Hair, The Pink Line and African Dreams
Hair, The Pink Line and African Dreams

This week our picks include a production of the musical Hair that still finds relevance, a new play from the frank theatre company exploring racism in the LGBTQ community, and African Dreams, the inaugural gallery exhibition for Vancouver artist Ariel Clearwater.

For good reason too. What our reviewer said is filled with “an outpouring of love and hope“, you should make this Summer of Love musical a must-see this summer.
