Diamonds & Dust
Last Saturday, I was privileged to watch Diamonds & Dust, a musical presented at the Barnyard Theatre in Willowbridge, Cape Town. What a joyful emotional rollercoaster ride. We were treated to renditions of Bright Blue's 'Weeping', The Lion Sleeps Tonight, Paradise Road and couple of Johnny Clegg classics, not to mention some Miriam Makeba thrown in for good measure. The song choice was spectacular, the production a peach and the talent on stage astounding. Do yourself a favour grab the last couple of tickets available, pack a picnic basket and go and experience the great music South Africa has produced.(As far as I know this is still the only stage show endorsed by Proudly South Africa) The show's run ends on Saturday the 15th December.
Those of you in the UK and The Netherlands, keep an eye on your local event guides, this production is going to be touring your shores early next year.
