Paris Amour - Danièle Pas­cal

CHARIS­MATIC singer and play­wright, Danièle Pas­cal cel­e­brates her 50-year an­niver­sary in show busi­ness with this brand new show Paris Amour. She pre­sents a brand new show fea­tur­ing the mu­sic of Edith Piaf, Jac­ques Brel, Eartha Kitt, Mar­lene Di­et­rich, Frida Boc­cara and other de­lights. She is sup­ported on pi­ano by award-win­ner Liza Jou­bert, a mu­si­cian in a class of her own. It prom­ises to be an un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence. Tick­ets from R150, 6.30pm, Lucit Restau­rant, Ri­eton­dale, Pre­to­ria

Tor­tured Soul

WITH 100% live mod­ern, deep, soul­ful house mu­sic that prides it­self on be­ing freed from the DJ booth, Tor­tured Soul is one of the worlds most groove-cen­tred acts. With a sound rem­i­nis­cent of neo-soul groups like Jamiro­quai or Brand New Heav­ies, it is also deeply sat­u­rated in the con­tem­po­rary fresh­ness of house pur­vey­ors like Joe Ne­gro, Kenny Dope, Soul Clap and Dis­clo­sure. Loved and revered by South African au­di­ences through word-of-mouth and strong ra­dio play, this is one show that Afropoli­tans will not want to miss. Tick­ets from R200, 8pm, The Lyric Theatre, Gold Reef City

Evita - The Mu­si­cal

PIETER To­e­rien and David Ian present the orig­i­nal West End and Broad­way pro­duc­tion of Tim Rice and An­drew Lloyd Web­ber’s iconic mu­si­cal Evita. Web­ber and Rice’s seven-time Tony Award-win­ning mu­si­cal Evita charts the ragsto-riches rise of the First Lady of Ar­gentina, who won the love of her coun­try­men af­ter mar­ry­ing mil­i­tary leader-turned-pres­i­dent Juan Peron. Set in Buenos Aires be­tween 19341952, the mu­si­cal fol­lows Eva Duarte Peron on her pas­sion­ate and tragic jour­ney from her humble be­gin­nings as a fa­ther­less child to am­bi­tious ac­tress to the most pow­er­ful woman in Latin Amer­ica and, even­tu­ally, to a saint-like fig­ure af­ter her death from can­cer at age 33. Evita stars Jonathan Rox­mouth (Grease, Beauty and the Beast, Phantom of the Opera, Sun­set Boule­vard, Sweeney Todd) as Che and Emma Kingston (In the Heights, Les Misérables), who has been per­son­ally cho­sen by An­drew Lloyd Web­ber, Tim Rice and Hal Prince to play Eva Perón. Robert Fin­layson makes a wel­come re­turn to the stage as Juan Peron. Tick­ets from R150, 8pm, Mon­te­casino
