(Jonathan Roxmouth)

Jonathan Roxmouth’s Elton John Cabaret - IN SPITE of Covid – titled We’re Still Standing runs at Rhumbelow Theatre in Durban from May 21 to 23, 2021.

After playing the title character in the world tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera, Jonathan Roxmouth is home in South Africa on a break before he dons the mask once more.

Before leaving, he will be deliberately celebrating life during the most tumultuous period in recent history. Armed with a piano and a stack of timeless songs by Elton John, he will be singing, playing and having a ball in front of a live audience once more.

Returning audience members can expect such perennial hits as Daniel, Crocodile Rock, Rocket Man, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, I'm Still Standing, Your Song and a few more surprises.

“Join Jonathan for LIVE performance in front of a LIVE audience in a real LIVE theatre and thumb your nose at the virus that will not get us down,” says Rhumbelow Theatre!

We’re Still Standing runs at Rhumbelow Theatre in Durban from May 21 to 23, 2021, with performances on May 21 at 19h30 and on May 22 at 15h00 and 19h30. (THE SUNDAY PERFORMANCE IS SOLD OUT)
