Joseph Clark Returns to Durban
with “The Music of Queen”
Playhouse Opera: 7pm Fri 17 May & 2.30pm Sat 18 May
Veteran musical theatre King, Joseph Clark, returns to Durban to perform the music which defined his career – The Music of Queen – coming to the Playhouse Opera for two shows only, on Friday evening 17 May and Saturday afternoon, 18 May.
In 1991, in the heydays of Durban’s musical theatre global reign, Joseph Clark together with Sam Marais, Luciano Zuppa and a host of other stars, under the masterful direction of Geoffrey Sutherland made theatre magic with the music of Queen at the Opera which delighted a generation of performers and audiences and inspired a slew of productions, films and revues in its wake.
Joseph Clark returns to Durban, to the very same Playhouse Opera stage to recreate the magic of the music for a whole new generation of music lovers, and to allow for a little nostalgia among those who remember the original.
Now he is back to keep the spirit of Queen’s music alive for a new generation of music lovers. Having performed Queen’s music for over three decades, his show is boasting an extensive song list, including hits like Somebody To Love; Another One Bites The Dust; Under Pressure; You Take My Breath Away; Is This The World We Created; Too Much Love Will Kill You; The Show Must Go On; We Will Rock You; Crazy Little Thing Called Love and of course, Bohemian Rhapsody. Additionally, to the delight of many diehard Queen fans, Joseph, alongside guitar virtuoso Axe Lourens, on his real Bryan May red special, also promise to rock the house with the high energy Dragon Attack and Tie Your Mother Down.
Captivating audiences with his imitable style, charisma and stage presence, Clark spent most of his years performing mainly outside of SA, in The Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Germany and Switzerland, The Middle East, The United States, numerous African countries including South Africa, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana, Malawi and most recently in Freddie Mercury’s birthplace, Zanzibar. 
Born in Amarillo, Texas, he initially trained as a ballet dancer and performed in The United States as a principal dancer, before joining the Performing Arts Companies PACT and later NAPAC at The Playhouse Theatre in Durban. Those who are familiar with Joseph Clark’s prowess will be allowed a little nostalgia, when remembering his masterfully performances not only as a singer, but also as a ballet dancer and actor. 
“Joseph’s the champion, my friend! He’s one of the few around the world who can do the mercurial legendary Queen vocalist justice, with panache, style and the glory that was Freddie Mercury in full roar.” Daily News, Durban.
