Making Love in a Canoe

Written by Dennis Kucherawy

Very Clever New CD of all-Canadian Musical Theatre Revue Fun-Filled and Well-Performed

If your idea of Canadian musicals is “artist-led, story-driven” shows with “creative integrity” and “honest storytelling” that “aim to be edgy and accessible” … yawn … “evocative and modern, socially relevant” … blah, blah, blah … then this CD is not for you.

Leave those efforts to the “Never Ready for Curtain Time Players” and other dilettantish cliques who pass themselves off as “companies.”

Les Miz - Original co-director John Caird Remembers

Twenty-eight years ago, Canadian-born director John Caird, and his colleagues at London’s Royal Shakespeare Company, rehearsed a musical for only seven weeks that was only about a quarter written. It opened on Oct. 8, 1985 at London’s Barbican Centre to devastating reviews.

“A lurid Victorian melodrama produced with Victorian lavishness,” sniffed Francis King of the Sunday Telegraph. Michael Ratcliffe of The Observer dismissed it as “A witless and synthetic entertainment.” 

It became a universal sensation, one of the most successful musicals ever.

Life Well Done With a Side of Music

Written by Dane Taylor

I can’t remember a time when Song and Script hasn’t been a part of my adult life. If a retail store could tell stories, what would those stories be about? Well they would be about people. About the people who worked there. The people who shopped. The browsers. The TWs or Time Wasters. The neighbours that you like and the crazies that you can hopefully avoid. Its about the neighbourhood. Yorkville.
