THIS Valentine’s season, you’d do well to catch what has been billed as the most glamourous show of the year, as Ian von Memerty and his wife Vivienne heat up the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre stage with their latest show, Synergy from 14 to 18 February.
And what’s more, the Sun has three sets of double tickets to give away to the opening night performance on Valentine’s Day (14 February).
The ‘King of versatility’ and ‘Queen of dance’ explore glorious partnerships in this dance, comedy musical. Dazzling audiences with talent, glamour, nostalgia and loads of laughter and fabulous costumes from around the globe, beautiful musical arrangements by Debbie Quicke topped off with moody lighting by David Limbert, the show is elegant, exciting entertainment in its purest form.
The Von Memertys share the stage with respected keyboard maestro Roelof Colyn, who was recently in Durban for the hit musical revue, A Handful of Keys. Not allowing Colyn to have all the fun on the keys, Ian will be sharing time at piano. Husband and wife take their journey of 26 years of life’s struggles and creative partnership and bring fresh insight into the Synergy that ignites when two people work as one.
Synergy takes the musical magic of Lennon and McCartney (Yesterday, Hey Jude, Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da), the effervescent joy of the Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, The Aristocats), the glamour of the Gershwin Brothers (I Got Rhythm, Summertime, Embraceable You), the show-business sizzle of Kander and Ebb (Chicago, Cabaret, New York New York), the sophisticated drama of Desiree and Frederick in A Little Night Music (Send In the Clowns, You Must Meet My Wife) and the laughter-filled poignancy of Tevye and Golde in Fiddler On the Roof (Sunrise Sunset, Do You Love Me? If I Were a Rich Man) to create a beautiful, poignant onstage production this Valentine’s season.
The show runs from 14 to 16 February at 7.30pm nightly; Saturday, 17 February at 3pm and 7.30pm and Sunday, 18 February at 3pm. Ticket prices range from R130 to R145, with concessions at R100. Book through Computicket or cash at the door.
