On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Grant Towers about his role in Chicago.
A nightclub singer, a double-murderess, a smooth-talking lawyer and a cell block of sin surrounded by the razzle-dazzle of the world’s sexiest musical soon returns to the stage in Cape Town and Johannesburg! YOU’VE GOT IT COMIN’ as the story of the award-winning Broadway and West End musical CHICAGO unfolds to show-stopping songs including ‘All that Jazz’, ‘Cell Block Tango’ and ‘Mister Cellophane’.
The multi-talented all-South African touring cast, band and crew began rehearsals in Johannesburg in August 2018 ahead of an international year-long tour that began in New Zealand. From the opening line to curtain close – there’s nothing like CHICAGO on stage.
Originally staged in Cape Town and Johannesburg in 2005 and again, owing to popular demand, in 2008 at Montecasino’s Teatro and Artscape, this show has been enjoyed by more than 210,000 theatre-goers. Reviewers and critics alike raved about the show. After eleven years, this sensual, seductive smash hit musical returns to these venues bringing back one of this country’s most successful theatre productions.
Grant Towers graduated with a BEd in Economic and Management Sciences in 2008 and further with a BA Drama in 2010 both from the University of Pretoria. He is the winner of a SAT Mag Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical 2016 for Altyd In My Drome.
