I pride myself on being a good traveller. I’ve got just-a-carryon packing down to a science and the dance of airport security is muscle memory. I usually travel alone and I know what works for me- how I like to prioritize my spending, what I’m listening to, how many pairs of shoes I need, how […]

Three Tall Women It’s difficult to separate Stratford’s fine production of this enjoyable and alienating Edward Albee play from the experience of seeing it. A holdover from the cancelled 2020 season, Three Tall Women was the lone indoor performance in the Stratford 2021 season. It was staged in the intimate studio theatre with very little […]

I’m a firm believer that there is room for this kind of thing. I didn’t particularly like it, but I’ll defend its validity until I’m blue in the face because that’s how Shakespeare survives.   For this co-production with Why Not Theatre, Stratford has cast 13-year-old Eponine Lee in the female title role. This raises […]

I live in Toronto, a great city where I’m very sad to report it’s outlandishly difficult to find a good bowl of seafood chowder. I went to school in Boston, so it’s possible I’m spoiled, but the fact remains that Toronto really ought to step up their game in this particular department. Seafood in general […]

Finally There’s Sun My very favourite thing at the Stratford Festival this year, Finally There’s Sun is the concert production that puts into words the subtext of every other show- after more than a year of darkness this, right here, this sitting together in a theatre, it’s the light at the end of the tunnel.

While in-person theatre with a traditional seated audience is still making its way back slowly, one type of live event currently thriving in Toronto is the immersive experience. In the past couple weeks, I’ve had the opportunity to check out three major immersive shows happening downtown and, though none really blew me away, I cannot […]

Shakespeare’s As You Like It is my favourite play so, when the press invitation came through for the inaugural production of Crow’s Theatre’s in-person season, I was quick to RSVP. Sitting down at my first indoor Toronto venue since March 2020 to watch something billed as “a radical retelling” with a cast to be announced […]

Why We Tell Our Story Cabaret Marcus Nance absolutely killed it with the curation of this stirring celebration of Black voices. An inspired structure uses the work of iconic Black poets Langston Hughes and Maya Angelou rather than original writing to link together some of the most glorious songs from the musical theatre canon from […]

After 18 months of being cooped up in my apartment, this August I got to travel. It was a little trip- short, small in scope, largely uneventful- but it was big to me. This was my re-entry into the world outside of my East Toronto neighbourhood. It was my first time on a plane since […]

Toronto’s High Park is a theatre again.
