About the Cape Town Show
This Cape Town show, with music by George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Duke Ellington amongst others, is set in the Cotton Club era.
The musical show is both choreographed and directed by Adele Blank.
It features the InSPIRAtions company members in various dance styles with guest artist Amos "Lollicat" Kitlele, formerly from Blank's Free Flight Dance Company, who will also provide the vocal element of the show.
Origins of the Cotton Club
The Show got its name from thefamous night club in New York City that operated between the 20’s and 40’s.
Whilst the chic club featured many of the greatest African American entertainers of the era, such as Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie and Nat King Cole, it also served as a chic meeting spot in the heart of Harlem, at which celebrities such as Mae West and Irving Berlin would appear.
