Billed as the most glamourous show of the year heads for Durban this Valentine’s season, with Ian von Memerty and his wife, Vivienne hotting up the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre stage with their latest show, Synergy from 14 – 18 February.
The ‘King of Versatility’ and the ‘Queen of Dance’ explore glorious partnerships in this dance, comedy musical. Dazzling audiences with talent, glamour, nostalgia and loads of laughter and fabulous costumes from around the globe, beautiful musical arrangements by Debbie Quicke topped off with moody lighting by David Limbert, the show is elegant, exciting entertainment in its purest form.
The von Memertys share the stage with respected keyboard maestro Roelof Colyn, who recently was in Durban for the hit musical revue, A Handful of Keys. Not allowing Colyn to have all the fun on the keys, Ian will be sharing time at piano!
Husband and wife take their journey of 26 years of life`s struggles and creative partnership and bring fresh insight into the Synergy that ignites when two people work as one.
Synergy takes the musical magic of Lennon and McCartney (Yesterday, Hey Jude, Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da), the effervescent joy of the Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, The Aristocats), the glamour of the Gershwin Brothers (I Got Rhythm, Summertime, Embraceable You), the show-business sizzle of Kander and Ebb (Chicago, Cabaret, New York New York), the sophisticated drama of Desiree and Frederick in A Little Night Music (Send In the Clowns, You Must Meet My Wife) and the laughter-filled poignancy of Tevye and Golde in Fiddler On the Roof (Sunrise Sunset, Do You Love Me? If I Were a Rich Man) to create a beautiful, poignant onstage production this Valentine’s season.
Brilliantly versatile performer, Ian von Memerty takes to the stage during this romantic period with his one true love, Vivienne, his wife of 26 years in their new show Synergy at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from 14 – 18 February.
