Red Rock Diner at the Arts Club’s Granville Island Stage
If you long for the era when cars had fins, boys had greased-back hair, and the radio played a constant stream of Buddy Holly and Elvis Presley, head out to Red Rock Diner.
The best thing about the musical revue at the Arts Club’s Granville Island Stage this summer is its local twist: it’s inspired by Vancouver legend Red Robinson, who started DJing on CJOR in 1954, when he was still in high school.
Dean Regan created the show about five teens coming of age in 1957 in Robinson’s honour, and in 1998 when it opened, it starred a youthful Michael Bublé. Remounted until August 2, it features Tafari Anthony, Mat Baker, Todd Biffard, Jeff Gladstone, Anna Kuman, Neil Minor, Colin Sheen, Zachary Stevenson, Robyn Wallis, and Brett Ziegler. So pull out your best saddle shoes and cardigan, and head on down.
