Review: Heartbreak and haunting music from VINCENT – HIS QUEST TO LOVE AND BE LOVED
February 28, 2023

I’ll start off by saying wow! I had goosebumps from the very beginning, all the way through. Vincent van Gogh is one of my favourite painters and this is largely why I was so excited to seen VINCENT – HIS QUEST TO LOVE AND BE LOVED when I first saw it advertised last year.

Review: CINDERELLA at the Artscape
February 9, 2023

OK, so you don’t go to see CINDERELLA for the plot. What you do want to see is all of the gorgeous costumes, the brilliant set and the dancing to an incredible score. If you pick the right performance, you also get the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra playing live as the dancers move on stage. It all comes together in quite a magical moment.

Review: HOLD STILL at the Baxter Flipside Theatre pushes you to ask if you really are a good person
November 16, 2022

HOLD STILL holds up a mirror and quite deftly questions whether or not you’re as good a person as you think you are. It’s a jarring question to be faced with and the four characters on stage are left reeling in the wake of getting their answers.

Review: THE UNLIKELY SECRET AGENT is back on in Cape Town at the Baxter

This run of THE UNLIKELY SECRET AGENT brings with it some new energy in the form of two new cast members. It’s quite exciting to get to see the same play, which is still fairly fresh in my memory, with new faces and new ideas for characterisation. It must’ve also been a fun challenge for the existing cast members to work with new people.

Review: British reserve hides broken hearts in BETRAYAL at the Artscape
October 24, 2022

It felt to me like the play moved in gasps. The characters and the momentum of the play seemed to hold still like they were holding their breath, and then there’d be a rush of movement and emotion as if everyone was gasping for air before holding it all in again.
