My Glugster and I were privileged last week, to attend the media and VIP performance of
at Montecasino’s Teatro.
As we arrived and I fetched my press pack, I heard someone say “Barry’s just arrived…” and turned around to see none other than Barry Ronge! 😀
I’m usually terrible at recognising faces, but as the auditorium started filling up I saw SO MANY FAMOUS FACES! I was really glad when the show started and the lights went down and I could stop playing lookee-loo!
So just ‘coz I CAN do a whole lot of name dropping from last Wednesday’s performance – before I tell you about the actual show – here goes… I had a lovely chat with Barry Ronge after I went up and introduced myself, I had my picture taken with Cito, Ilze Klink and Emmanuel Castis (and went totally fan girl when I was speaking to Cito). Alex Jay got hauled on stage and we spotted Gugu Zulu, Anne Power, JJ Schoeman (whom I have met before), Timothy Moloi, Carol Manana… I could go on but you know how I hate to brag. 😛
Me with Cito
Me with Ilse Klink
Me with Emmanuel Castis
And now onto the show.
I’d seen a snippet on YouTube, so I knew it was nothing I’d ever seen before, but it went WAAAY beyond incredible. My hands were literally sore from clapping when we left!
Could you imagine a contortionist and a break dancer dancing together!? It so worked!
And could you imagine a woman on a ribbon trapeze, performing with an inline skater?!! It was so beautiful, so fluid…
Guys on a pole, trampolining on and off a wall, a juggler, a guy on a stunt bicycle, a girl in a hoop… It was mesmerising!
The show has beauty and artistry for the ladies in the audience, and it has the absolute cool factor for the men!

~~As per my Ladybloggers pledge, I must state that whilst I was gifted two tickets to the show I was not asked or paid to blog or tweet about the show. I must also say a big thank you to Showtime and Montecasino for giving me two tickets to the show, which meant I could take my sweetheart with me!~~
