The Firehall Arts Centre presents the World Premiere Production of CHELSEA HOTEL featuring the songs of LEONARD COHEN conceived & directed by Tracey Power musical direction & arrangements by Steve Charles Dates: February 8 – March 3, 2012 Previews: February 3 - 5 & 7 Times: 8pm evenings, 2pm weekend & 1pm Wednesday matinees Venue: Firehall Arts Centre 280 East Cordova Street, Vancouver BC Canada Admission: $12 to $30 Tickets & Information: 604.689.0926 or www.firehallartscentre.ca “Love is a fire It burns everyone It disfigures everyone It is the world’s excuse for being ugly.” – Leonard Cohen “No one knows where the night is going and no one knows why the wine is flowing.” - Leonard Cohen Vancouver, BC - Leonard Cohen’s powerful and inspirational music and lyrics are the heartbeat for Chelsea Hotel, an illusory world full of enchantment, desire, passion and love running February 8 to March 3 at the Firehall Arts Centre, with 2 for 1 previews February 3 to 7. Haunted by memories of his tumultuous love life, a Writer checks into New York’s infamous Chelsea Hotel desperate to find the words and inspiration for his next song. Wading through past relationships, he reluctantly comes face to face with the love of the present, a love he wishes he could not just forget, but erase from existence. Chelsea Hotel is a riveting fusion of music, dance and theatre that takes its audience on an illusionary journey into the hotel room and creative mind of a Writer in search of the right words to cure love’s pain. The play stars Rachel Aberle, Lauren Bowler, Steve Charles, Benjamin Elliott, Marlene Ginader and Adrian Glynn McMorran as The Writer. Chelsea Hotel is conceived, directed and choreographed by Tracey Power, with musical direction and arrangement by Steve Charles, costume design by Barbara Clayden, set design by Marshall McMahen, lighting design by Ted Roberts, dramaturgy by James MacDonald, artistic direction by Donna Spencer and stage managed by Kelly Barker. Tracey Power has been involved as an actor and writer for The Firehall for many years, playing the Jessie Award-nominated role of “Little Sally” in Urinetown, The Musical and “The Folksinger” in The Ecstasy of Rita Joe. She also performed her Sterling Award winning self-penned, one woman show, Living Shadows in the 2007 season and wrote the book for the musical Back To You, The Life and Music of Lucille Starr, which received its world premiere with the Firehall in 2009. Leonard Cohen is one of the most important and influential songwriters of our time; a figure whose body of work achieves greater depths of mystery and meaning as time goes on. His songs have set a virtually unmatched standard in their seriousness and range -sex, spirituality, religion, power – he has relentlessly examined the largest issues in life, always with a full appreciation of how elusive answers can be to the vexing questions he raises. Check in to the Firehall Arts Centre Production of Chelsea Hotel. Room available February 8 through March 3, 2012, with previews February 3-5 and 7 at the Firehall Arts Centre. Tickets are $12-$30 and are available through the Firehall Box Office by phone at 604.689.0926 or online at www.firehallartscentre.ca . -30-

Hurrah for Acting! If you like acting and blood and empowered men and empowered women and sweet cars and random cat shots (can you spot it?) then you’ll probably also like my brand new music video! It’s for the song 7 or 8 Days and you can watch it HERE . This video was a labour of lust and could not have been made without many talented friends who donated their talents and skills (I shall put their names below). It’s been a mobile Fall for me- touring the new record all over Canada has been enchanting and never dull. Thank you to all of you who came to see a show or purchased a record. And there are still 2 more shows before Christmas to speak of; one in Vancouver and one in Squamish (details below). Then I’ll be retreating onto a different kind of stage—an Acting stage! Yes, I will be performing in my first play in aeons. It is a new work based on the songs and poems of one Leonard Cohen entitled Chelsea Hotel and it will have its premiere at the Firehall Arts Centre in downtown Vancouver for the month of February. And that’s me. I’m recovering from tour and learning how to write songs again. I’m reading the Death of the Liberal Class by Chris Hedges (who’s always such fun) and listening to lots of L. Cohen and also the Cure (specifically, Disintegration). At night I walk an imaginary dog named Conscience and lose him, inevitably, in the trees. When will I learn? Have a wonderful jingly season, my friends. See you all some time in the New Year. ~ Glynn
