Now here's a neat example of the power of online media in the arts world.
Mention this blog to receive a $15 ticket for Tracy Dawson's Them & Us, on now through January 31st. That's for any ticket, any night, any time.
Them & Us is made up of a series of vignettes exploring the ins and outs of modern relating. By turns funny, poignant and... well, salty (the skit involving a 16-year-old propositioning her father's business partner is one you won't soon forget), Dawson's work goes way past the boring "relationship drama" cliches. That can only be a good thing. And it features a quartet of awesome Canadian talent; as well as Dawson, there's Sarah Dodd, Gray Powell, and Michael Healey (A comment about his performance I overheard at the opening: "If he were any more dry, he'd bleed sand..." True story.)
It's cold and wintery. You're not in Utah. So go to the theatre already.
