SHINDE OF TATTU GETS LEAD ROLE IN ROMANTIC COMEDY
Girl group Tattu’s lead singer Angela Mwandanda plays the lead character in a theatre production that opened at the Phoenix Theatres dubbed Romantic Comedy.
The witty play by Bernard Slade tells the story of Jason (George Mungai), a successful co-author of romantic comedies, who is about to marry a society belle. Enter Phoebe (Angela Mwandanda) a mousy schoolteacher and budding playwright and Jason acquires a talented, adoring new and young collaborator. They enjoy fame and success for ten years when suddenly Jason’s world falls apart with his wife threatening to divorce him and Phoebe marries a journalist and moves to Paris.
Jason goes into decline until the re-entry of the now very successful Phoebe.
George Mungai directs the play and the cast includes Angie Musira, Crystal Mbuga, Titus Kuria and Cympkin Leeharve.
