So today, without warning and not according to the schedule, the Catalina Theatre was plunged into darkness 15min before The Princess & the Frog was due to begin.
And, so, we improvised. I informed the audience that, if they were willing to have fun with us, we would go on with the show regardless.
We opened the theatre door curtains to let in as much sunlight as possible, moved the set forward to catch the light.
I dressed as a fairy - and stood to the side reading the narration, I sang the dance songs, while Sboniso Alex Msimango (dressed as a fairy as well) played drums.
A HUGE well done to the cast for a beautiful performance!! The audience enjoyed every moment as did I.
Well done my darlings, Eskom didn't win this time!!
