Top Ten Thousand of All Time poster

What do The Allman Brothers, Portishead, WH Auden, and the Toronto Blue Jays have in common? Find out the answer as a solitary late-night DJ counts down his top 10,000 favourite tunes from the secret studio he discovered in Kerrisdale in Pacific Theatre’s presentation of Top Ten Thousand of All Time.

Ron Reed’s quirky and deceptively simple one-man play written at a time when Pacific Theatre’s future was uncertain, Top Ten Thousand of All Time is as much about the work and calling of an artist as it is about the songs that make up the soundtrack to a person’s life.

Written and performed by Artistic Director Ron Reed, there is a touch of autobiography in Top Ten Thousand of All Time. Reed is not only a playwright, actor, and Artistic Director, but a musicophile who loves creating lists of all types. While he may not have an actual top ten thousand songs of all time, if he did, you can be sure that every song mentioned in the play would make the cut.

Before founding Pacific Theatre in 1984, Reed received his MFA in acting from the California Institute of the Arts. He has received over five Jessie Award nominations for his acting and is a widely-produced playwright with over fifty productions to date.

Having already hit stages in San Francisco, Houston, Toronto, and Galiano Island, this show marks Top Ten Thousand of All Time’s debut at Pacific Theatre.
