4th Annual Vancouver World Music Festival

The 4th Annual Vancouver World Music Festival (Apr 26-29) is a three-night celebration of world beats and melodies, with artists from Mexico, Iran, Africa, Spain, USA, as well as right here in Canada.

World Music Fest
Zimbamoto are one of the groups performing at this year’s Vancouver World Music Festival.

Misery

Your best bet on stage right now continues to be the Arts Club Theatre Company production of Misery (until May 5). A mix of thrills and humour, this stage adaptation of the Stephen King Novel is a show our reviewer says, “benefits from two outstanding performances, and one ingenious set design.”
