Written by Greg Ochitwa (pictured), this hip hop musical focuses on the struggle of three young adults to survive the perils of their poverty-stricken inncer-city neighbourhood. It opens tonight at the Globe as part of the theatre’s Shumiatcher Sandbox Series, and runs until Feb. 4.

Again, I believe the plan is for one of our contributors to attend Cope and review it for Dog Blog. So be on the lookout. For ticket info, call the Globe at 525-6400.

Also starting a run tonight is a local production of the Broadway musical [TITLE OF SHOW]. Nominated for a Tony in 2009 for Best New Musical, the show sees an aspiring writer and composer create a musical about their efforts to create a hit musical. The production is being presented by the Blue Room Company at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, Jan. 26-29 at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee on Jan. 29 at 1:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 Adults, $15 Students & Seniors.
