Review: Tap Dogs

Review: Tap Dogs

High-Adrenaline, Full-Voltage Tap Tour kicks off in SA! by Louw Mulder After kicking myself in 2013 for only seeing the show once, I was delighted to have learnt that Dein Perry’s Tap Dogs would return to South Africa this year, to showcase the very best in Tap at Montecasino’s Teatro as well as a limited run in Cape Town. This week, I had the privilege ...

From Bloemfontein to Broadway

If you’re good to Betty, Betty… still won’t be good to you! By Louw Mulder Late in 2016, we ran a story on Menopause, a successful drag show presented by the Beefcakes franchise, which is still running every Friday night at their Illovo restaurant. Now, almost two years later, with the new Burger Bar in the chain which opened in Pretoria, the Dare-to-Drag and Love-to-Love ...

Eerste Ivan Botha Film bring ‘n Aksie-Drama oor Innerlike Genesing. deur Louw Mulder Ons almal weet hoe krities ons Afrikaner mense kan wees, en as dit kom by hierdie spesifieke onderwerp, moet ek maar erken dat ek self skuldig was. Baie van ons het gedink dat die sukses van Pad na Jou Hart en Vir Altyd die norm gaan wees van ‘n Ivan Botha en Donnalee Roberts ...

Review: Katy Perry’s Witness The Tour

Review: Katy Perry’s Witness The Tour

Perry Performs in Perfect Pop Production! by Louw Mulder I am all for the underdog. More so, am I all for being proven to be wrong, especially if I get to see how wrong I can be about people, and stand amazingly surprised to have my eyes opened. When I initially heard about Katy Perry bringing her Witness The Tour production to South Africa, my ...

Review: Cartoon Network Live

A World Opened Up for the Little Ones! Caroon Network may be one of the first channels that has been viewed by millions of viewers when DSTV started their digital satellite service, but now, kids in Cape Town and Johannesburg also had the chance to see some of their favourite characters live on stage, when Cartoon Network Live came to the Teatro in Montecasino. The stage is ...

Review: Fire & Ice

Review: Fire & Ice

A double act feature that will have you hooked by David Simmons It’s very rare we get to witness two completely different genres of dance in one very exciting and ambitious evening. Fire an Ice, a befitting name for two contrasting works, opened at the Joburg Theatre to mixed emotions. Diehard classical Ballet enthusiasts will revel in a gorgeous presentation of Act 3 of Raymonda, ...

Nuwe Fliek gebruik al die Trix om Teatergangers te laat Thys voel.  Deur Louw Mulder Daar word deesdae baie goeie dinge gesê van hoe die Afrikaanse Filmbedryf blom, deur kwaliteit, lekker-kyk films op die grootskerm te bring. Selfs die verseidenheid van genres word genoem, en net so het die nuwe rolprent van Bouwer Bosch Films en die Film Factory, Thys & Trix glad nie teleurgestel nie. ...

‘n Eg Kaapse Riller, en Niks Minder Nie! deur Louw Mulder In een van haar treffers in die 80’s, sing Carike Keuzenkamp die woorde: “Dis ‘n land van kleure en klank, dis ‘n land van oorvloed en dank, dis ‘n land waar almal na strewe… Hierdie land bied almal sy deel…” Dit is hierdie milieu van Trots Suid Afrikaans, die gevoel van patriotisme vir hierdie ...
