Greetings, Maniacs - hopefully some of you are taking advantage of the warmer weather to crawl out of hibernation, shake off the winter slumbers, and wade into the Ottawa-Gatineau scene >:]
I'm sure winter still has some ugly to work off, but don't let that stop you from enjoying the talent taking place all over the chilly capital. Coming up fast: Phantom of the Opry at the Gladstone Theatre!
Written, scored, directed and performed by local creators. Please support this creative musical theatre twist on a revered classic. Playing February 22 - 27, get your tickets now... matinee and evening performances are scheduled.
File this under "If I'd-a known about it, I'd-a blogged about it:" last Friday at the last minute I attended a brilliant performance of Schoolhouse at the Kanata Theatre.
A thought-provoking play, performed with authenticity, warmth, humour and lots of heart. The Ron Maslin playhouse is well-known for recruiting excellent talent both in front of and behind the scenes, so SceneRazR will be on the ball next time so we can give you a heads-up about what's on their calendar.
Speaking of which: What's next for SceneRazr? Please keep an eye on this page, as there is an interview in the hopper with Ottawa writer Matt Moore.
Matt's oeuvre of choice is "dark genre" short fiction - a passion which has also led to him becoming co-Chair of the Ottawa Chiaroscuro Reading Series. Full-length interview with Matt is coming shortly >:]
Response was so favourable to the post we did with Kim Valentine that we had to hustle up more Ottawa artists to share their stories. More info as we get these lined up.
So fear not the Ides of March... lots of wicked this way comes...
