Road to Opening Week 15: Matt Armet on Opening Week at A CHORUS LINE in Stratford
by Guest Blogger: Matt Armet - May 30, 2016

All I want to be is just happy.' It's one of Bobby's lines in the final scene of the show. I actually think that I'm the happiest I've ever been in my life. I'm doing a fantastic version of my favourite show on my favourite stage in the country with some of my favourite people in the world. (Ok, the teen burger, fries and root beer I'm currently eating after finishing our last onstage rehearsal is probably helping, and so will the ice cream cake that's going to follow! But that's beside the point.) This whole journey has been incredible: from the auditions, to booking the job, to the first day of rehearsal, and all of the blood, sweat and tears in between. I would not change it for the world. (more...)

BWW Review: BLACKBERRY WINTER at the Kitchen Dog Theater

Our parents are the people who raised us. They taught us things, kept an eye on us, bathed us, changed our diapers, and most significantly, they provided us with an over abundance of memories that ultimately helped shape who we are as we age and grow. But, now bare with me for a moment, what if an underground mole could dig its way into your mind and rob you of those treasured memories? This is the crux of the creation myth for Alzheimer's disease developed by Vivienne Avery, the primary character in Steve Yockey's new play, Blackberry Winter, presented by the Kitchen Dog Theatre (KDT) as the first play in their eighteenth annual New Works Festival, in residence at the Undermain Theatre. A one-woman show is a rather difficult undertaking and KDT Artistic Company Member, Karen Parrish, undertook this project with an intensity that left the audience filled with emotion, laughter and tears, sometimes simultaneously.
