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:
