The 11th annual Vancouver Chutzpah! Festival showcases the best in Jewish performing arts in theatre, music and dance. Happening at venues throughout Vancouver, the festival brings together high-calibre talent from across Canada as well as performers from Israel, Yemen, USA (New York), Italy, and Poland.

Highlights of the 17-day Chutzpah! Festival include performances from Isreal’s acclaimed Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company, Yemen Blues featuring the vocals of Ravid Kahalani (lead singer with the Idan Raichel Project at the Chan Centre last year) at the Venue Nightclub, and a production of the Broadway musical Falsettos at the Norman Rothstein Theatre. (I saw Falsettos in New York years ago and loved it, so I highly recommend catching this production!)

Tickets are on sale now for all performances. Find a complete list of shows and ticket prices at the official site.

The Vancouver Chutzpah! Festival runs through February 27, 2011.
