BRUTAL TUNES (article first published : 2004-03-7)

The popular Kwasuka Theatre in Stamford Hill Road will take on a new look for the return Durban season of the smash-hit supper theatre production Brutal Tunes featuring Anthony Stonier, Lisa Bobbert and Andrew Warburton.

The theatre will be entirely remodelled for this production to resemble a French style café.

Two of Durban’s best-known and well-loved theatre personalities, Anthony Stonier and Lisa Bobbert received consistently high accolades from the critics for their excellent performances. The show opened in the Royal Hotel’s Backstage where it played to capacity audiences for seven weeks. Thereafter, it was sold-out at the Witness Hilton Arts Festival and at the Rhumbelow in Durban. Audiences also enjoyed seeing acclaimed and respected concert pianist Andrew Warburton in a comedy role.

Caroline Smart directs this music revue which is filled with comedy, clever (and brutal!) lyrics and outrageous fun. It is madcap and macabre with a mixture of mystery, murder, mayhem and mirth mixed together for massive ‘musement!! Brutal Tunes includes music by Stephen Sondheim, Noel Coward, Tom Lehrer - all masters of the brutal, witty lyric. Also featured are the brutal tunes of Jerry Herman, Sandler, Eartha Kitt and Sandy Wilson. Andrew Warburton also performs his hilarious Brutal Concerto. Two brutally fun new numbers have been added since the last season: Coward's That is the End of the News and Victoria Wood's Frida and Barry.

Brutal Tunes runs at Kwasuka Theatre from March 11 for a month. Seating will be at tables and audience members are welcome to bring a picnic. No alcohol may be brought onto the premises but the Kwasuka bar is well-stocked. All bookings and enquiries to Sue on 082 882 9869.
