This week we are all about anniversaries as the musical Rent turns twenty, The Fictionals celebrate six years of Improv Against Humanity, and the Eastside Culture Crawl mark its 20th anniverary.
Uncle Randy is all grown up. Last seen in 2009, Uncle Randy Productions is now URP Event Production and Creative Services. Marking its return to producing musicals, the company presents a twentieth anniversary production of the Tony Award-winning Rent (Nov 15-20). Based on Puccini’s beloved opera La Bohème, Rent follows the ups and downs of a year in the life of a group of impoverished, artistic friends living in Manhattan’s East Village.
2. Improv Against Humanity
The Fictionals celebrate the sixth anniversary of Improv Against Humanity (Nov 16). Based on the popular party game, Cards Against Humanity, this show features the entire Fictionals ensemble as they crown another most horrible person in Vancouver. And to prove they aren’t entirely horrible, there will be birthday gifts too.
3. Eastside Culture Crawl
The Eastside Culture Crawl (Nov 17-20) celebrates its milestone 20th anniversary in nearly 500 artist studios, homes, and garages throughout Vancouver’s Eastside. Boasting its largest line-up to date, the four day festival of visual arts, design, and crafts gives visitors a glimpse into a neighbourhood with the most densely populated community of artists in Canada.
