Hot in the City Will Make a Festive Encore at The Lyric.

Gold Reef City is thrilled to announce the return of its critically acclaimed production, Hot In The City, to The Lyric Theatre following hundreds of requests to bring it back. From Sunday, 16 December 2018, guests can once again enjoy the show, updated with a dash of festive fun.

The hour-long musical extravaganza, directed and produced by Jared Mackenzie, stars multi-talented singer and actress, Bianca Le Grange and stage veteran Gary Burts. The duo will be belting out an assortment of local tunes and timeless classics from artists ranging from Bryan Adams to Wham!, along with big Hollywood and Bollywood hits as well as Festive song. They will also be accompanied by 12 incredible dancers in dazzling garb, amazing sets and stunning choreography.

About Bianca and Gary:
Bianca's music career was formed around a lifelong focus on entertainment, including long-term and dedicated training. But what boosted her to the big time was the mixed blessings of the reality TV show, Idols (SA) 2002. This saw the release of four albums and several of her own live shows. She presented the music show 'One' on SABC 1 and was the opening act for three international shows featuring Alicia Keys, Beyoncé and Usher.

Her first lead role in theatre was in Janice Honeyman's Pantomime Cinderella 2004 and Snow white 2008. She then won a Naledi award for her astounding performance in David Kramer's Blood Brothers 2013-2014 and played Anita in the smash hit musical 'West Side Story' for which she was nominated for a Fleur Du Cap 2015.Bianca has done major musical productions such as Madame Zingara 2015, District 6 'Kanala'2016 and has played the Narrator in Pieter Torien's Joseph And the Amazing Technicolor dream coat 2016.

With over 25 years in the industry, Gary is no stranger to the spotlight having toured with Ozila, Shell Road To Fame winner Desire Baird (now Keenyia), Kreeson and Ricardo & the Syndicate Sisters, before jetting off on a 12 year international tour. But there is no place like home. Returning to S.A, Gary dominated the stage in over 14 extravaganza shows at various entertainment resorts throughout the country. Whilst not on stage, Gary is in studio composing music for TV, radio and other artists. His credits include, MarcAlex, Blondie, Lucky Dube, Brenda Fassie, Bones Delight and Cecil Mitchell.
