July 12 marks the last opening night for Dancap Productions…ending a five-year ride that saw great highlights as well as lows. Once again the Toronto commercial theatre landscape has shrunk…which doesn’t bode well since healthy competition keeps everyone on their toes. Theatre is one of those businesses that can see great success one day then bankruptcy the next. It is a credit to Aubrey Dan that he hung in there this long….through some very tough times.
It was a pleasure working on Dancap’s first foray into the marketplace, Jersey Boys. A terrific team was behind bringing this production to Toronto audiences and proved to be one of my career highlights. Wishing Dan the best in whatever his next chapter is….and thanks for the memories.
