  • Of course, on everyone’s mind this week was the fire at the Roxy Theatre. Here are a few articles I’ll point you to, if you haven’t seen them already:
  • The What it is Podcast released episode 62: But, But… Problems, which discusses the fire at the Roxy as well as Promise Productions’ new show, Birdie on the Wrong Bus.
  • Walterdale Theatre’s next show is Jeffery and plays February 4 – 14. The play takes place in New York at the height of the AIDS epidemic and follows Richard Jeffery, a gay man who has decided to be celibate out of fear of falling in love with someone who has AIDS and is bound to die. As a lead-up to the show, Kristen is posting interviews with the cast of Jeffery on Walterdale’s blog.
  • And finally, in preparation for the 2015 Canoe Theatre Festival (which I’ll be bombarding you with previews for later this week), I’ll leave you with this odd, yet fitting promo video for Toy Guns’ show Fortuitous Endings:
