A new Canadian musical about the history of the iconic Vancouver hotel
Book by Deborah Vogt
Music and Lyrics by Britt MacLeod
Sylvia’s Hotel is set in Vancouver in 1912. It brings to life the origin of the Sylvia Hotel and the story of the Goldstein family who built it. Both young Sylvia Goldstein and Joe Fortes, the beloved lifeguard who taught Vancouver children to swim, experience the challenges of those who didn’t quite “belong” in the Vancouver of the time.
