Over the 17 years while I was abroad, I was asked where was home. Edmonton was always the answer. Funny how that is. I’ve lived in a lot of exotic places, but my family is all here, my best friends are here and even with some new additions, the city is still the same.

There’s something about the concept of coming to do a show like Rent in your hometown, at the Jubilee Auditorium, a place I’d never performed at. I mean I’d performed in that space but not on the actual stage.
