Robin Hood: The Legendary Musical (Hart House Theatre)

9/10 (+1) Last night my wife and I went to see Hart House Theatre’s offering of “Robin Hood: The Legendary Musical”. We laughed and laughed and laughed. Then there was intermission and after intermission we laughed and laughed some more. While Robin Hood the musical is definitely filled to the brim with laughs, it manages […]

The Necessity of Theatre (by Paul Woodruff)

6/10 (-2) I will admit that I was expecting more from this book. With a title like “The Necessity of Theatre” it gives one the expectation that there is some great revelation in it. Woodruff, while quite articulate, takes far too long to get to his point. In the process of getting there he lost […]

Vic Harbour (TO Fringe 2012)

8/10 (+1) So, I’m not really in the habit of writing reviews for theatre. Not because I don’t like it, I LOVE theatre, but because theatre is, in one way specifically, even more difficult to comment on: each night is new! Each performance is unique because it’s LIVE! The benefit to film is that you […]

Arts For All Essentials – 2012

Wow. That’s really all I can say at this moment. Wow. I recently attended Jumblies Theatre’s Arts 4All Essentials 6-day workshop/conference here in TO. It was a very full and buys time of discovery, networking and art creation. If you are an artist in Canada who engages with a specific community, or not, this is […]
