moustrapVertigo Theatre hasn’t produced an Agatha Christie mystery since And then there were none back in the 2010-2011 season and they also produced The Mousetrap back in the 2008-2009 season. Christie is considered to be the queen of mystery and this play has been running in London’s West End since 1952. It’s no wonder, as the play is a classic, with a slow build up and presents enough doubt about each character that when the murderer is revealed, it is a great journey to get there.

Advent calendars were a staple in our household growing up.  We’d wake up each morning and eagerly consume the low quality chocolate with glee. In recent years, advent calendars have taken on a life of their own – beer, tea, toys, beauty products – you name it!

Here are a few that we’ve discovered recently. Since these are a fairly niche/specialty item you’d be well advised to snatch them up quickly.

The Cellar

The Cellar on Stephen Avenue has a couple of cool ones to choose from, including the Twisted Shotz, which has a shooter for each day in December leading up to Christmas.

“Set a boundary and they will break it.” – Los Angeles Times

What Happened to the Seeker – STO Union. Theatre Junction November 25-28, 2015 

What Happened to the Seeker (Intimacy with a Thousand Things) chronicles a middle-class, North American women’s personal search and effort to recapture something marvelous that she has lost but has spent most of her life trying to get back. It is a journey based on vivid experiences from childhood, intertwined with the history of the Seekers – the hippie, free love generation that had a short-lived but influential impact on North American culture. In an attempt to re-ignite her spirit, she retraces the steps of the last Seekers to India, recreating the infamous hippie trail in reverse, seeking to find the original psychic starting point – the one that has been so vividly ornamented on her childhood memories.  [click to continue…]
