28th October – 15th November
Back in South Africa, after yet another unbelievable World Tour, the cast of DOO BEE BOOBIES will launch their 21st Anniversary Season at the Auto & General Theatre on the Square, Sandton. Having had an incredible response to their outrageous drag show, touring across the globe (including Margate, KZN), the cults are back with a vengeance! The show has a whole plethora of new international acts that they have found along the way and managed to coerce as part of their ‘coming of age’ celebratory season!!
Grown men in pink tights, Merkins and lashings of coq……feathers? It is the all-male, all-madness musical cult revue DOO BEE BOOBIES, which returns to whoop it up in Sandton during October & November 2014. That’s right – this infamous cult favourite is returning to our stages to show all the young whippersnappers how true-blue comedy revues should be done. That is, with tongue firmly in (butt) cheek!
Daphne Kuhn is proudly presenting (and blushing at the same time), this grand comeback season of this “very, very expensive all-singing, all-dancing, all-male revue” at the Auto & General Theatre on the Square, Sandton from 28 October to 15 November, for 3 weeks only!
Screen and stage veteran ROBERT WHITEHEAD will be reminding audiences that there’s more to him than villainous wheeling and dealing, and you can also see fellow soapie star STEPHEN VAN NIEKERK (who has a worrying tendency to take his kit off on stage) in some tantalisingly compromising positions…Singer, dancer, actor, musician and “notorious stripper” TONY BENTEL, will dazzle with his exhibitionist showbiz flair. And let’s not forget celebrated choreographer and performer extraordinaire MARK HAWKINS – he of Fantastic Flying Fish Dance Company fame – who, together with sensationally supple dancer KINGSLEY BEUKES, will be joining in the cultish silliness, while ensuring that the studs on stage don’t trip over their tutus.
The 21st Anniversary season of Doo Bee Boobies keeps the best of the original show, while adding some new, hysterical and (so they tell us) death-defying acts to make it the most-must-see cult show of 2014. Expect zany musical sketches and prepare for a helping of saucy satire that’s anything but a drag, you cults! Grab some friends, leave the mother grundies at home and settle down for a riotously funny ride that sends up popular culture with a naughty wink.
What the critics have said:
“The Boobies are a lot of things but they are not your usual drag queens”
– Adrienne Sichel – 10 August 2010, Star Tonight
“There are images in this cabaret-style revue that no amount of scrubbing will ever erase from your brain… a monumentally rude show that confuses your face: your eyes don’t always want to look, but you can’t help smiling”
– Bruce Dennill – 10 August 2010, Citizen
“Old, fat, tired & talented!….Boeps bourrée. Bare buttocks wobble. Waistlines sag…..No question: Doo Bee Boobies is the trashiest, tackiest, funniest show in town. Gotta love it” – Adrienne Sichel – 11 August 2010, Star
“It’s outrageously rude, but it’s also as funny as it gets and clean of moralising and message-bearing; it takes itself seriously and attest to the sheer skill of performance brilliance blended with roll-on-the-floor laughter”
– Robyn Sassen – 13 August 2010 SA Jewish Report
“Musical sketches range from zany to bizarre, to oh-my-gawd-they-can’t really-be-doing that….Everything is over the top, and they do tacky very, very well……The show is never a drag….Done well, toilet humour can be extremely funny”
– Neal McKenna – 15 August 2010 Sunday Independent
