A TWIST OF BROADWAY (article first published : 2005-05-15)

The second season to open at the new 240-seater Heritage Theatre venue at the Hillcrest Heritage Market will be A Twist of Broadway which will open on May 17 for a month-long season.

The star cast will include David Dennis, television personality and award-winning stage performer who was last seen in Durban in Far from the Madding Crowd as well as Karen Van Pletsen, who appeared in the same production and is last year’s winner of Best Female Vocalist 2004 for Lady Sings The Blues.

Also appearing are Clive Gumede (former Pop Idol) and Nonthando Ngubane ("Serious" diva and star of Nunsense), accompanied by a four piece band featuring Bongani Sokhela, Sean Petersen, Josh Beechey and Burton Naidoo (who has done the arrangements) with creative input from David Gouldie.

"If you love Musical Theatre this is the perfect show for you, but if you hate it, even better!" says Karen van Pletsen. "A Twist of Broadway promises to entertain not only the die-hard musical fans, but also those first time listeners ready to explore the fanciful world of musicals."

The musical selection promises to be vast including excerpts from well-known shows such as: The Phantom of the Opera, Chess, Cats, Little Shop of Horrors and Les Misèrables. It will also include numbers from some of the fabulous international productions as Rent, The Producers and The Lion King. Some will be performed as expected - straight and sweet- while others will be parodied, "twisted" and spiced with swing!

A Twist of Broadway runs from May 17 to June 19. Performances Tuesday to Saturday at 19h00 for supper with the show at 20h30 (Sunday 12h30 lunch for 14h00 show). Tickets R140 include a two-course meal and show ticket. Please note there is a special separate pudding la carte menu. Bookings: 031 765 4197.
