Reviewer John Jane

Bahr kicks off her (surprisingly short) forty-five minute show as her alto ego, professional baby surrogate Rae Lynn complete with blonde mullet, strolling round off-stage chatting to members while staying in character.

When & Where Friday, November 19 – December 24, 2021; 10 am - 8 pm (closes 6pm on Dec 24) | Vancouver Convention Centre East - Exhibition Hall A, 999 Canada Place

Reviewer John Jane

Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (conventionally known by only his first name) is particularly famous for painting the Sistine Chapel ceiling in 1512 and The Last Judgement, commissioned twenty years later to cover the altar wall. The later work took another five years to complete. The Sistine Chapel is located in the Apostolic Palace, Vatican City.

Today, it is universally known as the papal conclave, the process by which a new pope is selected. Full review
