Get proud: “It’s spooky how like Stephen Harper actor Andrew Wheeler is in Proud and it’s not all in the grey, plastered-down wig,” said Courier theatre critic Jo Ledingham in her review of Michael Healey award-winning political satire last year. A remount of the hit play, happily coinciding with the beginning of the Mike Duffy trial, launches tonight with a half-price preview at Firehall Arts Centre.

Join an audience with King: American guitar virtuoso Kaki King hits the Biltmore Cabaret tonight with her innovative show The Neck is a Bridge to the Body, an hour-long visual and live music performance where the guitar is used as a projection screen to tell a creation myth.


Watch some wooden acting: The Old Trouts hit show Famous Puppet Death Scenes continues to kill it at the York Theatre tonight featuring a string of famous scenes culled from the best puppet shows in history that aren’t affiliated with Jim Henson.


Seek some treasure: Vancity Theatre screens Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter, the latest darkly comedic offering from indie darlings the Zellner Bros. that stars Academy Award nominee Rinko Kikuchi as a frustrated Tokyo office worker who becomes obsessed with a mysterious VHS tape of a popular film she’s mistaken for a documentary and travels to frozen North Dakota seeking a buried suitcase of stolen booty.
