Your best best on stage right now, audiences have another opportunity to see Tony Kushner’s masterpiece Angels in America: Millennium Approaches (until Apr 23) this season. What our reviewer calls timeless, the play’s unflinching view on politics, greed, and religion during the AIDS crisis of the 1980s still resonates today.

2What the day owes to the night

DanceHouse closes out its season with What the day owes to the night (Apr 7-8) from French choreographer Hervé Koubi. Exploring his Algerian origins and personal journey, Koubi combines capoeira, martial arts, urban and contemporary dance with evocative Islamic imagery.

3Vancouver World Music Festival

The Vancouver World Musical Festival (Apr 6-8) returns for a third year, with a three night celebration of world beats and melodies. The festival features world-class artists from Mexico, Colombia, Iran, Brazil, Nicaragua, Cuba, Spain, London and Africa, as well as homegrown talent.
