Oh my...audience participation! You love it or you hate it or you love it if it's not you up there on that stage. Blind Date tells the story of Mimi, a Parisian temptress, and her lovers and - yes! - that's you Mr. Row-3-Seat-24. Rebecca Northan has performed this to huge success across the continent. See what the fuss (fun, fear) is about! (Vancouver)

Linda Griffiths is a creature of controversy. From way back when she made a huge national splash with her solo Maggie and Pierre to now, with her play Duchess aka Wallis Simpson, she takes audiences on a roller-coaster ride through history (both real and imagined). UBC is mounting this stormy story of one - perhaps - the most despised woman in history who was, nevertheless, the woman he loved. (Vancouver)

Yeah...and there's Proud. You DO know the score on that one, don't you?
