6 September: Taste, Tweet & Theatre with Pieter-Dirk Uys

On Tuesday, the 6th of September, the Baxter is hosting its 4th Taste, Tweet and Theatre evening in the theatre foyer from 6:30pm. The event precedes a performance of Pieter-Dirk Uys’ new one-man show, Desperate First Ladies. Superb wines that will present their blends for tasting and sampling include a number of popular cellars from the Darling region.

Pieter-Dirk Uys is an absolute powerhouse of energy, bravery, opinion and humour, and his contribution to the arts and culture have been recognised around the world. The Baxter is delighted to welcome him back for the Cape Town premiere of Desperate First Ladies, his all-new one “man” show.

In Desperate First Ladies, Evita Bezuidenhout graciously shares the stage with a chorus line of other outspoken and iconic women from all walks of life, including Cape Malay DA firebrand Mrs. Pietersen; the first lady of Libya, Madame Gaddafi; Mother Teresa, who is manning the telephone exchange in heaven; the kugel Nowell Fine and Evita’s much-loathed sister and the black sheep of the family, Bambi Kellermann.

The Baxter’s Taste, Tweet and Theatre evenings are hugely popular interactive social media events. Patrons go online during the tastings via their mobile devices to chat, tweet and update their Facebook pages and blogs before and after the show. With this immediate medium, people share their experiences of the wines and the performance while a drop-down screen in the foyer updates audience members with the ongoing Twitter activity surrounding the event.

South Africa’s Most Famous White Woman Tannie Evita Bezuidenhout @TannieEvita who stars in Desperate First Ladies, has close to 10 000 followers on Twitter!

We’d love you to be there. We know that you’ve got a bunch of people following you on Twitter, many Facebook friends and that people are interested in what you say. This is a great night for taste-makers and connectors in the arts world and it’s guaranteed to be a great show.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
