EL BLANCO: TALES OF THE MARIACHI
We thought it was superb, brilliant acting by James Cairns. Loved it!
IT WAS AMAZING
Enjoyed the show!
Funny, sad and wise
Really enjoyed the show! Had no idea what to expect but the Ovation award from Grahamstown was enough to convince me to book and I'm very glad I did. Amazing story and performance! Also, it was at least my second visit to POP Art and I found the chairs as uncomfortable as ever. Wouldn't stop me attending but maybe something for the future!
Loved it. James, think about wearing either a "male support" for dancers, (to lose the "panty line") or make the panty line more obvious. A delicious show, beautifully written to showcase some of James' considerable talents.
Very impressive show, and very entertaining. Felt like the plot line was a bit disparate but loved how versatile the actor was and all of the insights, humour and accents. Love coming to watch shows at PopArt!
Excellent show! More please.
more 4.5 than 4, I'd say ~c
I would definitely recommend a viewing! :)
Fantastic! My hubby and i thoroughly enjoyed the performance. James Cairns was superb. Thank you for staging the event & giving us the opportunity of seeing this brilliantly piece!
Wonderful show. Great night's entertainment
You need to fix some of the seats. Somebody was sitting on a broken seat on the front row and had to get up and sit on the floor which interrupted the performance.
Superb show in a fantastic space. Thank you for bringing us such brilliant theatre and keeping "live" alive!
Although the actor was very good, a lot of the "throw away" lines were fast and muttered fast so we missed a few, even though we were in the front row. Still, an enjoyable evening.
El Blanco was very entertaining. I was expecting a funny, bleating sort of play about the woes of white South Africans- I supposed we get conditioned to expecting that. He was great and I really enjoyed the story line and how engaging he was.I love POPART.
It was a brilliant performance by James ! Best I've seen in years. The writing/ script too was formidable and ingeniously clever. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
world class production
James Cairns is sublime
Hugely enjoyable - great performance!!
Excellent show! The acting was brilliant and the story line was gripping. We thoroughly enjoyed it- looking forward to te next one.
Beautiful tale masterfully told. SA theatre at its very best.
James is a wonderful performer with an equally wonderful script. Well done to both the writer and actor.
Fantastic - such an exceptional talent
Simply one of the best shows I have ever seen (multiple times) at POPArt. And I have seen some amazing shows at POPArt. World class writing, world class acting, a triumph. This is a five star review, but it reads like a six...
We loved the show, will be back!
Fantastic performance - funny, energetic, brilliant acting. Well done. All our party of 8 loved it. :)
Great performance! Highly recommended.
An incredible solo performance with a good lesson to tell.
