March 2-12, 2017, The York

Elbow Room Café: The Musical offers a candid look inside the world of Vancouver’s iconic Elbow Room Café, home of raucous service, celebrity sightings, and a heart of gold. This show explores how we age together in a technicolour world. With Elbow Room, playwright/lyricist Dave Deveau, composer/lyricist Anton Lipovetsky and director Cameron Mackenzie sink their teeth into the whimsy and heart of café owners Patrice and Bryan as they manage the hectic world of one of Vancouver’s most recognizable eateries. Partners in business and life, they are the heart and soul of the piece and anchor an eclectic and campy cast of misfits, drag queens, and the perpetually hung over.
