It’s an all-Italian Summer for the Freewill Shakespeare Festival this year. Fawnda takes guests Matthew Stepanic and Andrea Anderson on a jaunt to the (very damp) Hawrelak Park for the company’s re-imagined Two Gentlemen of Verona, and the endearing pastoral clime of The Winter’s Tale. Do the ladies make it out okay? With ol’ Bill, well, never. But the laughs are there… right?
We’ve been off for a while, so we thought it’d be fun to do a nice fat episode this week! Guests abound, too: First, Matthew Stepanic comes in to cover MAN UP!‘s boy-lesque extravanganza in Heroes at Spazio Performativo. Then, Colleen Feehan offers some quick thoughts on The Party at the Citadel (first of a two-part review—we’ll be seeing The Candidate next week). And finally, Jane Ogilvie visits the ECF studio to dish about all the addictive qualities of flamenco in anticipation of the third annual Edmonton Flamenco Festival. Whew! Enjoy!
