Alice in Glitterland – Broad-WHAT? Reviews

In a city full of mainstream Rogers and Hammerstein musicals, I found myself at the Wise Hall in Vancouver with my friends, strapping on a mask and awaiting our entry to the unknown. Down the rabbit hole we did go.

Right from the top, you were slapped in the face with excitement, jazz, sex and debauchery as the Red...

We got down to talking about his time studying at UBC, as well as his many multidisciplinary talents such as stage management, photography, and acting to name a few!
