Boys in the Band are one of Australia’s top musical ensembles, and I got to see and meet them! It was opening night, and it was the first time I’ve ever attended an opening night, of anything. We had front row centre seats. It couldn’t get any better!! But it did. The show was incredible! We saw it at the wonderful newly revamped Joburg Theatre, and the venue outdid itself in catering for this diverse show. And yes there is safe paid parking, underground. Go there.

What this show provided for my friend Dawn and I was a chance to be girls again. A chance to remember that once upon a time, we were carefree, we were groupies and we had fun! It’s something I don’t want to forget and I want to carry it forward for the rest of my life. Songs were songs that we grew up to.
A massive thank you to Boys in the Band and also to Joburg Theatre. When you get there, also check out the brand new funky restaurant that has just opened its doors. We had so much fun that Dawn even went twice!! I can’t wait for the Boys to be back in town.
