At the Pumphouse Theatre in Calgary.
It was like, so awesome!!
Now I will admit I have not watched the original movie. In entirety. Maybe caught a few scenes of it now and then while flicking through channels. My wife did watch it. About 12 times. So when I saw the banner for the performance by Front Row Centre Players on the way to work, I knew I had the perfect surprise gift for her. Little did I know, I was in for a surprise.
Omigod, it was like the most hilarious performance by immensely talented cast and crew.
It was something like out of a Saturday Night Live episode with Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell.
The script stayed true to the original story (as confirmed by my wife) but also included some hilarious satirical yet thought-provoking intakes – The numbing effect of the department store (Call of the Mall, anyone??), European or Gay?
No show is complete without the collective efforts of the crew who work tirelessly behind the scenes.
The show runs daily up until June 8th, 2013. Get your tickets, bring your family and friends, and head down to the Pumphouse Theatre to support your local arts and theater scene.
