Jonathan Roxmouth exchanges Borge at Rhumbelow for his new show.

Due to an unexpected retraction requested from Borge Productions Inc, Jonathan Roxmouth’s one man show Back to Borge has not been able to tour to Durban as advertised.

However, Jonathan Roxmouth will still appear at Durban's Rhumbelow Theatre from January 22 to 24 as well as January 29 to 31 with his new show entitled In Black & White. In it, he shares a personal semi-biographical take on showbiz life with the audience through songs, sketches and backstage stories that have held special significance for him.

The programme is jam-packed with dazzling piano prowess, a vocal tour de farce in his Phantom Of The Opera in 10 Minutes and Performer's Pandemonium as well as hysterical antics inspired by Tom Lehrer, Peter Sellers, Ronnie Barker and Rowan Atkinson. With songs like Being Alive, Without A Song and On the Boards, Jonathan shares his triumphs, flops and dreams with the audience. All of these culminate in an evening of no holds barred entertainment in its purest form from one of South Africa's leading stage performers.

Shows take place on Fridays and Saturdays at 20h00 and Sundays at 18h30. The venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner. Tickets R80. Take along food picnic baskets and braais will be available. There is limited secure parking and booking is essential. A cash bar is available (no alcohol may be brought on to the premises). Rhumbelow Theatre is situated in Cunningham Avenue off Bartle Road. Booking is through Computicket or contact Roland on 031 205 7602 (h) or 082 499 8636, email or visit
