Our picks this week: Fun Home, A Steady Rain & Pss Pss

Fun Home

There is usually no better recommendation than having one of our theatre reviewers tell us they are going back to see a show a second time. The Tony Award–winning musical, and the first Broadway musical to feature a lesbian protagonist, Fun Home (until March 10) continues at the Arts Club’s Granville Island Stage.

A Steady Rain

Don’t let its unusual venue scare you away. Seven Tyrants Theatre presents Keith Huff’s gritty police story, A Steady Rain (until March 3) upstairs in the VIP room at The Penthouse. Huff’s tightly wound and intriguing script, coupled with two absolutely terrific performances, makes this another best bet this week.

Daniel Deorksen and David Newham give compelling performances in A Steady Rain.

Pss Pss

And now for something completely different. Over at The Cultch’s York Theatre comes the international award-winning clown show Pss Pss (until Mar 4). Inspired by the physical comedy of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, it is a classic pas de deux of mishaps and acrobatics.
