BRUTAL TUNES FOR HILTON (article first published : 2004-01-23)

Like your romance with a fun twist? Brutal Tunes - described as “a most macabre musical mixture of madness murder & mirth” – wowed Durban audiences and played to sell-out shows at the Hilton Arts Festival.

Response to the show was so overwhelming that the producers have decided to revive the production, kicking off with a Valentine’s Special at the Hilton College Theatre on February 14 at 15h00.

Two of Durban’s best known and well loved theatre personalities, Anthony Stonier and Lisa Bobbert appear in Brutal Tunes which has been specifically designed to highlight their talents and excellent working rapport. It is a music revue filled with comedy, clever (not to mention, brutal) lyrics and outrageous fun.

So much of life is brutal: love, lost love, marriage, the games society plays, parties, liaisons, families, the horrors adults put their children through - after all which child wants a mother “whose face is lifted from its proper place”? … no aspect of life is left unscathed in this brutal take on life.

Directed by Caroline Smart, Bobbert and Stonier are accompanied on piano by the acclaimed accomplished classical musician, Andrew Warburton. He is more than capable of holding his own against his highly energised cast members and presents an entire brutal concerto, despite the concerted attempts of the performers to derail him, adding enormously to the brutal atmosphere!

Tickets R60 (R45 Pensioners). Bookings on 033 383 0126.
