Celebrating the music of the ‘60s and ‘70s, Summer in the City combines renderings of favourite pop songs with stirring dance numbers. The youthful ensemble slips into period costume, donning colourful blouses and wide-collared shirts as they sing such hits as The Monkees’ "I'm A Believer," Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline," and The Mamas & the Papas’ "California Dreamin'." Faithful renditions of the classic tunes charm audiences alongside fresh arrangements such as a Lovin' Spoonfuls medley the Calgary Herald praised as a "stellar re-imagining." Before the show, patrons browse a 120-item buffet where sushi and sashimi mingle with chili-glazed short ribs and Alaskan snow crab. Playgoers may be sharing tables with their fellow guests, and should adhere to a semi-formal dress code to inspire extra vigilance against spilling mousse on one's shirt.
Stage West Theatre Restaurant
Stage West Theatre Restaurant has been a beacon of dining and dramatics in Calgary for 30 years. General Manager Gary Tse and culinary wizard Chef Tsoi collaborate to create a night to remember six days a week, and the stage has been staffed with such stage-and-screen stars as Mickey Rooney, Abe Vigoda, Loretta Swit, and Sherman Hemsley. The company’s history has seen more than 10,000 season subscribers each year, of whom more than 100 have continued to subscribe each year since the first production. They take in the wide-ranging cuisine and entertainment from an intimate 400-seat, ramped, tiered theatre designed for uniformly clear sightlines and maximal accessibility to patrons who prefer to somersault to their seats.
