Some desirable reasons to celebrate this month

This month why not pop down a rabbit hole with Alice, swoon to romantic (or nostalgic)  music, watch hilarious hypnotism or enjoy an informative Sunday ramble …

Is there really a better time to feel inspired by stories about love than during the month of love? We think not … which is why we’re so pleased Loving You – Songs from the Musicals is on stage. The music of Broadway is re-imagined in this show with an award-winning cast. Auto & General Theatre on the Square. Until February 15. R100. Details: theatreonthesquare.co.za


Artist. Social activist. A mentor to many South African  contemporary artists. These are fitting descriptions of David Koloane … and now you can take the opportunity to learn even more about his art in David Koloane: Chronicles of a Resilient Visionary. This exhibition promises to celebrate his iconic legacy. Wits Art Museum. Until February 22. Free. Details: wits.ac.za/wam/exhibitions
