Len-Barry Simons will be back on stage at the Alexander Bar in the Wessel Pretorius-scripted, Psalter, an Afrikaans cabaret that debuted at the intimate Mother City theatre venue last year.
Psalter takes its name from the book of Psalms and is a collection of growing-up memories of a Gaga worshiper, a disciple of Nina Simone and an envoy of the moon in kitsch angel wings. It is also an ode to three sisters, Greta, Joan and Bettie, each named after a silvery goddess, trying to cherish a child through the changing seasons. Christopher Petrie serves as the accompanist for the show, which runs from 4 – 8 June.
Also on offer at the venue for fans of local musical theatre performance are two burlesque revues, (Her)Story on 31 May and Fetish and Feathers on 14 June as well as a tribute show to Aretha Franklin from 4 Tons of Fun on 1 June.
Bookings for all of these productions can be made online at The Alexander Bar, Café and Theatre’s website. As usual, tickets bought online are on sale at a discounted price.
