Jailhouse Rock

It’s 30 degrees below; it’s starting to snow; where else could I go but to the Prairie Theatre Exchange to set the dance floor on fire and create a little warmth with “Burnin’ Love”.

Yes, I’m here in Winnipeg, one of Canada’s most notoriously chilly cities, fittingly rehearsing for a show with a reference to fire in it.  Winnipeg playwright, Sharon Bajer, has written a heartwarming and hilarious piece about love, death and Elvis and I’m providing the Elvis.

As if Phil Ochs, Buddy Holly and Hank Williams wasn’t enough, I feel like I’ve finally arrived doing my first “Elvis” impersonation.  This is not the path I imagined for myself, but it sure is interesting.  There has been no better way for me to learn about the roots of pop music than to really explore the lives of those who have made such an impact.

The show opens in two weeks, March 3-20th.  More info here: www.pte.mb.ca

  1. Hi Zachery,
    Saw you do Buddy Holly at the Arts Club with Kevin & Leigh & family from your home town on the Island and really enjoyed it!
    I hear that you are coming back to the Mainland and will be in Delta soon – what when where ? Would love to see you in action again.
    Thanks
