Reviews

5-Star Calgary Herald Review
5-Star Calgary Sun Review

Named the Best Show on Broadway of 2003 by over 13 publications!

AVENUE Q is a gut-bustingly hilarious modern musical focusing on a group of unique 20-somethings making their way in the big city, seeking their purpose in life. Although the show addresses humorous adult issues, it is similar to a beloved children's show; a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned.

Winner of the Tony "Triple Crown" for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, AVENUE Q is part flesh, part felt, and packed with heart. AVENUE Q is a laugh-out-loud musical that tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that although the residents seem nice, it's clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.

The Fox on the Fairway

By Ken Ludwig

"A grand slam...a joy to behold!" -Washington City Paper
“Ken Ludwig has a wicked sense of comedic anarchy, giving his characters such zany idiosyncrasies that they soar to dizzying heights!” - The Washington Examiner

"An uproarious madcap romp!" - Ruth Ross, njartsmaven.com

 

A tribute from Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, The Fox On the Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it's a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers' classics. A charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man's eternal love affair with... golf.

‘80s Solid Gold - A Musical Revue

Written by Howard Pechet & Timothy French

 

The team that brought you BRITISH INVASION and MOTOWN GOLD has set their sights on the music from that decade of big hair, and even bigger shoulder pads. The 1980s introduced music lovers to the sound of the synthesized keyboard and some of the greatest pop and rock & roll artists of the last century.  Just some of those big names include male vocalists like Lionel Ritchie, Phil Collins, Huey Lewis and Billy Joel; legendary groups like Journey, Simply Red, Aerosmith, Hall & Oates, U2 and The Police; and innovative and enduring female vocalists like Madonna, Whitney Houston , Cyndi Lauper, Blondie, Olivia Newton John and Sheena Easton.

These are just a few of the names that are going to be part of this big, magical journey through the hit songs of the ‘80s. You won't want to miss this party!

…And Then, the Lights Went Out

By Andy Garland

 

“The clever plot-line is full of unexpected turns.” - Red Deer Advocate

Written by an Alberta-born and educated playwright and set in Edmonton during a heat wave, “And Then, the Lights Went Out” is a chilling saga of dames, deceit and writer’s block. Staring down an impossible deadline, author Thomas Levine is starting to unravel. Whether brought on by the heat or the stress, the fictional characters from his detective novel-in-progress are dropping in on him in his apartment, offering literary advice and drinking all of his liquor. With the publisher breathing down his neck and the landlady clamoring for the rent, Thomas will have to find some way to pull it all together and write himself out of this mess… before the lights go out.

From the original screenplay by Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin

“Hear ye, hear ye! Let it be known that “Spamalot” is a blast.” - Seattle Times
“A hugely enjoyable knight out.”- Manchester Evening News

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls?

Rumours & Dreams: A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac

Written by Howard Pechet & Randy Johnson

 

Blending British blues revival and California folk-rock, Fleetwood Mac, having achieved great success with their previous albums, was reshaped by the addition of Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham. In 1977 “Rumours” became the best-selling album ever for Warner Brothers and Fleetwood Mac became a household name in the English speaking world. It is said that 1 out of every 3 Canadian homes owned the album. We take you back to that era with the music of the great groups that both inspired and were influenced by Fleetwood Mac, such as Jefferson Airplane and Genesis.
