Triple Threat with Jeffery Straker

Unlike the other performers in this year’s UnCovered: Billy Joel and Elton John (coming up November 12-13), Jeffery Straker is not a musical theatre artist first and foremost. Instead, he’s a successful Canadian musician known for his piano-based pop, much like the music of these two classic “piano men” showcased in the concert. As a touring and recording artist for over eight years, he’s the perfect person to reexamine these songs under a new perspective. We talked to him (see previous interviews with Chilina Kennedy and Jake Epstein) to learn more about his musical inspirations. More

It’s now October and we’re getting closer and closer to this year’s UnCovered concert, featuring the classic tunes of Billy Joel and Elton John re-imagined in a musical theatre style. So as November 12 and 13 inch closer, we’re “uncovering” the MT favourites of the concert’s big stars. We’ve already talked to Jake Epstein (recently returned from Broadway), and next up it’s Chilina Kennedy - a Stratford Festival favourite and new mom! More

Elegies: A Song Cycle has only 10 performances left, and we’re certain you don’t want to miss the show the Toronto Star gave 4/4 stars to.

A recent graduate of Sheridan’s Performance Musical Theatre Program, this is just the beginning for Joel and we are so psyched to see what he does next! More

Dana Jean Phoenix’s Triple Threat

This past week, we opened the final show of our tenth anniversary season: our reimagined revival of our hit 2007 production of Elegies: A Song Cycle. But as the Elegies cast continues to astound every night, our Banks Prize winners are putting the finishing touches on their cabaret, Cabaret Sauvignon. Before they perform on March 30 and 31, we asked them what makes their inner theatre geek sing: here’s what Dana Jean Phoenix had to say. More
