  1. I watched this show in Johannesburg about 4 times can’t get over it, the music and dance absolutely blew me away everytime, now with the new cast and promotions I would really love to see how they define their characters because now we have seen what the previous actors did to make us feel their emotion, and I would really love to see the two different ways of the actors to portray and emotion of fear for example.. It’s South African productions like this that make us young thespians wanna work hard and build the theatrical part of the entertainment industry to higher levels.

  2. Doesn’t hurt to reply. If anyone cannot make it, I would like a ticket. This is really cool I didn’t know we did one of these in Cape Town. Man I would really love to go.
