Vancouver Courier Wednesday, April 07, 2010

TALENT SHOW Vancouver's only televised variety show, Paul Anthony's Talent Time, celebrates national humour month with its April 7th edition at the Biltmore. Guests include urban dance crew The Groovy G's, magician Emmette Hall, "homosexual sketch comedy" from the Ryan Steele Show, teenage opera prodigy Miriah Reitmeier and sidekick Ryan Beil, who also happens to star in the Arts Club's production of Billy Bishop Goes to War and those whacky A&W commercials. Show 9 p.m. Admission $8 at the door. IT'S A KLEZMER-ICAL

Truth be told, we thought the Chutzpah! Jewish performing arts festival ended already. Apparently not--but come Thursday, it will be "officially" over. Closing out the festivities, Les Yeux Noirs brings its klezmer-fuelled gypsy train to Venue April 8 for a sure-to-be foot-stomping affair with guest Lache Cercel and the Roma Swing Ensemble. For tickets, call 604-257-5145 or go to More info at FASHION FORWARD Even though every week is "fashion week" for the sharp-dressed peeps in the Courier's editorial department, we'd be remiss not to mention Vancouver Fashion Week April 7 to 11. In addition to Wednesday night's opening reception at the Open Road Audi dealership (2395 Boundary Rd.) the runway shows get underway at the Empire Landmark Hotel (1400 Robson St.) starting Thursday. Please let rugby pants come back into style. More details at LOWER THE BOOM Vancouver Pro Musica presents Sonic Boom 2010, its annual festival of new music featuring original works by B.C composers, April 8 to 11, at the Western Front (303 East Eighth Ave.) Performers include string ensemble Orchestra Armonia and Nu:BC.

How's this for a premise--a group of local comedic improvisers direct the city's best emerging young talent at Havana Theatre April 7 to 10 for an event called Young and Spontaneous, brought to you by the organizers of the Vancouver Improv Festival. Just how improvised will things get? Well, the press release even neglected to provide info on show times or ticket information. TOOTHY TONIC Vancouver New Music's annual spring concert series Sonic Tonic kicks off April 8 with Montreal's Quatuor Bozzini, which, according to the press bumph, moves between the avant-garde and traditional and has been known to "get its teeth into music." Show 8 p.m. with a free artist chat at 7 p.m. at the Scotiabank Dance Centre (677 Davie St.) Tickets $25/$15 at Sikora's Classical Records, 604684-2787 and DRAMA-RAMA Answering the age-old question "What happens when you put a writer, a baritone and a pianist into a room?" Savage Parade portrays an emotionally turbulent period in the life of 19th century French poet Paul Verlaine. Described as biographical drama that combines traditional theatre with music recital format, or "song drama," Savage Parade runs April 8 to 10 at Granville Island's Waterfront Theatre. Tickets at or by calling 1-800-838-3006.
