Over the past few weeks I feel like I’ve been stumbling upon some seriously stylish ladies – and it was definitely time to find a stylish gent to add to the list of Street Style Huntress adventures in YYC. Oliver Pennock was the perfect capture – even though it decided to turn cold and snowy on the morning we photographed – but nonetheless I was able to capture his “hipster” style that I have to say I adore. I love the simplicity of his looks, which always have a nice amount of detail and pattern. There’s something to be said about classic pieces and colours, where so much room is left to add fun pieces of style to the mix. [click to continue…]

Someone that grew up watching Mr. Dressup (and to date, still has their own tickle trunk full of costumes at home), I understood costumes and dressing up for fun, Halloween or a theme party. What I didn’t understand was the emotions, creativity and camaraderie I was about to experience at the 5th annual POW! Parade of Wonders[click to continue…]

Lunchbox Theatre’s Newfoundland Mary is a musical that tells an uplifting tale of an unlikely pair, inspired by the life of Mary McCarthy Gomez Cueto. Mary was born in 1900 in St. John’s Newfoundland and moved to Cuba with her husband in 1923. The play, with music and lyrics by Scott White and book by Peter Fenton and Scott White, is based in Cuba and features strong singing but has a bit of a lacklustre plot and the duo lacks chemistry.

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.
