It has been freezing and everything is terrible, but Saturday is going to bring warm weather, so you should celebrate Friday night with dancing and seeing bands and listening to comedians.
Based on a famous 1956 jam session featuring Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis, the Royal MTC kicks off 2017 with Million Dollar Quartet — a bumpy but entertaining dramatic account of a remarkable moment in rock 'n' roll's history.
Jeanette Johns has an opening at Lisa Kehler Art + Projects Friday night if you stick around downtown after work, and Dana Smith is hosting a night full of comedy (for free!) just down the street.
Take a not-terribly-well-known Shakespeare play, a popular Winnipeg art-pop band, a few of the city’s finest actors and blend liberally with modern speech. What do you get? Remarkably dynamic theatre, as it turns out.
