MAD ABOUT THE BOYS, is a cabaret, produced by the Wela Kapela Productions company of East London, South Africa, starring Daniel Anderson, accompanied by a 3 piece band comprising of Nathan Johannisen (Piano), Kerry Hiles (Bass) and Geoffrey Lottering (Drums)
MAD ABOUT THE BOYS celebrate the lives of Ivor Novello, the matinee idol, Noel Coward, the quintessential, English gentleman and the American play boy Cole Porter. Think of a certain suave, urbane style that reigned in theatre and the movies during the ’20s and ’30s. Think of cigarettes, smoking jackets and cocktails. Think of cynical epigrams, and sexy, witty, world-weary songs. Think of Cole Porter, Noel Coward and Ivor Novello – they virtually invented this style, The Boys moved in the same café-society circles. They were friends, colleague’s, and yet, rivals!
Join us for the very best of Cole Porter, Noel Coward and Ivor Novello. Amanda Bothma (writer/director) has created a series of little vignettes round each of the Boys and, of course the songs that made them immortal. MAD ABOUT THE BOYS promise to be sheer entertainment.
