If you’re as big of a sucker for a play-within-a-play as I am (shoutout to the cast of my 12th grade production of A Misdsummer Night’s Dream) you’ll love Michael Frayn’s Noises Off, a farce that follows a second-tier acting troupe. Actors acting like actors acting like people? The dream.

If you’ve ever thought, “Boy, this musical could use more sex toys,” listen up: Talking Sex on Sunday premieres this week. In the show, a woman named Margot and her friends have made themed parties a sort of tradition. Margot chooses a party theme that is a bit more “playful” (read: sex toy party) and, as can be expected, comedy ensues. Choose your plus-one carefully for this racy production.

The Sea to Sky Gondola reopening day is likely the cheapest you’ll find tickets for a while—they’re 50% off this Friday. If you’re a real thrill-seeker, think hard about how the main haul cable was completely severed just last summer. (It’s been repaired, thus the reopening). We’ve clarified that even with 50% off tickets, you’ll still get 100% of the way up.
When: Re-opening Friday, February 14Where: Sea to Sky GondolaCost: $50 ($25 on opening day)More Info: seatoskygondola.com
