Off White Christmas

99 stars of David walk into a bar. The bartender says sorry, we don’t serve stars of David here. What jew talking about!? – Jeff Gladstone, Vancouver TheatreSports League improviser

 

Thank God for Google calendar. Tonight is the opening night of the improvised holiday comedy sketch show Off-White Christmas. Totally slipped my mind. With so many invites, dinners, get-togethers…’tis the season to be forgetful. After a day like today though, a little comedy will do me good.

West Side Story presented by Vancouver Opera

The cast are all from Canada, but they still rock the show like the original Broadway cast. 

The West Side Story Broadway musical landed its first premier in Vancouver Opera on last Saturday (October 22nd, 2011). The cast are all from Canada, but they still rock the show like the original Broadway cast. The musical combined dancing and on-stage fighting into intense choreography while the operatic scale composition was still perfectly delivered.

White Cabin

CJSF volunteer Jay Peachy attended Push Festival's White Cabin, a multi media work full of fury, complexity and mystery. Jay was able to find a satisfying narrative through White Cabin's narrative puzzle, this is what he had to say....

To start things off I’m not much of an experienced performance art’s fan.  However as a friend once referenced to a Stanley Kubrick quote; "I don't know what I want, but I know what I don't want.”
