Great Show in Vancouver!
It was a great pleasure to be hosted in Vancouver. A sold-out house at the theatre on Granville Island, and a very very appreciative audience.
With this show I feel we have launched the campaign toward Broadway.
I say that because I performed one of the two stories that will comprise my show at the SoHo Playhouse starting this November. The main story is Chiritotechin – the rotten tofu story. I have chosen it because it contains so many of the peculiarities of Japanese manners, and relations between friends and neighbours, that you can get a real slice of Japanese life and culture from this story. It also plays to so much of the personal anecdotes that I have in my introduction, so it makes a nice Rakugo set!
Vancouver audiences are always fantastic, and this was no exception. I am looking forward to doing a run some day in Vancouver!
Thank you so much to the organisers, the Vancouver Mokuyokai, and to everyone who came out.
A special thank you to Kaz Kadono and the wonderful Lister Hotel for your amazing hospitality.
Now back in London and getting ready for a run of 13 shows at the Brighton Festival!
