Monday, May 2 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. He cannot sing, he cannot dance and he thinks women should all have babies, but Jordan Peterson will no doubt be speaking to packed house. Question is will he bring the lobster?

Sunday, September 4 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. Four months after Jordan Peterson plays should be plenty of time to clean and decorate the theatre for the likes of RuPaul and her queens. Question is, will Vancouver queens bring sufficient pageantry and sass?
