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?

2018 Vacation #2: Toronto, Ontario
I wonder if I can trick myself into thinking it's still summer, if I go back a month to my Toronto trip.

Over the past year, … Continue reading Alternative to GUY-liner?
Because I’m Missing Sir Guy
In October, in honour of the 10th Anniversary of Robin Hood, I started re-watching Richard Armitage as Sir Guy of Gisborne in BBC’s Robin Hood.

In the midst of a show that is comic-book … Continue reading Because I’m Missing Sir Guy
