Written and Directed by AMANDA BOTHMA

Musical Director GERMAINE GAMIET


Join Theatre on the Square for “A Marvellous Party” with the best of iconic music by the legendary composers Noel Coward, Cole Porter and Ivor Novello.

The talented Daniel Anderson, known for his mesmerising stage presence and tour de force performance in the recent musical review VINCENT, will return to the Theatre on the Square stage with a new show called MAD ABOUT THE BOYS.

Audiences can expect to be swept away by classic tunes such as “I Get a Kick Out of You”, “Mad About the Boy”, “We’ll Gather Lilacs” and “Anything Goes” among others.

Directed by acclaimed theatre director Amanda Bothma and Musical Director Germaine Gamiet, MAD ABOUT THE BOYS promises to be a visual and vocal spectacle that will leave audiences spellbound.

It’s the roaring 20s! But not all is as carefree as it may seem… indulgent hedonism and lavish parties, where the glitz and glamour of the 1920s are juxtaposed by the haunting pains of the post-World War I era. MAD ABOUT THE BOYS invites you to immerse yourself in the opulence and extravagance of a bygone era, where every party was a spectacle of decadence amidst the lingering shadows of the war’s aftermath.

This show is told through a series of enchanting vignettes, each showcasing the captivating personas of Novello, Coward, and Porter, alongside the timeless melodies that made them immortal. From heartfelt ballads to lively show tunes, MAD ABOUT THE BOYS (BroadwayWorld Award for Best Solo Performance 2023) promises an unforgettable journey through the lives and music of three iconic figures who defined an era of theatrical elegance and allure.

Join Daniel Anderson (vocals) and Paul Ferreira (piano), in an exhilarating revamped version of MAD ABOUT THE BOYS, one that delves deeper into the antics of the entertainment giants while peeling back the layers of the social masks they wore.
