CALL ME LEE

Pieter Toerien presents

Jonathan Roxmouth in Call Me Lee

Directed by Ian von Memerty

"Simply grand: a truly five star show with a five star artist at the height of his pianistic powers" Caroline Smart, Daily News

Look out Jo’Burg!  Multi-award winning theatre star Jonathan Roxmouth is back with his new piano show, CALL ME LEE!

Following the success of A HANDFUL OF KEYS, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and most recently, SUNSET BOULEVARD, Roxmouth pays tribute to Mr. Showmanship - Liberace - "Lee" to his friends - in this concert biography with lighting by Denis Hutchison and direction by Ian von Memerty.

In CALL ME LEE, Roxmouth traces the journey of the man who became Liberace through the well-known classics that made him a showbiz icon and popular pianist for more than 40 years. Everything from the Boogie Woogie to the Beer Barrel Polka, Tchaikovsky to Chopin and of course nostalgic hits like "I'll Be Seeing You" and "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows" make up a selection of music that guarantees something for everyone. CALL ME LEE also features some of the most lavish, glittering costumes seen on the Montecasino stage by award-winning designer Lena Olivier worthy of the memory of Mr. Showmanship. Music. Glitter. Laughter. What more do you need for a great night out at the theatre?

One-Woman Farce

One-Woman Farce Written by: Greg Homann in collaboration with Louise Saint-Claire Directed by: Greg Homann Designed by: Sasha Ehlers Lighting by: Oliver Hauser Cast: Louise Saint-Claire   Running time: 75 minutes   Genre: Comedy / Farce   The multi-award-winning actress, Louise Saint-Claire, has teamed up with writer-director Greg Homann (Standard Bank Young Artist of the year for Theatre) in creating this hilarious one-woman play. Saint-Claire plays all the characters including a bonkers granny, a "like, whatever" princess who only talks in SMS speak, and a stuttering adolescent trying to understand this zany household. The Hodgkins family home try to adapt to the arrival of Granny, a spirited woman who is young at heart and who appreciates an early morning brandy to get the day started. If you want a good laugh created by a duo at the top of their game, then don't miss this inventive and wacky comedy! This new South African play premiered at the National Arts Festival in 2012 where it won a Standard Bank Ovation Award. At the Witness Hilton Arts Festival in 2013 it was a sell-out hit! "This show is impossible to giggle at; belly laughs are the default response." - BRUCE DENNILL (The Citizen, 08 July 2012)
