Blue Surge // Twenty-Something Theatre

posted on: August 27, 2010

I have been following Twenty-Something Theatre a few of its 5 years running. There are close ties with Sabrina Evertt, the Founder and Creative Producer of the theatre company, as she is the sister of Andy (one of Adam’s bffs if you don’t read this blog enough!) Adam’s Dad has also been involved with contributions in the past, and we always try to make it out to support Sabrina’s work. Clearly Twenty-Something Theatre has found a niche market in its 20-35 year old actors and audience, with smart marketing like Twitter and a Blog to keep up with their social networking obsessed twenty-somethings (Who? ..Me?)

Anyone who is at all into theatre knows the value in a good quality play. When we arrived at Studio 16, which is tucked away between Granville Street and Fir at 7th, the venue was noticeably small. It’s attached to a quaint and extremely busy restaurant, with only a small table at the front with concession items, including beer and wine that they allow you to take into the theatre! The inside of Studio 16 felt like I’d just stepped into a small New York theatre with only about 6 rows of seating, forcing you to feel like you’re practically in the play as well. The intimate setting was perfect for this production, which I decided that I like more than most movies I’ve seen lately. Within the first 15 minutes, Blue Surge had me completely encompassed in the happenings of the actors, and no...it wasn’t because of the full frontal male nudity :P

The actors were all so accurately cast, their lines and mannerisms executed perfectly and most importantly, believable. For $18, you wouldn’t expect the attention to detail that Blue Surge delivers, but as I’ve mentioned, my expectations were exceeded. Every last set component from the lighting and music, to their costume details and props made the play’s atmosphere worth far more than you pay for.


I don't usually shamelessly promote like this, but I enjoyed the evening so much I felt like I had to blog about it RIGHT away to infom my Vancouver readers! I do honestly recommend it for an inexpensive night of laughs, drama, and fun, but it's only playing for another week and a half so get your tickets right meow!

Sabrina Evertt is the Producer and Director of Blue Surge, as well as Founder and Artistic Producer of Twenty-Seomthing Theatre. Sabrina isn't just a pretty face, this girl has drive, creativity, and an abundance of talent. Plus, I may or may not have been in love with her outfit choice for the play's premiere. The romantic ruffle dress, her black t-strap 20's inspired shoes, and her double key necklaces...I die! Great work Sabrina, the plays just keep getting better!
