(Godfrey Johnson)

Godfrey Johnson returns to Durban with a show celebrating some of his favourite artists. An evening of Jacques Brel, Noel Coward, Cole Porter, Leonard Cohen, Kurt Weill and more. The show, which will run at Rhumbelow Tina’s Hotel in Kloof from September 21 to 23, is filled with pathos, humour and a dash of madness.

Come and enjoy this colourful musical journey of poetry and piano. Johnson will perform some favourites such as Brel’s Marieke, Coward’s, Mrs Worthington, Cohen’s Hallelujah and his own original songs.
