Meet Vancouver-based actor, Andrew Coghlan.
Andrew next appears in the Naked Goddess Productions presentation of Dancing Lessons, the story of a geophysics professor with Asperger’s syndrome who turns to a Broadway dancer for help in learning to dance for an awards dinner. The dancer, however, is recovering from an injury that may end her dancing career permanently. As their relationship unfolds, the two are caught off guard by the discoveries they make about each other and themselves.
Dancing Lessons plays the Jericho Arts Centre (1675 Discovery St, Vancouver) October 4-20. Visit nakedgoddessproductions.com for tickets and information.
