MINCE AT LANGOUSTINE (article first published : 2001-06-3)

Cape Town's dynamic drag duo Mince returns to the Langoustine Theatre by the Sea for two consecutive weeks from May 30 until June 9 for eight shows only - this time with their hot funky new show Licence to Mince.

Licence to Mince has been inspired by seeing the most recent version of the movie Charlie's Angels as well as an assortment of vintage James Bonds. The overall feel is Sexy (with a capital "S"), definitively stylish and with serious attitude. This production also uses high-tech video clips and slides to add to the already slick and sophisticated feel of the show.

The gorgeous gals also introduce a new character to their repertoire Suzy the Sexy Sorcerer (apparently a really ugly girl who does appallingly bad magic tricks). Suzy is 100% live, real and authentic (no lip-syncing for her!)

Some of the numbers in their new show include: Blind Date by Barbra Streisand; two numbers by soulful seductress Eartha Kitt; Anastacia doing her hit song I'm Outta Love and a Rocky Horror Picture Show number. They open their show with a funked-up version of ABBA's Dancing Queen and end the evening with their show-stealing Back Street Boys duet. They also have two great new songs: Silencer - a sexy new song to their repertoire with a distinct Bond Girl feel and Bob Fossie's version of Big Spender - direct from the current Broadway musical - Fossie - bringing their repertoire right up to date.

Licence to Mince is a celebration of female vocalists from around the world. It features well-heeled dames of deception, Keiron Legacy (Martin) and Lilly Slaptsilli (Clive) - two female impersonators - or drag artists as they are more commonly known. Their super-slick shows have been staged regularly in Durban during the past few years to capacity houses

Early booking is advised through the Lango on (031) 563-7324 or through Computicket. Tickets R120 (includes a quality three-course meal) for all eight performances.
