Until one is forced to believe that Art is Dead does one find resonance in the truth that Real Art Never Dies.

Shirley Valentine, at the Gateway Theatre, was my absolute favorite theatre piece this year. Lois Anderson did such an amazing monologue that it made me go to the library just to reread the script. I don't think I've ever been that drawn into a local performance since 7 Stories.

The Drowsy Chaperone, at the Vancouver Playhouse was another fun surprise to watch and the concept was brilliantly charming.

Cirque du Solei's Corteo was another impressive highlight. It was my very first time seeing a Cirque performance and I'm very glad I went!
Hope you enjoy my 2008 theatre doodles :)

Oh you saw Cirque du Soleil I'm so jealous. I think last time I saw them live I was.... 7 years old.

Nice drawings really. I like their actions poses. My fav is also the girl with the candler. And I the woman under the cloud too.
