the cut-throat, make-or-break world that is the music industry, finding your niche is probably one of the most difficult tasks one could possibly hope to ...

A New Age Homage to an Age-Old Classic! By David Simmons The Brothers Grimm fairy tale of the naïve princess who falls into the trap of the evil queen comes to life in the 2017 Joburg Ballet production of Snow White.

Vaselinetjie

Vaselinetjie

Ek is perfek, want God maak nie Foute nie. Deur Louw Mulder Vroeg in die openingstoneel, ontmoet die kyker die ‘n asemrowende mooi sonsopkoms oor die Namakwalandse berge, maar so raak hierdie natuurskoon vinnig bitter-soet as dit die agtergrond skep vir ‘n ma wat lewe gee aan haar baba, en diè net daar los. Die kyker kom aandagtig tot die idee van die tema geroep, ...
