It’s a great time to come visit Joburg for a feast of good theatre

Jozi has some great theatre and live shows at the moment. Saw ‘Chilli Boy’ last week. An old play back for a re-run, but missed it last time around- very funny one-man comedy, amazing acting performance. Runs till 6th Nov. Completely different was ‘The Girl with the Yellow Dress’ (again a re-run which first opened at the Grahamstown Festival in 2010) – powerful drama showing at the Market until 11th Dec.  For more reviews see  http://markettheatre.co.za/shows/watch/girl-in-the-yellow-dress Am looking forward to the ‘Kiss of the Spiderwoman’ – the 1st time this 1980s award winning Tony play has been performed in Joburg. On at the  Joburg Theatre for a very short run from 26/10 to 6/11.
