Playhouse Theatre Company


Playhouse Theatre Company review Rate it

For 42 years, the Playhouse produced a balanced programme of classics, recent hits from the world stage and Canadian plays - the traditional mandate of the nation's regional theatres. In its prime, the Playhouse had a 12-show season; but that has now shrunk to five productions. Still, Playhouse shows are usually well-directed and well designed, with casts featuring the finest national and local talent. Robert Lepage's The Far Side of the Moon and The Anderson Project were hosted by the Playhouse recently. The productions are staged in a downtown theatre also named the Playhouse, although the 700-seat venue is a city-owned property also used for concerts and dance events. After the 2010 games, the Playhouse will move to a new production centre in False Creek South, site of the Olympic Village. The facility will house a brand new 240-seat second stage and a bar.
