Saw "Maggie & Pierre" yesterday @ TIP. Strong performance, script might appreciate some editing. Love TIP shows both in the Springer Theatre and the more intimate Firehall Theatre. Super to see Canadian plays .. both vintage and new.

Attended Boom and we were so glad we booked at the last moment. What a wonderful one man show that certainly took us all back in time. Great memories and a show not to miss. Only two weeks left!
