Spent yesterday working on the road (well, the train) on my way to and from Ottawa to see a matinée of Michael Healey’s Proud. We opened it a year and four days ago at Berkeley Street and I wanted to see it, a sort of closing of the circle of all the work that went into it.

I was indeed Proud. Congratulations and thank you to GCTC, to Michael, to everyone involved. Here are some not great pictures. 🙂

My train reading BTW was The Art of Thinking Clearly, which is quite similar to You Are Not So Smart.  Both are easy reads in that the chapters are short (really short) and straightforward, but they are pretty good in terms of making you think. Take a look.

Reminder The GAME is coming up on October 7th at Theatre Passe Muraille – hope to see you there!

The Promised Arts PSAs

PLAY-ProudI said yesterday that once I’d finished shaking my head, I’d be back today with a stack of art-type PSAs . Lisa and I have compiled  the following.
Actually, before we get to them, I wanted to tell you how immensely thrilled I am that Proud has been picked up by GCTC in Ottawa to open their 2013 season in September. So very, very pleased.

1) The Gladstone Hotel offers life-drawing classes almost every Wednesday night at 8 pm, usually in the Art Bar. Bring your own materials.

2) Call for Submissions: Applications Open for the Next Stage Theatre Festival – click here for details.

3) Seth Godin’s Field Guide to the Meeting Troll – we’ve all been in meetings with this person.

4) From Imagine Canada – Five Common Mistakes in Grant Writing

5) Call for Submissions: StART Mural Program, StreetARToronto and an excellent accompanying article about street art

6) The 2013 Fringe Festival is just around the corner, and having completed the first read-through of Dan Reddican’s musical It’s Always You  last week, the hunt for rehearsal spaces has begun. Luckily for us (and you!) the Fringe has compiled a list of rehearsal spaces around the city. It’s a reliable and comprehensive list with specific details about sizing and pricing, and it will depend on what suits your needs. Our top three spaces so far are COBA (585 Dundas St. E, Suite 130 Daniels Spectrum), the Bloor St. United Church (300 Bloor Street W) and Lower Ossington Theatre (100A Ossington Ave).

7) And finally – further to yesterday’s post about your product and your brand – from courtesy a friend of mine – How to Communicate in the Midst of Tragedy.  Number Six is a doozy.
