After her recent hit production, The Bread The Porridge And The Mix Masala, Melanie Kisten presents Who’s The Boss??? - a lively new dance and comedy musical, with a twist in the tale.

This slick production is about three best friends who are bored in their marriages. They find pleasure in card games while meeting to discuss their troubles. A fourth friend invites complications by introducing the idea of having extra-marital flings. They are tricked into believing they have found a happy relationship outside of their marriages, only to discover their perfect lives are turned upside down. The show will appeal to all ages, and is a rollercoaster ride of suspense and betrayal - with emotionally-charged, high energy dance sequences by students of the Melanie Kisten Dance Academy (MKDA).

Who’s The Boss??? stars Melanie Kisten, Lyle D Chellan, Narusha Chetty, Kubeshan Naidoo, Mayeshini Parusaram, Desiree Kisten - and in their debut performances – Kyle Pillay and Krishna Subrayen.

“This group of talented actors bring a magical and creative blend to the stage, and it’s been an absolute pleasure to work with such a dynamic team,” says Kisten, who has been in the entertainment industry for 22 years, and who believes in pushing her performers to explore their hidden talents. “This year, our audiences can expect some special surprises that are sure to leave them spellbound. Turning actors into dancers, dancers into actors, and now moving on to new-found talents is sure to keep the audiences delighted.”

Who’s The Boss??? runs at Sibaya’s iZulu Theatre near Durban from November 2 to 4, 2018. Tickets R130 booked through Computicket (November 3 & 4 are already sold out). Limited tickets left for the November 2. So grab those tickets before it’s too late!
