In this guest review from Vancouver’s top funnyman and MC, David C. Jones, we get an audience-eye view of what it’s like to attend Bacio Rosso – the hybrid cabaret / vaudeville / dinner experience now playing at Queen Elizabeth Park.
Combining potshots at hipster culture and progressive politics, and relocating the story to local landmarks, “East Van Panto: The Wizard of Oz” consistently tickles the funnybone.
If you’re looking for an evening of holiday-themed musical family fun that will entertain one and all, look no further than A Christmas Story, The Musical from Align Entertainment, now playing at Burnaby’s Michael J.

Yippie-kay-ay Mister Falcon! Die Hard, The Musical(ish) mostly delivers on its crowd-pleasing premise: a singing, dancing retelling of everyone’s favourite action movie using rewritten 80’s pop tunes.
It’s a more serious show than the title would suggest, but it is engaging, tells a compelling story, and reiterates some truths that we all need to be reminded of. Plus some sure-fire banjo jokes!

A rare chance for Vancouver audiences to experience the first Broadway production penned by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, this show is colouful, touching and full of humor and heart.
Legally Blonde delivers an engaging message of equality and empowerment – a powerful punch delivered inside a pink velvet glove. It’s a deliriously delightful show full of toe-tapping tunes and fist-pumping moments from start to finish.
