Throwback Thursdays - Wayne Gwillim on John & Jen

As we bid adieu to Elegies: A Song Cycle, we share with you a final #tbt from the cast and creative team of this amazing show. Wayne Gwillim was an integral part of most of our earlier shows, including John & Jen, the second production we ever produced. Here are his memories of his time as music director on that show. More

Throwback Thursdays - Sarah-Jeanne Hosie on Falsettos

This weekend is the closing weekend of Elegies: A Song Cycle, and we will be so sad to see this one go. So, as one last tribute to the amazing William Finn, today’s throwback is brought to your courtesy of Sarah-Jeanne Hosie, or one of the “lesbians-from-next-door” from last year’s Falsettos.

Today, she takes some time to reflect on this awesome shot of herself from The Long and Winding Road. More

Throwback Thursdays - Bree Greig and Dmitry Chepovetsky on A Craigslist Cantata

For today’s throwback, we asked Bree Greig (who is wrapping up the Edmonton run) and Dmitry Chepovetsky (who is part of the National Arts Centre’s 2013-14 company) to take a moment to reflect on this shot from last year’s incredible production at Factory Theatre.
