February art everywhere

We discuss this theatre-stuffed month, the relative merits of grants and prizes, and an idea for a documentary Josh would love to see.

The Junos, The Citadel, and The Invisible

We look at the Edmontonians up for Junos, the Citadel Theatre's 55th season, Catalyst's upcoming production, and more.

Lotsa Broadway, festivals, and local fine crafts

We're excited about more than just Hamilton, jazzed about Silver Skate, and sad to see Alberta Branded go.

In yer face, book clubs, Blue Mondays, and cold music

We break through the cold with challenging theatre, Silver Skate music, and book-club fun.

We talk to Shumka’s executive director Darka Tarnawsky backstage at the Jubilee Auditorium, after we discuss the impact of losing the Alberta Branded shop.

Christmas Shows, 'Crackers, & Carrots

We talk about the Citadel's new A Christmas Carol, compare Nutcrackers, mourn Interstellar Rodeo, and discuss our beautiful new podcast graphic.

Who has to clean up that stage?

We chat about messy performances and our empathy for the stage crew, shopping local at The Royal Bison Art & Craft Fair, accessibility and barriers in the arts, and the music of Jay Gilday.

The art of choosing what to stage

We take a look at careful play selection, as with Bright Young Things, and random play selection, as in the Fringe lottery. In between, we have an interview with John Hudson of Shadow Theatre.

We look at Workshop West's new artistic producer, bid farewell to John Murrell, and take a tangent through Star Trek to talk about city funding for virtual reality and other screen media.
