Sometimes, with the stress of our jobs and the state of the economy, you just want to go to the theatre and be wrapped up in singing and dancing. There is no better opportunity for this than Theatre Calgary’s production of Crazy for You, The New Gershwin Musical with music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin and book by Ken Ludwig, co-conception also by Ken Ludwig and Mike Ockrent. This musical is a powerhouse performance with spectacular talent in vocals and tap dancing, comedic characters and memorable Gershwin music. Even if you haven’t heard of the production, you know the songs as they have been present in our culture. Theatre Calgary’s Crazy for You is a joy to watch and you will find yourself unable to resist singing along.

One of the main reasons that drew me to attend journalism school was the intrigue of meeting new people and having the opportunity to peel away even just a layer or two to discover what truly makes someone shine and to find out what they are about. I love hearing stories of how they’ve chosen to live their lives and what journeys they’ve been on – and this doesn’t apply to just fashion, although in this instance, it kind of does.

“Ancient” history, local tall tales, I love stories!

Personally, I’m a bit of a “geek” when it comes to the history of our cities. I love learning about the architecture, the local plant and animal life, the odd facts, best places to visit, local hangouts, the “less-loved” areas, the boring, it’s all interesting to me. It helps me to better understand the city, how it came to be, where it came from, why places are where they are, how it has shaped individuals into who they are today and how individuals themselves have changed it.

Whenever, and where ever, I travel or have lived,  I have made the effort in either taking a bus tour or finding a local of the town or city to learn more (or a new perspective) about the city. Having lived in Calgary for over ten years, I’ve just barely begun to scratch the service of understanding Calgary. So what better way to continue learning than through one or more walks during Jane’s Walk 2017!
