I’ve decided I am launching a new column of ‘cool dates’, because if your like me, you get into a rut after awhile of the same old. Now to kick it all off , I have a bit of a forbidden treat!
That’s right, my first date recommendation for the New Year is Forbidden Broadway. Now gentlemen, what makes this a perfect date, is that they encourage drinking during the performance. You see, they theatre is set up with lovely candle lit tables and you can purchase an entire bottle of wine to garnish that table. From the female mind, we think, ‘Oh how very civilized! We can sit here and sip wine on lovely white dollied tables while watching the show. And how very thoughtful of our date to get us a bottle of wine to share.’
So what! You could do this at any show at the PAL Theatre. Why Forbidden Broadway? Well, it’s true, and I may suggest another show at the PAL Theatre again, but what makes this show such a great date, is that it is hilarious. My date and I laughed the entire time! And laughter is such a great ice breaker and turn on. I’m totally attracted to a man that can laugh and has a good sense of humour. Hell, let’s face it, anyone that doesn’t, really shouldn’t be with me.
Reason #4: Forbidden Broadway is a spoof on musical theatre. So by taking a date there, it makes you look rather worldly in the Arts. Yet, another thing, I find insanely hot in a man!
Reason #5: The Players of Fighting Chance Productions are amazingly talented, pulling off a number of different voices, characters and songs between the five of them. I loved watching Aaron Lau prance around like a great big pussy cat, Andrea Bailey did such an uncanny Reece Witherspoon impression that I nearly peed my pants, Natalee Fera’s impression of the Wicked Witch of the West will scare you silly, Cathy Wilmot’s rendition of Hairspray was a show favourite of mine, and David Nicks looks awfully fine in a dress. We even caught a glimpse of the show’s director skipping round the stage, like a giddy school girl. Clearly he’s done a bit of performing himself.
Oh and as an added dating tip, invite the girl for a walk along the water in Coal Harbour after the show, or if you’re fortunate to live in the area, back to your place for a cocoa after the show.
I know ladies, I should probably be shot for giving men dating tips, but seeing as my gorgeous date was one of my best gal pals, I need to live out my fantasies somehow. Oh, and as a warning, be aware of men with parrots inviting you back to their boat after the show. These sorts, even if poising as cute and furry woodland creatures, are usually pirates in disguise and highly dangerous creatures (yet totally lovable).
