Your best bets on stage right now continue to be Almost, Maine at Pacific Theatre and Onegin at the Granville Island Stage. New to the list this week is a trip to Narnia for the whole family to enjoy.
Comprised of nine vignettes taking place over the course of a single night in the mythical town of Almost, Maine (until December 16), playwright John Cariani double-downs on his stories of love, where metaphors, idioms, and romantic clichés all come to life. Our reviewer Mark Robins says this quirky play with a terrific ensemble is definitely worth the trip to New England.
As part of its current tour, the hit homegrown musical Onegin (until December 31) returns to Vancouver. One of those rare theatrical moments not to be missed, you should take advantage of second chances, or go again and fall in yublyu (love) with it all over again.
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
Based on one of the most beloved children’s books of all-time, Carousel Theatre for Young People brings The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (until Jan 6) to the stage. Filled with mythical creatures, talking animals, quests and dangerous secrets it is a show for the entire family (recommended for ages 5 years and older).
