The Post Mistress: laughter, sorrow and consolation

The Post Mistress, by turns hilarious, tragic, reverent and inspiring, is on at the Surrey Arts Centre until January 21. The creator of this amazing evening of entertainment is the multi-talented Tomson Highway.

Patricia Cano won over last's night's audience with her repertoire of facial expressions, her acting and dancing, her masterful portrayal of voices and accents. This crazy, funny and uplifting evening of entertainment was full of wisdom, jokes and surprises.

It's rare for a musical to feature virtuoso performances in English, French, and Cree. Spoiler alert: The tango scene takes place in Buenos Aires, Argentina (and that's pronounced the way the locals say it).
