Holiday At The Elbow Room Café December 10 – 29, 2019 At The Cultch

4 Dec

ElbowRoomCafeHoliday at the Elbow Room Café is a new Cultch holiday tradition inspired by Vancouver’s most iconic café. Written by Dave Deveau and directed by Cameron Mackenzie, husbands and lifelong friends of real life Elbow Room Café proprietors Patrice Savoie and Bryan Searle. Although the physical café is permanently closed, it lives in this production of Holiday at the Elbow Room Café.  Expect a hilarious and heartwarming tribute to the café known for slinging sarcasm and insults right along with its food. The downtown restaurant was a local favourite for over 35 years, Elbow Room Café closed its doors for business in the fall of 2018, a year after the sad passing of Bryan Searle—this show is dedicated to his memory.  The show features a cast of characters snowed in at the iconic café and well you know how well Vancouverites deal with snow right?!  Expect a night of song, dance and laughter.  Tickets are available online at The Cultch.

elbowroomcafeemilycooperYou are invited to take a peak inside one of Vancouver’s iconic eateries, the Elbow Room Café. The café is located in downtown Vancouver and is owned and operated by partners in life and in business,  Patrice and Bryan, who have been running the café since 1983. The restaurant is known for its eclectic breakfast and brunch menu that serves up sarcasm along with your food.  If you are lucky and you time it just right, you may also find a celebrity sighting or two.  The Elbow Room Café – The Musical features local actors Dave Deveau and Anton Lipovetsky who we hear sink their teeth into the roles of owners, Patrice and Bryan. Together they explore the reality of aging in a Technicolour world which is complete with campy misfits, drag queens and the perpetually hung over.  Elbow Room Café – The Musical runs March 1 to 12 at the York Theatre with artist talkback shows on March 3rd, 5th and 7th.  Tickets are available online from The Cultch and start from $20. Expect a loud, colourful and  unpredictable evening that’s full of heart.
