We’ve all heard of Rip Van Winkle, the strange old man who slept for 20 years. In the new musical, named after the main character himself, we see what happens to ol’ Winkle after he wakes up. This is a new musical in development, and they are hosting a reading featuring some of Vancouver’s best young actors that is pay-what-you-can! Aren’t those some of the sweetest words you’ve ever heard? Pay-what-you-can shows are simply the best.
Writer Alyssa Kostello and Composer James Coomber.
