FOURPLAY (article first published : 2003-03-8)

The Backstage Theatre at the Royal Hotel will launch its 2003 theatre line up on March 12 with an elegant cabaret titled Fourplay. After a dark period (theatre parlance for no shows) of over two months, the production features four of Durban’s top female vocalists.

Fourplay promises to be a glamorous all-woman show and is not to be confused with Foreplay, an all-male show due to play Lango’s Theatre.

The show stars Melanie Roberts and Shelley McLean, both currently performing in the hit Classic Carpenters at the Blue Zoo, Karen van Pletsen in her first show at the Backstage Theatre and Kate Bruce. Technical backup will be provided by Shireen James on lights and Janet Walsh on sound. Described as the only “rose amongst the thorns”, Evan Roberts is the musical director.

This dynamic and sophisticated quartet will perform an eclectic mix of songs in piano and voice arrangements. Songs range from U2 to Manhattan Transfer; Marc Cohen to Vanessa Carlton; Robbie Williams to Seal; Frank Sinatra to Alanis Morrisette and much more.

Fourplay opens for a six week run at the Backstage from March 12 to April 18, with performances Wednesdays to Saturdays. Tickets R120 include a three-course meal in true Royal Hotel style and Chef has promised new menus. Bookings can be made on 031 333 6000.
