Sound Of Music

A Nostalgic, Delightful Presentation for Total Enjoyment By Louw Mulder The Teatro came alive, with the Sound of Music, when this musical opened at Montecasino last week. This run comes after what is believed to have been a hugely successful World Tour, forcing audiences onto their feet in Manila, Singapore, Macau and Colombo. Now, in Johannesburg, the stage production of the World’s most loved musical, ...

Adam: Bewe

Adam: Bewe

Afrikaans, met verwerkings wat jou sal laat glimlag van lekker kry. deur Louw Mulder Ten spyte van al die bewe en skeef-loop van ‘n paar drankies te veel, was daar groot partytjie gehou tydens die vrystelling van Adam se nuutste album, Bewe, wat die afgelope naweek by Weiveld, in Pretoria die lig gesien het. Om die musiek op hierdie album lewendig te ervaar, was alles ...

Carmen

Carmen

A seductive and theatrical feast for the eyes. By David Simmons Celebrating art in South Africa is probably one of the most rewarding pastimes a person can participate in. We not only pay homage to art in its theatrical form, but applaud and honour the bursting and at times overlooked talent our country has to offer. The latest, sumptuous offering from Joburg Ballet brings us ...

Lewensles, of Diep Verbeelding Avontuur? Deur Louw Mulder Gewoonlik, wanneer ek daarop uit is om ‘n resensie oor ‘n film te skryf, word die idees, die sinne, en selfs die woorde van die beoogde stuk al tydens die vertoning by die Premiere duidelik. Maar dan, soos in hierdie geval, word jy getekkel deur ‘n skrywersblok, asof dit veroorsaak word deur ‘n oorlaaiing van emosies en ...

Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Hedwig and the Angry Inch

An Electric and Flamboyant Jolt of Rock and Raunch! by David Simmons Gate69 together with VRT theatrical theatre have once again unravelled this very bold and gutsy story on stage and this time around it is here in Johannesburg. Introducing complex characters to an audience can be a daunting task especially when the themes presented are strong, expressive and at times brutal. However, it is ...

The Color Purple

The Color Purple

A richly woven story of love, friendship and the strong bond of Womanhood. By David Simmons If there was ever a greater time for women to feel empowered in the world and most importantly in South Africa, that time is now! The Color Purple, currently showing at the Joburg Theatre, couldn’t have come at a more auspicious time. Women all over the world, empowered by ...

Bennie Boekfilms en Bouwer Bosch Films bring die Film van die Jaar! deur Louw Mulder Verbeel jou ‘n eg-Afrikaanse produksie, gevul met komedie, aksie, en van ons land se top name in een film, en jy sal vining wakker word, met wat ek van mening is, een van die beste Suid-Afrikaanse vollengte speelfilms van hierdie jaar is. Nie net omdat dit met vyf toekennings by die 2017 Silwerskermfees weggeloop ...

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 ...
