Equus

Equus

A Raw, yet Intense Manipulation for the love of the Stage. by Louw Mulder During the last 12 odd years, I have written ample reviews about entertaining theatre shows that effortlessly tell the story, requiring no effort from the patron to understand the subject matter. But this is certainly not the case with Peter Shaffer’s Equus, which I saw this weekend at Pieter Toerien’s Montecasino ...

Skemerson

Skemerson

‘n Film wat bevestig dat dit is als ok. deur Christa Steyn Om ‘n film te maak wat geestesversteurings aanspreek is ‘n brawe ding om te doen, maar dit het akteur en aanbieder, Pietie Beyers, nie ontmoedig om sy eie ervaring van obsessief-kompulsiewe versteuring in ‘n draaiboek en film te omskep nie. Skemerson, wat dus deur ware gebeure geïnspireer is, vertel die verhaal van ‘n jong ...

Review: Seussical the Musical Jr

Rhythm, rhyme and rapturous laughter guaranteed during the holidays. By Jaco Lotriet With the school holidays now in full swing, one cannot wonder whether parents are dreading this break, or embracing it? While Johannesburg offers a myriad of different entertainment options for both young and old, serving as a most welcome reprieve from boredom, one entertainment option seems to be overlooked by most families: The ...

Bryan Ferry in South Africa

Ferry’s Fantastic Flair Wows SA Audiences! by Louw Mulder A live concert with a well-known act is an experience very seldom to be forgotten. But a concert where the artist has the ability to take you through a mosaic of memories, is customarily more memorable, mainly because of nostalgic value, making the experience priceless.
