Jonathan Roxmouth returns by huge demand to the Teatro at Montecasino with an even bigger Broadway concert in August 2018.For four performances only, one of South Africa’s most versatile musical theatre stars – Jonathan Roxmouth – takes to the magnificent Teatro stage to perform all your favourite Broadway hits – accompanied by a full 55-piece orchestra.

Jonathan Roxmouth (Evita, The Phantom of the Opera, West Side Story, Jesus Christ Superstar, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Sweeney Todd, Beauty and the Beast, Cats, Sunset Boulevard and Stage by Stage) made SA theatrical history in September 2015 as the first local artist to headline a series of Broadway Concerts entitled From the Footlights. Rapturous audiences packed the Teatro at Montecasino to hear him perform classic Broadway songs backed by an 18-piece Broadway Big Band.
In 2017 he returned to the venue in The Musicals in Concert with a full orchestra as well as an exceptional cast of 20 to perform the famous songs of Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim, Rodgers and Hammerstein and many more well-loved composers.
The great news is Jonathan returns again this year with an even BIGGER show than before featuring all your favourites – the arrangements of these songs have been custom-written to showcase Roxmouth’s vocal versatility and virtuosity to the max. Many songs are also featured on Roxmouth’s latest album entitled My Lloyd Webber. Audiences can look forward to songs from The Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, CATS, Aladdin, CHESS, The Sound of Music, A Chorus Line, Sunset Boulevard, Aspects of Love, Love Never Dies, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and many more…
Says Roxmouth, “Everyone has their favourite musical song, but they have to wait for it during the course of the show. The Musicals in Concert is an evening FULL of those, just without the waiting and performed as you’ve never heard them before with an extraordinary orchestra.”
