Lo er­ing’s Aunty Merle comes to Jozi

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - CITY -

Co­me­dian Marc Lot­ter­ing’s most beloved al­ter ego, Aunty Merle Abra­hams, sashays onto the stage for the first time in Jo­han­nes­burg with Aunty Merle, The Mu­si­cal from Fe­bru­ary 1, 2019 un­til March 3 on The Man­dela Stage at Joburg Theatre.

Writ­ten by Lot­ter­ing and di­rected by Lara Foot, the show has re­ceived four Fleur du Cap nom­i­na­tions and has al­ready en­joyed two sell­out sea­sons in Cape Town to rave re­views.

Drama un­folds in Bel­gravia Road, Athlone, as Merle’s daugh­ter, Abi­gail, an­nounces her en­gage­ment to her boyfriend Alan. As Merle puts it: “He’s a good look­ing white chap!”

But it’s never smooth-sail­ing in the world of mu­si­cals when Abi­gail’s twisted and cor­rupt ex, Den­ver Paulse, who holds a dodgy top job at the SABC, is de­ter­mined to get her back and if not, threat­ens to re­veal a very dark se­cret which is bound to tear the lovers apart.

Aunty Merle, The Mu­si­cal boasts a tal­ented cast in­clud­ing Lot­ter­ing, Tracey-Lee Oliver as Abi­gail, Paul du Toit as Alan and Louk­maan Adams as Den­ver Paulse. Tick­ets from R145 are avail­able through Webtick­ets and Pick n Pay out­lets. – Cit­i­zen re­porter
