Noel Coward's Sail Away

Alright, Vancouver! Get ready for yet another musical hitting our town. This time, it's the classic Broadway show, Sail Away, by Noel Coward. Put on by the Applause! Musicals Society, it "tells the story of a romantic love-affair aboard a cruise ship, with all the classic wit and charm of Broadway's golden era." 

"Recent divorcee Mimi Paragon (a role originated by Elaine Stritch) is stuck serving tourists as one of the ship's hostesses when she is drawn to the much younger and strikingly handsome Johnny Van Mier. Complicating their relationship is a host of eccentric and hilarious cruise ship characters—from cynical and quirky Sweeney couple, to Johnny's dominating and diva-like mother, Mrs. Van Mier, to the wacky novelist Spencer Bollard, and his wide-eyed niece Nancy. The dialogue is peppered with classic Coward witticisms throughout, and the music is composed in the classic Broadway tradition. An enchanting tour-de-farce for theatre groups and musical lovers alike, Sail Away is a journey you will not forget!"

SAIL AWAY is on from May 8-10 at CBC Studio 700. For more information and tickets, please visit the website here
