S5E21: Better than RENT

We wrapped up the coldest February in decades with the anticipated return of Mercury Opera to Chez Pierre; this time the company impressed with La bohème set as a 1979 East Village artist-romp. And poet Brandon Wint’s Alive! collaboration at Mile Zero Dance brought tears to the eyes of special guests from Let’s Get Lit (Edmonton’s delightful poetry podcast). Keep those mittens on, and enjoy!
