I must first admit that it took me a few days to gather my thoughts about Alumnae Theatre’s production of The Queens by Normand Chaurette, translated by Linda Gaboriau. Upon my return to Toronto after a year of participating in the Halifax theatre scene, I was very excited to get the opportunity to start my […]

The summer will soon be upon us and that means many things. It’s baseball season, Dream in High Park starts (relatively) soon, al fresco dining is back within the realm of possibility. But most important of all, it means the start of a new season at The Stratford Shakespeare Festival, my personal favourite destination for […]

I have this friend who has played many of Shakespeare’s greatest roles, heroes and villains alike. He’s tackled Aaron the moor and Richard III, Oberon, Lear and Hamlet among others. But just the other night he said something that struck me as strange, “I’ve never had any desire to play Mackers”. Now, there are jokes […]

Something You Should Read

Readers of this blog may notice a pattern. We at My Theatre are very fond of quoting, referencing and generally expressing our love for something called Slings & Arrows. In case this has confused you greatly, I’m here to clear it up. Slings is a Canadian TV show about a Shakespeare company. It’s “a comedy […]

My Theatre: My TV’s new sister site, My Theatre premiered recently with reviews of Toronto’s new hit My Mother’s Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding, a Conneticut Repertory Theatre Comedy of Errors and the national touring production of The Lion King. You’ll also find a link to Jude Law’s wonderful Hamlet-themed SNL monologue and a first-hand account […]

“Oppose not Scythia to Ambitious Rome” or How I played Demetrius and Kept My Soul So, we’re two days into a run of a play that we’ve been working on for the better part of the last five months. Now, that’s a long time, considering that the last play I was in went up in […]

A Theatrical Televisual Moment
  Kelly Bedard

It’s a rare occurrence when two of my great loves come together: Television and Shakespeare. The best example is the comedy Slings &Arrows, about the antics of a Canadian Shakespeare company. PBS airing Ian McKellan’s King Lear as part of their “Great Performances” series and his subsequent Emmy nomination is another wonderful example. When Hey […]

My Theatre is thrilled to introduce its newest author, James Melo. A Shakespeare buff and general theatre-lover, James has a bone to pick with one of the Bard’s lesser-known comedies. “I to the world am like a drop of water That in the ocean seeks another drop,” or Why William Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors is […]

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Amy Acker
  Kelly Bedard

In the first interview of our 2009 “My TV Nominee Series”, I had the amazing opportunity to speak one on one with one of My TV’s favourite actresses. The lovely and talented Ms. Amy Acker (of Angel and Alias fame) was gracious enough to take a few minutes of her time to talk about her […]

Since Brothers & Sisters‘ first season back in 2006, Matthew Rhys has been one of my favourite people on television. His complicated and endearing character Kevin Walker has also been a favourite, as well as one half of TV’s best couple: Kevin and Scotty. The 34-year-old masks an accent and tackles English as a second […]

I have a confession to make. I am a sucker for teen television shows (not the confession yet). This is pretty obvious. I love Greek, and Gossip Girl, The OC and Dawson’s Creek are on constant DVD rotation, and I’m already set up to TIVO pretty much every new CW show. So… despite my inclinations […]

Obsessions of the Week: August 13th

A Chorus Line: the movie– After watching this ridiculously outdated movie musical for the first time a couple days ago, I find myself wondering if perhaps we’re giving the So You Think You Can Dancers too much credit. Watch the dancers in this movie take on the intricate choreography and you’ll never accept a mediocre […]

The kingdom of Gilboa is where the future of TV should be headed. Programs like NBC’s new drama Kings (set in the fictional land of Gilboa) represent, in my opinion, what television shows should strive to be. Though it’s a long shot to remain on the air because of sadly predictable low ratings and an […]

The problem with the current Chuck storyline (basically, Chuck’s continuing attempts to get the Intersect out of his head and regain his normal life) is that it leaves us, as the audience, secretly rooting against our protagonist. If Chuck regains his normal life, even if he’s able to finish school and get a real job […]

I’m not very impressed with the world at this very moment. So, though I am slightly obsessed with Chuck Bass, Netflix and BU Shakespeare Society’s Twelfth Nightthis week, I will instead be handing down a list of complaints and grievances. So, my big objections of the moment are as follows: The People Who Run the […]

OK, after a week off for a family emergency, I’m back and trying to make up for lost time with a double dose of weekly obsessions…   Avenue Q I just came home from seeing the touring production. I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time- go see it. The lead plays both Princeton […]

Freaks and Geeks
  Kelly Bedard

Here’s the thing, Judd Apatow’s high school comedy Freaks and Geeks is a good show. It’s cited as one of the greats among the “brilliant but cancelled” elite, sparked a ton of young actors’ Hollywood careers and is considered one of the most painfully accurate portrayals of high school life ever on television. It has […]

Let me take a moment to complain. Why do very few shows still allow time for an opening credits sequence? Once upon a time around 8:03pm every Thursday night, an entire continent would clap along as The Rembrants sang “Ill Be There For You”; it was pretty cool. Nowadays opening title sequences have been replaced […]
