CiTR is Proud To Sponsor: A Good Woman of Setzuan

Running between Wednesday, June 29th to July 24th Seven Tyrants Theatre Present: A Good Woman of Setzuan.

A Good Woman of Setzuan is a re-imagining of Bertolt Brecht’s musical parable about the struggle to live a moral life in a society corrupted by greed and selfishness.

Staged in the lush environmental setting of the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, this groundbreaking Seven Tyrants production gives audiences a unique opportunity to enjoy one of the 20th Century’s greatest plays in one of Vancouver’s top attractions.

A Good Woman of Setzuan is a wildly entertaining examination of the relationship between economic systems and the moral standards they produce. In true Seven Tyrants fashion, A Good Woman of Setzuan draws from several translations of Brecht’s original German tale, to present a streamlined re-telling that modern audiences are sure to enjoy. The production features an original musical score and choreography, all performed live by the multi-talented cast.

As mentioned, it will be performed at The Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden- 578 Carrall Street, Vancouver.

Tickets are $32.00 for adults and $29.00 for students. Tickets are on sale now! Call: 604-662-3207 ***Note that if you buy your ticket before June 29, you will receive a $5.00 discount.

The Arts Report! – June 15, 2011

On the show today…
The Mountain Goats
Thankfully, they’re not really mountain goats bleating at The Biltmore Cabaret (actually, that would be kinda awesome) but rather a three-piece folk rock band with John Darnielle on vocals and guitar, Peter Hughes on bass and Jon Wurster on drums. With a distinctive lo-fi sound since the 90s, ‘The Mountain Goats’ began to develop a more cleaner sound by recording their albums in studios. Recently, they released a new album called All Eternals Deck with songs inspired by deck of fictional tarot cards. Jon Wurster joins The Arts Report and talks about the band.

On June 17th at The Biltmore Cabaret, for more information and tickets, click here!

Crystal Precious
Once again, Crystal Precious joins The Arts Report for an extended interview! As a prominent spokesperson and advocate for the Vancouver burlesque movement, Crystal Precious made her mark across the nation with polished vocals interweaved with lyrically witty hip hop verses. As part of a neo-burlesque troupe, Sweet Soul Burlesque, they mix up classic striptease with new pop culture elements. Each dancer with has their own vibrant dance style and Crystal Precious in particular, has popped out from life-size venus flytrap.

Check her out at Keefer Bar with Sweet Soul Burlesque every Thursday.

Tune in today at 5PM!
