Edmonton downstage | 05.01.2015

Welcome to 2015 everyone! Checking out Theatre Alberta’s Playbill, it looks like 2015 will be just as jam-packed with great theatre as 2014 was.

  • Opening this week:
    • Shout! The Mod Musical, January 7 – 10 at C103. (Watch for my interview/preview with Director and Orange Girl, Kristen Finlay publishing this afternoon.)
    • Die-Nasty’s 24th season starts up again today, January 5.
  • I love Vue Weekly’s round up of theatre trends in 2014 and Liz’ look back at memorable shows, people, and experiments of 2014
  • Liz’ spotlight on 5 theatre artists to watch in 2015 is also a great read. Congrats to all on the list!
  • The What it is Podcast released episode 61: Free of Problems with Morgan Smith, Joleen Ballendine, (of Human Loser Theatre and upcoming production of Cheerleader) and comedian Ryan Ash.
  • Canoe Theatre Festival is coming up at the end of this month! Check out my preview interview with Workshop West Artistic Director Vern Thiessen.
  • And, for something different, I love the imagery of this poster for Three Penny Opera:
