CAFÉ OLÉ (article first published : 2003-07-19)

The dynamic foursome of Carol Trench, Stacey Taylor, Melvin Peters and Bongani Sokhela teams up to present a thrilling comic cabaret that travels the world in search of the ultimate coffee experience.

Having appeared in numerous musicals and supper theatre productions, Carol fronts the popular jazz combo Lounge Act. Stacey Taylor has been seen more recently in plays such as Piaf, No Regrets and Private Lives. Melvin Peters is one of South Africa’s top jazz pianists, earning a Masters degree in Jazz Performance under Darius Brubeck. Having recently appeared in Lady Sings the Blues at the Dockyard Theatre, busy bass player Bongani Sokhela plays regularly with the Melvin Peters Quartet and the Darius Brubeck Band.

Café Olé takes a wild ride through time and space to all the great moments in coffee history. Directed by Michael Broderick, it features items from Monty Python to Prince and styles range from cool swing and hot salsa to hip pop. Songs include Bosom Buddies, Brazil, Baghdad Café, Masochism Tango and Frank Sinatra’s Coffee Song.

Café Ole runs at Lango’s Theatre in Durban North from July 24 to August 10. Shows are Tuesday to Saturday at 20h30 and Sunday at 18h30. Bookings through Lisa on 031 563 7324.
