Filled with pride!
Sep 2020
From first utterance to its final powerful climax, we were enraptured. Cathy Specific and the Trolley Dollies were their usual, exceptionally savage and brilliant selves. A musical tweet indeed it was, bringing to life the hardships of lockdown, the fickle nature of social media, the joy of friendship, and the sweet satisfaction of a well-earned “I told you so.” The trio traversed a wide genre of musical genres with something for everyone - although I confess the finale was so incredibly powerful and left me with an overwhelming sense of pride at being a South African. Girls, you made us laugh; you made us cry; you made us happy; but most of all, you make us proud. Well done, Gate69 - you never fail to deliver with aplomb and grace (and a healthy helping of honest reality for good measure).

It was so nice to see the ladies back in full swing after 6 months lock down. I have seen every show they have put on and I always have a great time. We were 13 people and 9 bottles of wine later it was a real party. Gate 69 is a must for locals and Tourists.

The cast consists of three each with phenomenal voices. No lip sinking at all. The entire script written and directed by cast members. This show is a must for locals and for tourists. I have seen every show and will definitely be back.

EVEN BETTER THE SECOND TIME AROUND
Feb 2020
I wrote about Gate69’s current performance ‘Three Little Pigs’ 3 months ago and so good was it that ET and I went again, this time taking ‘virgins’ along to be inducted into a performance of a lifetime – and they raved about it! In fact, for me a second time was even better, as I could catch some of the throw-away lines and jokes I’d missed (from laughing) the first time around. Once again Cathy Specific (aka Brendon) and threesome – always titillating! - are bringing back, after 10 years, by popular demand ’Non-Specific’, a musical about THEIR story. Included in the programme is a 20-minute 80’s medley which is sure to rock the rafters. Call 021-035 1627 / 0781 589 2917 or email info@gate69.co.za and take my advice: book now as the theatre fills up quickly. After this they’re headed for the City of Gold where they’ll perform ‘The Trolley Dollies’, so buckle your seat belts and enjoy the ride! The thing I love most about this group of performers is how much they enjoy what they do; I am also hugely impressed by their PR in that, after every performance, patrons will be contacted as a follow-up and be asked by Brendon himself, ‘Did you enjoy the show?’ Now that’s professional.

Cabaret entertainment at its best
Feb 2020 • Friends
Another yet unbelievable night at Gate 69 - amazing cabaret show. From the script to the poignancy of the content with light and shade - amazing. Great food. Comedy and first class performances from the 3 guys all a star in their own performances. The Solos were knockout - this could be the best kept evenings entertainment experience ever - if you like under a rock !!!! Go have fun.
