On Saturday, December 21, a seasonal tradition continues as I invite one and all to drop by and join my Eighth (!) Annual Holiday Sing-Along and Fundraiser for Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter! It’s always a fun and extra-festive afternoon. I hope you can drop by, even if only for a few minutes, and lend your voice!

When I arrived for the dual premiere of “Perfect” and “Karaoke: The Musical” last Saturday, I was worried. Not (mostly) because I was settling in for a double helping of unknown theatrical quantities, but because I felt my energy fading from a long, jam-packed day and feared sinking into a slumber when the lights went down, regardless of what delightful things were happening on stage. It was an unfair test, but at any rate I needn’t have worried. These two comedies not only succeeded on their own terms, they also restored my lacklustre energy levels faster than a jumbo dose of Red Bull.
