Our weekly picks: Fun Home, Vancouver International Dance Festival & Vancouver International Women in Film Festival

Fun Home

Your best bet this week continues to be the Tony Award–winning musical, Fun Home (until March 10). What our reviewer called “one of the best shows this reviewer has ever seen at the Arts Club”, it is a fresh and open-hearted exploration of the complexity of life, love and family.
