Glamourama and Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike

Sibling rivalry was all but forgotten at the opening night celebration of Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. Friends and family gathered in harmony to congratulate the company on a wonderful performance that elicited barrels of laughter from the audience.

Enjoy some photos of the happy family below and view the full album on our Facebook page. All photos by Mark Halliday.

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike opens tonight!

There is a party off stage in every performance of Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, but tonight it will carry out into the lobby of the Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage as the three Chekhovian siblings (Jay Brazeau, Susinn McFarlen, and Anna Galvin) and their hunky house guest (Robert Salvador) celebrate opening night! Joined by their clairvoyant housekeeper Cassandra (Carmen Aguirre) and delightful young neighbour Nina (Katey Hoffman), this cast is sure to have audiences roaring!

Watch the trailer below as well as interviews with the cast.

Happy opening to the company of Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. May the strife and chaos remain on the stage!

Revue Stage memories

With the opening of the Arts Club’s new venue this coming fall (the West First Stage in Olympic Village), the time has come for us to say goodbye to the Revue Stage and welcome in a new era of artistic innovation at the Arts Club.

The Revue Stage first opened its doors as an Arts Club venue in 1983. It soon became the home to some of Vancouver’s all-time favourite musicals, revues, and comedies, including Ain’t Misbehavin’, before it was leased to the Vancouver TheatreSports League in 1997. After an extensive renovation, the Revue Stage re-opened as an Arts Club venue in 2010 with the world premiere of Anosh Irani’s My Granny the Goldfish. After hosting many original and innovative Arts Club productions over the years, it’s time to bid farewell to the Revue and welcome a new stage in a new neighbourhood.

As our final production at the Revue Stage, Sister Judy, closed over the weekend, we asked our audience members to share some of their fondest Revue memories. Watch the video below to reminisce with them, and share your own memories of the Revue on Facebook.

Subscribe to our new season to experience our new theatre, the West First Stage in Olympic Village. Order your season tickets online or call the box office at 604.687.1644 today!
