It’s been almost two years since I posted anything on this blog.  My life has taken a decidedly different direction so my focus is no long specific to the world of Broadway theatre.  I work on many interesting projects with people all over Canada and the US so I will now use this space to talk about what I’m up to and to shamelessly promote clients I’m working with…with the hope you may be interested.

First up is the 5th Annual Toronto Garlic Festival on September 20th,  being held in a new location this year, Artscape Wychwood Barns…check out their website for all the details.  Festival organizer Peter McClusky has just launched his new book…Ontario Garlic: The Story from Farm to Festival.  He will be there with books to sign at the festival when you take in all the many vendor’s offerings, chefs dishing up all things garlic and other special presentations.  Hope to see you there.

Louise Pitre heads to the Bruce Peninsula

So looking forward to the brilliant Louis Pitre performance at the Roxy Theatre in Owen Sound on Friday, October 12th.  I have fond memories of working with her on the television series Star Portraits, however it is her stage performances that she is best known.  Who can forget her as Fontine in the first Toronto engagement of Les Miserables.  Then of course her Tony nominated performance in Mamma Mia! a role she originated in Toronto before heading to Broadway.  The Owen Sound community is in for a spectacular night of entertainment.
