Boyleque South Africa


Before the 13th of September 2013, I did not know what Boylesque is and I was introduced to it on Friday the 13th when my friends and I decided to go to Maboneng Precinct for dinner

We rushed through dinner because we were told that it was a comedic show, comedic it was I laughed my lungs out through the entire show.
“BoyLesque” is a tongue in cheek variety show, which pays tribute to 1930’s and 40’s American style burlesque comedy and striptease performances, but with a twist – this revue has a distinct South African flavour. It is a fun journey through a variety of genres and styles of performance from comedy, live singing, ballet and drag, to traditional zulu dancing, vogue and of course, striptease.

Boylesque” stars gorgeous Italian siren Gabriella Cirillo, boy can she sing, she has a very unique angelic voice

Sibu Radebe is also a cast member of Boylesque. One thing I knew for sure before I watched the show is that he dances well, but never in my wildest dreams did I think that he knows Ballet. I made a conscience decision that my daughters are going to take ballet lessons (When I get kids of course). It looked so beautiful and I think for some moments I came out of myself and actually danced


“Boylesque” began its first run at the Foxwood Theatre in February 2013 and has been running in several venues like the Sandton Theatre on the Square, POPart Theatre in the Maboneng Precinct, Cantare at Monte Casino, Casta Diva in Pretoria and the Alexander Upstairs in Cape Town.


The four cast members go through twenty two costume changes in an hour and perform hilarious renditions of iconic numbers like Barry Manilow’s “Copacabana”, Kurt Darren’s “Kaptein”, and Madonna’s “Vogue”. It definitely was an experience I tell you. I had so much fun
