The man behind 'The Man in the Mirror' - MJ tribute show returns to CPT

Fans of the late Michael Jackson are moonwalking their way to the Artscape Theatre in Cape Town to relive some of their music hero's greatest hits.

The globally-acclaimed tribute show starring Kimberley-born Dantanio Goodman is back in Cape Town and Cape Talk's Sara-Jayne King, caught up with the star of the show.

You've gotta dance from the heart and Michael Jackson was all about feeling.

Although Dantanio is keeping mum about his exact age, he admits that he's been performing as the King of Pop for more than two decades, and says his obsession with the late star began at the tender age of nine.

I'd say more than 25 years I've been studying Michael, and if you've been doing it for as long as I've been doing it, you reach a point on stage where you don't think anymore.

But how do they keep the show fresh, particularly for those fans who return to see the show year after year?

We change up the choreography, new entrances, that sort of thing. As well as the set list - we try to keep that fresh. We have received a few requests of this song and that song. Just make it more exciting and unpredictable.

The show runs until February 10, tickets are available via Computicket.
