was definitely worth the wait!

I’m losing my editor (to a good cause, she’s transferring things she learned at Mooney on Theatre to pursue her children’s book series with more gusto) and am now on the search for a new one.
The position will let you participate in all of the nitty gritty of an edited online publication, and is a great learning experience (and, of course, good resume fodder).

Canadian Opera Company presents a visually impressive production of Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman
The Canadian Opera Company’s (COC’s) production of Richard Wagner’s famous opera The Flying Dutchman, now playing at The Four Seasons Centre For The Performing Arts, is very beautiful and certainly well worth seeing.
While most operas have simple and often contrived plots, The Flying Dutchman, much like Wagner’s other masterpiece, Tristan and Isolde, has a seemingly simple plot centred around a love story that is, in actuality, incredibly complicated and convoluted.

Mirvish has brought Mamma Mia! the musical back to eager Toronto theatre audiences
You’ve seen the movie. You’ve heard the music. Mamma Mia! has been a sensation since it opened in London’s West-End. But Toronto’s relationship to this blockbuster musical has always been, well, personal.
The first North American city to mount this ABBA-inspired spectacle, Toronto was the incubator for the original Broadway production and at least one touring cast, hosting the successful phenomenon for just over 5 years.
