Place: Brian's Record Option
Brian's Record Option is closed for the night but its lights are on. Within, a sputtering torch is passed as a vinyl-veteran shows a record-rookie the ropes. With stories new and used, characters foreign and familiar, and the store itself two opposites at once, we asked Brian about some of his favourite stories from his 30 years on Princess street, made a play about it, and perform it to the soundtrack of whoever is spinning at Brian’s Record Option. New & Used runs from July 15-July 23, tickets are available at the Grand Theatre and Brian’s Record Option.
*Original cast in April 2016 featured Audrey Sturino and Hannah Komlodi.
I found myself moving as close as I could to the action - smiling without even realizing it as the actress depicting Used gshed about the shop's importance and history...highly recommended for lovers of downtown Kingston, history, or music
