Whether you love watching live theatre performances or it’s your first time seeing one, there are plenty of shows to choose from before this 2019 year ends. It’s always a fun time to invite your friends, family, or your significant other to see a play, especially during the winter holidays. It could also be a great gift to treat someone with a night filled with beautiful music playing and wonderful singing. Did I mention the insane, creative costumes you’ll get to see too? Well, don’t wait any longer and let me tell you some of the interesting live theatre happening right now till the rest of the 2019 year.
The Cirque du Soleil Luzia is still on till December 29 at Concord Pacific Place, 88 Boulevard, Vancouver. This show will leave you breathless with a performance about an imaginary Mexico where ‘light quenches the spirit and rain soothes the soul’. You can always expect a great show from Cirque du Soleil no matter what the theme is. If you’ve never been to one of their shows, they deliver a storyline through vibrant, colourful lights, along with some fire and water incorporated into their sets. This is definitely a show not to miss!
The Sound of Music is happening until January 5, 2020, and it has started since November 7. The show will take place at Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage, Granville Street, Vancouver. The iconic drama/romance musical brings back the classic tunes such as, “Do-Re-Mi”, “My Favourite Things”, and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain”. It is known to be one of the most powerful and romantic musicals of all time. If you want to understand the storyline before watching it live, I encourage you to watch the film itself. You’ll thank me later.
Last but not least, Peter Pan will be playing at Waterfront Theatre, 1412 Cartwright St., Vancouver. Also showing till January 5, 2020, Peter Pan has been playing since November 20. Surprisingly, prices aren’t that expensive, ranging from $12.50 to $35. You know the story – pirates, lost boys, Wendy, and a kid who never wants to grow up in a fantasy where everything is endless with adventures and magic. The classic film is a go-to to watch if you want to refresh your mind about the story, or just watch it for the first time if you plan on going to the show.
