BRUTAL TUNES (article first published : 2003-11-11)

Brutal Tunes,the smash hit hour-long musical show that played to packed houses at the Royal Hotel’s Backstage in Durban and at the Hilton Arts Festival is to be presented by Music Revival. This will take the form of a fun Sunday lunch entertainment on November 16 in Pietermaritzburg.

This popular cabaret piece is hilarious and sophisticated, containing a darkly touched collection of wicked songs. It stars two of Durban’s top performers, Anthony Stonier and Lisa Bobbert with well-known pianist Andrew Warburton temporarily forsaking his classical repertoire for more popular musical theatre works. Although he does get to play the highly amusing Brutal Concerto.

Brutal Tunes was specifically designed to highlight the performers’ and their excellent working rapport. Directed by Caroline Smart, it is a music revue filled with comedy, clever (and brutal) lyrics and outrageous fun. The madcap and macabre programme features a mixture of mystery, murder, mayhem and mirth. It includes songs by Tom Lehrer and Noel Coward plus many more. Also featured is the delightful Gay Eskimo.

Concert-goers are invited to bring a lunch to enjoy before the concert (weather permitting). There are limited seating areas and tables. The performance itself will take place indoors at approximately 14h00.

Tickets R60 include coffee. The venue is 35 Montgomery Drive, Pietermaritzburg. Booking is essential – e-mail chris@musicrevival.co.za or phone Music Revival on 033 342 3051.
