Heading our way in September is the highly acclaimed international hit production of a tribute show, Tina: Simply The Best, which is set to set the stage alight at the Theatre of Marcellus at Emperors Palace.
The show debuted in Durban at the end of last year, and is now coming to Jozi for a three-week season and the show is set to rock you all the way back to the 1960s.
South African-born songstress, Caroline Borole, will take on the role of Turner in this dazzling two-hour full-scale production. Backed by a world-class live band on stage, she will perform over 15 of Turner’s most popular tracks.
Expect the top hits that had everyone belting their hearts out from one of the world’s most-loved female rock legends over the past few decades, and I will likely be singing along, too!!!
If the hits Simply The Best, What’s Love Got to Do With It, River Deep Mountain High, Proud Mary, Nutbush City Limits, We Don’t Need Another Hero, Jumping Jack Flash, What You Get is What You See, Private Dancer make you want to shake your shimmy, then this is the show for you!
Months of vocal work, dance rehearsals, costume fittings, wig adjustments and character study have gone into raising the show to the level of ‘the definitive tribute’. Mastering and portraying an icon on stage is a difficult task, audiences and media can be critical, so getting it right is important.
The outrageously-confident Borole will be accompanied by four energetic dancers to help create the ultimate Tina Turner concert experience. Borole and her dancers will twist and twirl their way around stage to a live backing band, making this show Simply the Best!
“Tina really puts on a show when she’s on stage, she’s the true essence of ‘a performer’, so when one tries to emulate her you have to make sure you study her – the vocals, the dancing, the walk, the smile, everything – down to a tee,” says Borole.
