TO THE OTHER SIDE (article first published : 2004-09-13)

The Doors To the Other Side is a powerful and compelling musical biography on the life and times of the legendary Jim Morrison. With his early death, Morrison is described by some as a voluntary victim of the destructive forces in pop culture. Some 30 years on, his story still holds great fascination and his reputation is even greater now than in the heyday of his group, The Doors.

Produced by Stephen Woodroffe, written by Tanya van der Walt and with musical direction by Burton Naidoo, the show features the talents of Cedric Vandenschrik and Quincy Fynn, backed by four of the country's top musicians.

To the Other Side aims to highlight both the good and bad aspects of Jim Morrison's troubled life, taking audience members on a journey through his drug and alcohol addictions, lewd conduct, love affairs, off-stage persona and his half-withdrawn, half menacing, exhibitionist and wholly unforgettable live performances.

Performances take place from September 15 to October 10 at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre. Tickets between R65 and R85 available at Computicket. Further information from the theatre on 031 260 2296.
