This past Sunday, amidst Tony Award excitement, audiences in Toronto were treated to a special performance by the man Elton John referred to as ‘the greatest songwriter on the planet’ as Rufus Wainwright took centre stage for a free concert as part of the fifth season of Luminato.  He was joined by his eight piece band and debuted all twelve tracks from his upcoming album ‘Out of the Game’.  Prior to Rufus taking the stage, many up and coming artists joined together for an hour and performed various pieces of the artist in what was lovingly called ‘The Rufus Songbook’.  

It was a gorgeous evening, and the concert took place outdoors at The Hub.  BWW was thrilled to be on hand to capture photographs from this unique event.

Kelly Cameron Kelly Cameron's love affair with the theatre began when she was just five years old, on an outing to see the Original Canadian Cast of Les Miserables at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto. She instantly fell in love, and is honoured to be representing the Toronto contingent of BroadwayWorld as Senior Editor overseeing the GTA region.

Her writing career started almost by accident, though it has always been in her blood as her Mom was an English teacher who firmly believed in the importance of being able to turn a phrase. She also loved sharing her love of theatre with her students (and her children), and was a staunch supporter of the arts in Toronto.

When not at the theatre, you can usually find Kelly with a Starbucks in one hand and her BlackBerry in the other, tweeting, reading or doing something quirky and clumsy for the sake of getting that next big story.

She's incredibly grateful to the amazing Toronto theatre community who have embraced her with open arms, giving her the greatest gift a little redheaded theatre geek could ever ask for - getting to be a part of this vibrant arts and culture scene. She may have never had the skills to be on the stage, but is thankful every day she gets to write about the inspiring people who do.
