Niagara's Loss is Toronto's Gain
Although we're happy that one of Niagara's most colourful characters has found a new life in Toronto, we're also very sad to see him go. Chris Snow (whose "real name" is Daryl Bell, in case you'd forgotten) started an exciting new and challenging job in the big T.O. leaving his Dunnville roots and scores of fans behind.
Chrissy is renown for his hilarious stage performances both in and out of drag. His performances include appearances across Southern Ontario and Western New York as well as many productions at the Dunnville Community Theatre.
Snow is best known as the owner of The New Vouz, once Niagara's finest and most popular LGBT bars which closed its doors 4 years ago. This was followed by a hot and steamy position in Fort Erie before being offered a lucrative new career in Toronto.
Chrissy, you know how much I love and admire you and even though it has been a while since we saw each other in person, there was comfort in knowing you were only a town away. Somehow that seems different now, even though Toronto truly isn't that far away. Like so many, I will miss you dearly and wish you nothing but fame, fortune and the greatest of success in your new home.
I hear there's a mayor's position coming up for grabs in two years, perhaps that will be your next role?
All the best my friend!
"Thanks Ken, for your story of Chrissy's big move. I liked what you said about the comfort of knowing that Chrissy was 'around' and yes, although T.O. is not far away, it feels like a planet away. I hope he finds the time to perform - would be a great opportunity for us to make a trip to see him!! I will forever read scripts with characters that would be perfect for Chrissy and Darryl...I was so hoping we would have him for a long time. We will surely miss him at the theatre, but thanks to the internet we can keep in touch and get updates on what he's up to. We wish him much luck and love in his future endeavours!"
