The days of Durban being considered as a “poor coastal cousin” and thus being given the miss by top international and local stage acts are over.

A new partnership between marketing ace Renée Burton and comedian Stuart Taylor will see Durban featuring on the billing of big-name stars.

“The time is ripe for collaborative partnerships to leverage the opportunities offered by Durban which can so easily stake its claim as South Africa’s premier entertainment destination. The expertise, networks and synergies brought to the table by Blue Door Theory and Taylor Made Productions working as a collective will be far more beneficial than operating in isolation. We are very excited about our latest project,” said Burton, creative director and owner of Blue Door Theory.

She said collaboration beyond geographical borders is imperative for business sustainability.

“Contrary to popular belief, Durban is a viable business option for live entertainment by top shows from abroad and locally. “Testament to the success of the partnership are two companies from two different cities coming together to create an authentic lifestyle offering catering for the entertainment needs of a discerning market,” she added.

Burton who has more than 15 years’ experience as a seasoned sustainability, marketing and business communications professional said small businesses need to work together to ensure everyone gets a slice of the pie.

For one night only, Blue Door Theory and Taylor Made Productions present the Big 5 Comedy Show featuring resident scratch master, DJ Ready D, alongside comedy heavyweights Jason Goliath, Felix Hlope, Nik Rabinowitz, Stuart Taylor and Schalk Bezuidenhout.

Be sure to save the date - September 7, 2019, at 20h00 at The Globe, Suncoast. Tickets from R150 to R250 pp at Computicket. Book now to avoid disappointment. The show is rated PG 16.
