Music: Theatre:
British-Nigerian actor Tayo Aluko brings his award winning one man show- Call Mr. Robeson- to Metro Vancouver for a single performance at New Westminster’s Douglas College on February 23. It is a rollercoaster journey through actor, singer and pioneer civil rights activist Paul Robeson’s remarkable life. With much fiery oratory and Robeson’s famous songs, such as Ol’ Man River, Tayo Aluko revives one of the 20th Century’s most impressive but overlooked figures in this powerful, compelling performance, which received a standing ovation New York’s Carnegie Hall in February 2012. $20 at or HighLife Records on Commercial Drive. (No-one will be turned away at the door)
