David has an abiding love for theatre and is looking forward to developing new live performance projects in the future. In particular, he believes that Joburg needs to revitalise its cabaret/revue circuit – and his dream is to contribute lyrics to a new South African musical. His previous theatre work includes:
- Marilyn Live! – a 2-act musical comedy with full cast. Marilyn played in Johannesburg in 2000, with a tour to Durban and East London in 2001. Nominated for 5 Vita Awards, winner of Best Actress for Angela Kilian. Co-written and co-directed with the late, great Lisa Melman.
- Fusion Festival 2012 – a 2 hour concert for Israel’s Independence Day, featuring a 12-piece band and over 100 performers. Although everyone involved was wonderful to work with, directing this show was cat-wrangling at its finest!
- Corporate/Industrial Theatre: wrote several live theatre pieces to promote company initiatives for Ernst & Young etc.
