UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN: Week of April 27 - Western Canada Theatre

UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN: Recommended Virtual Theatre

UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN is a curated list of content that we're most excited to check out. Compiled by the staff at Western Canada Theatre, each week we'll send along a few items we've found on channels of other cultural institutions we admire from across Canada and the globe.

Here's a short list of what not to miss this week:

Dame Vera Lynn with West End Stars perform We’ll Meet Again 2020

First, we have the iconic, seemingly indestructible, Dame Vera Lynn introducing stars of London’s West End to perform We’ll Meet Again, Britain's morale-boosting anthem of World War II that she first sung it in 1939. 

“The lyrics speak to a universal feeling of loss, regardless of age, time or place. They remind us how important it is to keep hope alive. However bad things get, we will always all be together again,” says Vera Lynn. 

MIMI: Live!

A flashback to the immensely popular Blind Date, which played here in 2016: Rebecca Northan has been set up with Andrew Phung (of Kim’s Convenience) for her third Blind Dates ONLINE, in MIMI: Live! this Friday at 7:00pm PDT. At her YouTube channel Spontaneous Theatre Canada, you can also see her earlier dates with Colin Mochrie and Tony Nappo.
