(Excuse me while I name-drop a little ….) As most of you know, I have modelled on the catwalk in Paris and danced at the Moulin Rouge. Mine has been an international, very glamorous, high-octane life but, at the end of the day, the thing that really turns me on is a quirky little cabaret at a small, local venue down the road from home.
And so it is that I am looking so forward to next week’s “brand new South African production’’, Devil Song, which they tell me as “a glittering cabaret of villainous proportions”. Even better is that it “premieres” from March 27 to April 5 down the road, and in a new theatre, the Avalon Theatre.
This what they say:
Inspired by Tony Award-winning Audra McDonald’s song cycles, The Seven Deadly Sins, Devil Song is a delicious new cabaret that’s devilishly good fun.
Presented by Dal Segno Theatre, directed by David Fick and performed by Schoeman Smit, the cabaret includes scenes written by various South African artists exploring themes around the seven deadly sins, including greed, lust, anger and gluttony.
“We have been cooking up something delightfully dark and decadent with Devil Song,” says Schoeman Smit. “Take some meaty themes, a smorgasbord of talented writers, captivating music, songs and a good dollop of fun, and you have an evening of entertaining cabaret to remember!”
Shows nightly at 7h30 in the Avalon Auditorium, Homecoming Centre, Buitenkant Street, District Six, Cape Town.
