Vancouver hometown heroes Theory of a Deadman return to their roost in an exertive panorama of stadium-sized riffs and hard-rocking party anthems. Like the letter E at an optometrist’s office, the band has grown accustomed to the top of the charts, with mainstream rock hits such as “Lowlife” and “Bad Girlfriend” and the life-affirming sing-along “Hate My Life.” Stuffing kevlar crunch, post-grunge, and rockabilly into its sonic calzone, Theory of a Deadman dethaws January fans with seasoned classics and newborn cuts from its latest smash The Truth Is…. Locally acclaimed indie rockers Louder Than Love whet aural appetites in their opening performance as they juggle genres without falling off their tandem unicycle.
The 24th Street Theatre blurs the line between adult and children’s theater with programming that's simultaneously accessible and nuanced. But the organization accomplishes much more than that. Stewards to the Teatro Nuevo Latino Initiative, music services, and outreach programs for at-risk youths, 24th Street Theatre's creatives draw neighborhood adolescents into the arts. And they're obviously doing something right. As Jack Black once said of the theatre’s director, according its website, “I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t met Deb Devine, my first drama teacher.”
In 2008, South Pacific swept the Tony Awards®, capturing seven golden trophies, including Best Musical Revival and Best Director for Bartlett Sher. Based on James Michener's Pulitzer Prize–winning book, Tales of the South Pacific, South Pacific tells, dances, and sings the story of two couples—Navy nurse Nellie Forbush with French plantation owner Emile de Becque, and airman Joe Cable with lovely native lass Liat— torn by war and the temptations of tropical paradise. The original production won the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1950, with its frank depiction of racial prejudice as a central theme.
Knightsbridge Theatre's talented cadre of thespians presents a schedule of lovingly crafted stagings of classic theatrical texts in an intimate, newly restored theater. Five- and 10-seat subscriptions allow patrons to use their seats any way they like, bringing along a mass of friends for one show or sitting on a friend’s shoulders and plopping down into a single seat, or gifting tickets to a friend, family member, or favorite landscaper. Upcoming shows include Steel Magnolias, the original musical comedy Bergeracky, Rostand's comical French romance Cyrano De Bergerac and the medieval tale of intrigue The Lion in Winter. Shows take place in a renovated 1920s silent-movie house that contains just 99 seats, creating an intimate atmosphere that allows actors to connect to the audience without the use of duct tape.
