He's performing his one-man cabaret production The God that Comes at the Vancouver East Cultural Centre — also known as The Cultch — until Nov. 24.
But this production is a little different from what his fans may be used to seeing. The artist who brought us Jealous of Your Cigarette leaves his rock 'n' roll presence behind for a more theatrical tone.
"When you get a little older I think you get a little bored with yourself and you start looking for other things and this was just one of the other things I found," Workman told Rick Cluff on the CBC's The Early Edition.
Workman also says it's a change for him to stay put for so long.
"To be in one place for two weeks is an interesting thing...it's an extraordinary, wonderful thing," he says.
The two-time Juno Award winner also explained how this production — loosely based on the story of Bacchus, the Greek god of wine, ecstasy and ritual madness — was inspired by his frustration with the current Canadian political scene.
Workman will be performing at The Cultch at 8 p.m. PT every day (excluding Monday Nov. 18) until Nov., 24. Tickets are priced from $18 upwards.
Please note that The God That Comes is for ages 19 and older.
