Oh what a beautiful morning! Especially now that we have yet another musical popping up in town in February! It's the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, Oklahoma! With a theatre group like Langara's Studio 58 behind it, it's bound to be a hit!

This show about "hopes and dreams and youth's attempt to realize them" has been reimagined for the more intimate setting at Langara and promises "part charming love story, part stirring retelling of American history, and many parts beloved songs and stunning dance!"

Oklahoma! runs at Studio 58 from February 5 to March 1. Tickets available online.

The Last Five Years

I don't know about you, but I am soooooooo excited to hear that coming to Vancouver in February is the live musical theatre production of The Last Five Years! Thank you Lion Fish Entertainment!

Never heard of this musical before? Neither had I, until the trailer for the movie version starring Anna Kendrick popped up online. It's an off-Broadway show that has a rampant cult following and centers around the story of a relationship between two people and its slow demise. Check out the movie trailer here:


So before heading to the film, make sure to check out the live production first, which starts its run in Vancouver on February 4 until Valentine's Day at the PAL theatre! Tickets on sale now online!
