There’s a ton of things happening today actually. First, it’s the opening night of WhyRobotsMakeBetterLovers, the latest offering in the Globe Theatre’s Sandbox Series. It’s previewed in our Feb. 25 issue, and I’ll have a short review on the Friday production on Saturday.
Also tonight, the three-day Mid-Winter Blues Festival kicks off with a show at the Exchange. Check our music listings for line-up and venue info. And there’s an interesting talk at the George Bothwell Library at 7 p.m. by U of R English prof Jean Hillabold on Erotica & Censorship as part of Freedom to Read Week.
At nearby Chapters, U of R Geography prof Julia Siemer discusses the challenges of modern demography as part of Coffeehouse Controversies. And U of R History prof Bill Brennan gives a potentially controversial talk on the Regina Riot and the On-to-Ottawa Trek at the RCMP Heritage Centre.
Do-It-With-Class Young Peoples Theatre has the second night of its musical The Wiz at Conexus Arts Centre. Rik Emmett, Pavlo and Oscar Lopez are at the Casino. Mix Improv is doing a show at Aegean Coast Tea & Coffee. And dope Regina rapper Def 3, recently returned from a series of showcase performances at the Vancouver Olympics, is at O’Hanlon’s Pub.
