Something about the profile, maybe? And maybe a bit about a certain style of jacket? Regardless of the handsomeness factor, I always try to see at least one play each season at the outdoor Bard on the Beach festival. (I posted about the production of Macbeth I saw last season here.) In addition to Shakespeare in Love, … Continue reading Hmm. Why Do I Want to See This Play?
My younger son and I went to see the National Theatre Live broadcast of King Lear, captured the same day in a small London theatre, the same one where Ian McKellen made his West End debut in 1964. I knew that McKellen would be playing Lear, but it was a surprise for me that Sinéad … Continue reading Theatre at the Movies: King Lear
At the end of June, I went to see Macbeth at Western Canada's largest not-for-profit, professional Shakespeare festival, Bard on the Beach. My younger son read the Scottish play in his high school English class this year, so I had wanted to take him to see a performance. I thought about the National Theatre Live … Continue reading I Saw a Play and the RA Fan A to Z: F
I do love musicals, and I was lucky enough to see three different types of production in just over a week! Busy, but fun! All with good companions and none too expensive. Jersey Boys: My younger son and I went to see the touring production of Jersey Boys -- yes, that's right... my heavy-metal-loving son … Continue reading Three Musicals
Success! After 6 weeks and 6 emails sent to Digital Theatre, my purchases have finally been restored! I now have a 10-year rental of: The Interview and also The Crucible It's a good day.
Wow! What a show! This new production of the 1959 play was launched in September and is based on the 2015 national tour production. The new players bring a freshness and brightness to this much-loved musical. If the current tour it is coming to your city, I highly recommend going to see it. My expectations … Continue reading The Stage Was Alive with “The Sound of Music”
The Canadian release of Pilgrimage has finally come, albeit on iTunes. I found out about the September 5 release date only through a tweet by Get Reel Movies , who recently interviewed Richard Armitage about the movie. To me, it shows just such a total lack of interest in promoting the film that the Canadian distributor, Search … Continue reading Finally Seeing “Pilgrimage” (2017)
As designed, Digital Theatre's new service plan did not include honouring any purchases, including The Crucible and Exclusive Interview with Richard Armitage. Now, apparently, they plan to grant "long-term rentals" to us, but so far it has been impossible to get any response to individual email requests. Perry has come up with an idea to get them to … Continue reading #Armitage fans – Burned by @DigitalTheatre’s Crucible?How to Help — Armitage Agonistes
A couple of months ago, Esther kindly nominated me for a Liebster award. I happily jumped in to give my answers to Esther's questions and to nominate another eight bloggers that I would like to know more about. Four of my nominees have responded to date, so I thought I would do a recap of their … Continue reading Liebster Linkage & Recap
It's really amazing to me that I haven't seen Richard Armitage on a movie screen since The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies was out in 2014. But what a great experience it was on the weekend to see The Crucible larger than life and to even meet up with a fellow fan! My older son … Continue reading Theatre at the Movies: The Crucible
