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 ...

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.

King Kong

King Kong

A reawakening of South Africa’s rich history by David Simmons Let’s reflect for a few moments and take a brisk walk down memory lane. It’s 1959 Johannesburg. Sophiatown is a melting pot of culture, vibrancy and not forgetting the impenetrable sounds of Jazz. People come and go, the streets are bustling in true 1950’s style and the gossip at the local bus station imbues a ...

Calling Me Home

Calling Me Home

South African Talent delivers Superb Original Musical by Louw Mulder The Nelson Mandela Stage at the Joburg Theatre made history when it staged the World Premiere of Calling Me Home, presented by Shy Music. This production, 100% local, is one of the finest gems ever produced on an SA Stage. It weaves different cultures, different musical genres, into one classical masterpiece. Based on her own ...

Big City, Big Dreams

Big City, Big Dreams

Ballet meets its Modern Match By Jaco Lotriet A lot has been said recently about collaborations and the effect it can have on the power of the final product. This theory has yet again been proven on the Mandela Stage of the Joburg Theatre when Joburg Ballet collaborated with Vuyani Dance Theatre and Moving Into Dance Mphatong to create the energetic, vibrant and commanding dance ...
