SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY (article first published : 2000-07-15)

Durban's hilarious theatrical trio The Gee Jays present a re-run of their highly successful Swooners and Crooners at the Langoustine Theatre by the Sea from August 1. The Gee Jays, now celebrating 15 years of teamwork, are well-known for their wacky wit and choice sense of humour.

Breaking away from their usual theatrical madcap style Gary McKenzie, Grant Bell and John Didlick present a delightfully sophisticated production with Swooners and Crooners which takes audiences on a sensuous sentimental journey back to the time when (in their words) "music was music and not the doeff, doeff we hear today!"

Evergreen numbers sung by the likes of Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett and The Platters are interwoven with Gee Jays comic patter. Also featured are songs made famous by Elvis Presley. Neil Diamond, Billy Joel, Roy Orbison, The Beatles, Barry Manilow, Lionel Richie, Wet Wet Wet and Boyzone.

Swooners and Crooners had a successful run at the Langoustine last year and seems set to pull in the audiences again. Tickets at R100 include a three-course meal. For patrons wishing to dine in the Langoustine’s à la carte restaurant beforehand, the cost of the show alone is R60. Tickets at R69 on Tuesdays (Ladies Nights) include a two-course meal. Book through the Langoustine on (031) 563-7324 or e-mail langos@iafrica.com Booking also via Computicket or at http://www.computicket.com.
