Coming up at the Firehall Arts Centre is the world premiere of Circle Game: Reimagining the Music of Joni Mitchell. Joining me now are Andrew Cohen and Anna Kuman, the duo who conceived and direct this production. The show features a reimagining of Joni Mitchell’s iconic and timeless music through a contemporary lens. The six members of the company are quadruple-threats, seen in various productions throughout town. I’ll get Ms. Kuman and Mr. Cohen to tell us about this show, this cast, and Mitchell’s music, and what one might expect during the show’s run which begins 29 April 2017, and runs until 20 May 2017 at the Firehall Arts Centre at 280 East Cordova here in Vancouver. Andrew Cohen is the musical director and arranger for this production. He is a graduate of UBC. He and Anna developed Circle Game in residence with Capilano University, where she is a graduate. Anna is an Ovation Award winner. Both have had involvement in theatre in and around Vancouver, with many credits to each of them. Visit www.firehallartscentre.ca for tickets and information. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Anna Kuman and Andrew Cohen; Ms. Kuman, good morning. And Mr. Cohen, good morning.
