This week we are all about the music(al), as we visit with the three Heathers, say so long to the monthly showtunes sing-a-long, and get lost in the Chelsea Hotel with Leonard Cohen.
Based on the 1988 cult film, Heathers: The Musical (Jan 6-17) will have you reliving your own high school days where the bullies ultimately get their comeuppance. If that isn’t reason enough, we understand these two also spend most of the second act in their underwear.
Say it isn’t so! The curtain is about to close for the last time as Showtunes at 1181 (Jan 8) will take its final blow. After two years of your favourite showtunes it is time for Marta, Gretl, Brigitta, Friedrich, Liesl, Louisa and Kurt to sing for us one last time: “so long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye”.
Staying with our musical theme this week, the Firehall reprises its hit 2012 show with an encore presentation of Chelsea Hotel: The Songs of Leondard Cohen (until Jan 9). There is a reason that they continue to bring it back year-after-year. If you’re a Leonard Cohen fan you’ll love it. If you’re not a Leonard Cohen fan, you will by the time you leave the theatre.
