BRUTAL TUNES (article first published : 2008-03-21)

The award winning, brutal cabaretBrutal Tunes is back, starring Lisa Bobbert and Anthony Stonier, accompanied by international concert pianist, Andrew Warburton. Bristling with sharp wit and comedy and overflowing with musical ability, Durban audiences should grab the opportunity to enjoy such talent. The production makes a return to Durban for a short season only.

Brutal Tunes was specifically designed to highlight their talents and excellent working rapport. It is a music revue filled with comedy, clever (and brutal …!!) lyrics and outrageous fun. It is mad cap and macabre with a mixture of mystery, murder, mayhem and mirth mixed together for massive ‘musement!!

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.

Brutal Tunes, directed by Caroline Smart - she has been pretty brutal in rehearsals, too - has music by Sondheim, Noel Coward, Tom Lehrer - all masters of the brutal, witty lyric...and there are more lyrics than you can possibly imagine!

Lisa Bobbert and Anthony Stonier will be accompanied on piano by the acclaimed Andrew Warburton, accomplished classical musician and more than capable of upstaging them - after all, he has far more glamorous costumes - providing wonderful music, including an entire brutal concerto, despite the concerted attempts of the performers to derail him and, despite himself, adding enormously to the brutal atmosphere!

Shows take place from April 11 to 13 and again from April 17 to 20 with performances at 20h00 (Thursdays at 19h30 and Sundays at 18h30). The venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner.

Tickets R70. Take along food picnic baskets and braais will be available. There is limited secure parking and booking is essential. A cash bar is available (no alcohol may be brought on to the premises). Rhumbelow Theatre is situated in Cunningham Avenue off Bartle Road.
