London Road


Happy Easter everyone! I have had such an amazing long weekend - and it's not over yet... After going out for two nights in a row, I opted to have a me-day yesterday and slow the pace down a little.

Yesterday evening I headed to the intimate Kalk Bay Theatre to watch London Road, a play written by my good friend; award-winning playwright Nicholas Spagnoletti. It was so worth the long drive, the show is so amazing and I couldn't be prouder of him. I have such talented friends.

On that note, the play is about friendship. The very different challenges that the two characters face ultimately leads to an unlikely friendship that is incredibly heart-warming. Robyn Scott is fantastic and funny in her role as Rosa, and the absolutely beautiful Ntombi Makhutshi delivers a great performance as Stella. The show is directed by acclaimed director Lara Bye. The production is simple, and driven purely by performance. The name of the game here is talent, and everyone involved clearly brought a large slice of it to the table.

You must see this play if you get a chance. I haven't enjoyed a theatre production this much in a while. Visit www.londonroad.co.za for more info.

Music of the Moment: It's been a while since I shared some music with you all... I am keeping it local this time. I have always loved Thembi Seete, she has such an amazing personality and spirit. Just got my hands on her latest album, Music Is My Life, and despite some of its juvenile moments, I am loving a lot of the tracks. As always she has collaborated with some amazing producers. It's a mix of House, Pop, Kwaito, and R'nB. The hit single 'Free' is probably my favourite, but I am also loving her new single, 'Get Down and Lose It' ft Denim - give it a spin kids.
