Wat van ‘n bietjie Afrikaanse kultuur…
Miss Mandy vier met hierdie vertoning haar 33ste jaar in
die vermaaklikheidsbedryf – stoksielalleen ,want haar musikante is ongelukkig nie beskikbaar om haar te begelei nie.Hulle speel wel op die backtrax wat sy in hierdie vertoning gebruik. Dit behoort niemand te affronteer nie,sy gee soos gewoonlik alles in haar siel en dan nog ‘n bietjie.
‘Naby’ bevat al die liedjies wat Strydom volksbesit gemaak het – sy sing in
Afrikaans,Frans en Nederlands en deel stories uit haar loopbaan en lewe.Dit is ‘n intieme ervaring met al die wipplank emosies waarvoor Strydom bekend is – lekker lag en lekker huil,met daardie X faktor wat jou diep,diep raak.
Bestel vanaf ? a' la carté spyskaart, kies ? goeie wyn vanaf ons uitstekende
wynlys, geniet die vertoning, wat gewoonlik tussen 60 tot 90 min duur en kuier daarna so lank as wat jy wil.
