“It’s written on the walls of this hotel, you go to heaven, once you’ve been to hell”
The Chelsea Hotelcast are checking out of Vancouver and heading off on a Western Canadian adventure that will see them perform this smash hit show in Saskatoon, Winnipeg and the Lower Mainland. We are excited to be taking this Jessie-nominated show on the road and bringing it back to Vancouver in March next year for an encore run at the Firehall.
Right now the six multi-talented cast members are tuning up their seventeen instruments, warming up their vocal chords and filling the theatre with the sounds of Leonard Cohen’s iconic music as they rehearse for the tour. It’s great to have them back!
If you have friends in any of the below cities, be sure to let them know this eclectic cabaret of loves won and lost is headed their way.
On Friday, October 12 at 8pm and Wednesday, October 17th at 1pm, Vocal Eye will provide live audio descriptions at performances of Chelsea Hotel.
Vocal Eye provides vocal description if theatre and performing arts to blind and low vision patrons.
“Each patron is given a personal receiver with a single earpiece and volume control that allows him or her to hear both the show
and our live audio description at the same time. The broadcast begins 15 minutes before curtain with detailed descriptions of the
set, characters and costumes. Once the show begins, the describer transmits pertinent physical action and visual detail between
the lines of dialogue. Brief program notes are provided at intermission.”
J.J. McColl’s Menopositive was first produced in the 1997-98 Season, but was so popular it has come back four times!
Chelsea Hotel sold out houses this year, and will be remounted next season!
People connect with the work done at the Firehall Arts Centre. The shows we present or produce are relate-able in some way; whether it’s a play about finding your place and identity, or a musical about growing older, the Firehall chooses work that shares a truth the audience can feel a part of.
We can’t do the work we do without your help. If you donate through Canada Helps before March 31 and take their quick 5 question survey, Capital One Canada will donate another $10 on top of your donation!
