National Arts Centre

In the interests of trying out all that the city has to offer, I tagged along with a co-worker to see the play Grease at the National Arts Centre or "NAC" for short. It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed the music and the performance. The NAC sounds very "high brow" but I really enjoyed myself and it is only a few blocks from my home so I am tempted to go again to see future performances. There are some shows in the winter that look interesting. I'll keep you posted.

On a more "low brow" note, I saw the new Harry Potter movie with an old friend. The multiplex is quite a ways from my house but is easy to get to by car. I would hate to have to take the bus, however. As for the movie, not my favorite although not completely horrible either. I wouldn't recommend it unless you have read the book.

Fantastic! There are always really interecting things on at the NAC and you can walk there! Lucky you!

Wow - Brian Adams, John Prine and (AND!!) Jerry Seinfeld perform there next month! I say skip the first two and go for the guaranteed laughs at Seinfeld's show.

I'm going to try out some other venues and return to NAC later in the year. I have signed up for a concert at the Scotiabank Place stadium in August and am going to try some of the more local events as well.
