“It’s written on the walls of this hotel, you go to heaven, once you’ve been to hell” – Leonard Cohen

Chelsea Hotel has returned from a sold-out national tour for its encore! 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.

“Chelsea Hotel is a knockout… The harmonies are as thick as cabaret smoke and the performers exhale them with astonishing ease. Freakishly talented, they also play an insane variety of instruments—including guitars, keyboards, drums, violin, cello, bass, and accordion.” Colin Thomas, Georgia Straight

Chelsea Hotel doesn’t just sound good; it sounds, and looks, great” – Jo Ledingham, Vancouver Courier

“Chelsea Hotel brings together some of the most beautiful, melancholic and affecting songs in the history of recorded music.” Winnipeg Free Press

Conceived and Directed by Tracey Power.

Music Direction by Steven Charles.

Performed by Rachel Aberle, Lauren Bowler, Steve Charles, Ben Elliott, Marlene Ginader and Kayvon Kelly.

“I loved this show! I’m not a particular fan of theatre, but combined with Leonard Cohen’s songs/words and interpreted by this amazingly, multi-talented troupe I was mesmerized…loved the story, music and production, it was over much too soon!” – Sue, Winnipeg
