The IT Girl is charming, playful, and entertaining


The IT Girl Vancouver

In a theatre premiere in Vancouver, The IT Girl, is a highly entertaining and well choreographed musical from DramaNatrix Productions, a female partnership focused on engaging young urban audiences with fresh modern musical theatre while also emphasizing on creating more roles and opportunities for women in the industry.

The IT Girl is a story of Betty Lou Spence (played by Katie Purych), a lowly department store clerk from Brooklyn who falls in love with her charming and proper boss Jonathan Waltham (played by Jared Arthur). In an act of desperation for the failing company, Waltham (inadvertently) makes a bold move and establishes a contest to find the perfect woman - a woman with the mesmerizing, elusive, and thrilling quality known as "it". Through a series of mishaps, songs, and dance, Betty enters the contest in hopes of capturing the heart of her new employer.

The cast and crew of the musical did a great job in capturing the spirit of the 1920s department store, with a great and interesting set for such a small space. The music and lighting were also great as they helped set the atmosphere without being over-the-top or distracting. One of the most impressive parts of the production was the choreography; every actor on stage was in sync without a misstep, even in the more complex scenes. If you've looking for a fun, innovative, and quirky production, The IT Girl has everything you need.

The IT Girl is on until October 17th, 2015 at Studio 1398 on Granville Island. You can pick up tickets online or at the door.

This week in (gay) Vancouver: LGBTQ shows you don’t want to miss at the Vancouver Fringe Festival


Vancouver Fringe 2014The 2014 Vancouver Fringe Festival is now underway.  Here are capsule reviews of the shows with LGBTQ themes that you won’t want to miss at this year’s festival:

Ludwig & Lohengrin

Using a large white bed sheet, Rakoz dazzles us with shadow puppets and seamlessly moves from one character to the next as he tells this little known piece of Bavarian history. Never missing a beat, Rakoz manages to compress a lifetime into just sixty minutes with clarity and surprises.  Funny and poignant, this is one biography worth exploring.  Read the entire review at Vancouver Presents.

The Chariot Cities

There is so much going on in The Chariot Cities that it sometimes feels like it is going to collapse under its own weight, but this talented cast not only gives us some beautifully realized moments, it leaves us wanting more. Read the entire review at Vancouver Presents.
