About The Market Theatre

A visit to Johannesburg is incomplete without a night out at this internationally acclaimed theatre, made famous as the first integrated theatre, playing a pivotal role in the struggle against apartheid through the encouragement of debate and challenging ideas.

The Market Theatre houses three theatres, a bar, an art gallery and the second of the famous Moyo restaurants. The Market Theatre complex is also home to Kippies International Jazz Club, a superb jazz venue, modelled on an old Victorian toilet and named after the legendary saxophonist, Kippie Morolong Moeketsi. This intimate jazz club features live performances by local and international acts and is guaranteed to keep the patrons swinging till the wee hours of the morning.

The complex still retains the ambience and spirit of a marketplace. The theatre itself is infused with theatrical history, from the posters of Athol Fugard plays that premiered there to Grammy and Tony award-winning musicals like Sarafina.
