"UMOJA" RETURNS 5TH JUNE 02
The South African musical Umoja, which was forced to close following noise complaints at the Shaftesbury Theatre in February this year, will now return. It will be at the Queens Theatre from 5th June 02 to 31st Aug 02. (Booking is now open!!)
Written by Todd Twala, Thembi Nyandeni and Ian von Memerty, it is a celebration of music and dance featuring 36 young black South African performers. The producers of the show are Todd Twala and Thembi Nyandeni, the force behind an earlier South African hit, Ipi Tombi.
Umoja was well received by the popular press when it opened last November ….. THE STAGE said, “A truly magnificent display of South African song and dance.” THE TIMES said, “The dancing is well drilled, the singing strong and a five-piece band is on the mark.” THE GUARDIAN said, “This celebration of South African music and black spirit breezes into the West End like a breath of fresh air.
