“Chelsea Hotel is a knockout… The harmonies are as thick as cabaret smoke and the performers exhale them with astonishing ease. Freakishly talented” – Georgia Straight

Check into New York’s infamous hotel—a place full of music and enchantment, desire and passion. Leonard Cohen’s powerful and inspirational music is the heartbeat of Chelsea Hotel, as six performers play seventeen different instruments in a rollicking tribute to the remarkable writer. Through Cohen’s transcendent songs and the honesty of his lyrics, you will be transfixed by this eclectic cabaret of loves won and lost.
