Winners of the 2020 Nathan Cohen Awards Announced

Despite an arts season drestically reduced by the COVIC-19 pandemic, the Canadian Theatre Critics Association was still able to present its 2020 Nathan cohen Awards fro excellence in critical writing.
Long-time Toronto-based dance critic Deisre Kelly won the Outstanding Review award for “Danse Macabre: Three Works by the National Ballet of Canada” - a review of one of the classical dance comoany's final performances in Toronto before the lockdowns in early March. Her review was published on March 19, 2020, by the indie digital arts publication Critics At Large.
The Outstanding Critical Essay award went to Vancouver-based theatre collaborators Quelemia Sparrow and Lois Anderson for their co-authored article “Camas Lilies and Lysistrata.” A behind-the-scenes look at the reinterpretation of Aristophane's Lystistrata for Bard on the Beach, it appeared in the winter issue of Canadian Theatre Review.
The annual awards recognise outstanding performing arts critism by Canadian-based writers published over the past theatre season. This year's guest judge was New York theatre and cultural critic Jose Solis, a New YorkTimes contributor and co-host of the podcast series Token Theatre Friends.
Mr Solis said he felt "chills" reading Miss Kelly's review, in which the critic brings an awareness of the burgoning pandemic to the subjects and performances of the National Ballet program. He called it "the perfect review for 2020, the kind where our own humanity can't help but burst from the page. It really beutifully sums up the limbo that we are in now, but I was also left with a lot of hope."
Of Ms Sparrow's and Ms Anderson's essay focussing the indigenous element of their Lysistrata production, Mr Solis said, " I was in awe of the journey that it took me on." He praised how the essay evolved from a personal account to "a devastating call to action by highlighting the unjust treatment of indigenous actors who are often asked to work twice as hard in order to find safe work conditions and thrive artistically in a dehumanizing field."
In the Review category Mr Solis gave honourable mention to Martin Morrow’s critique of The Jungle at Toronto's Tarragon Theatre, published in The Globe and Mail, andand Carly Maga’s review of the North American touring production of Cats which appeared in the Toronto Star. Honourable mentions in the Critcal Essay category went to Kelly Nestruck's piece “Reading plays in a pandemic” in the Globe and Miss Maga's Jagged Little Pill the musical offers a whole new generation permission to be angry,” published in the Star.
The Outstanding Emerging Critic award, introduced in 2019, was not given out this year but will return in 2021.
The Nathan Cohen Awards, established in 1981 by the Toronto Drama Bench, are named after the legendary Toronto Star and CBC critic Nathan Cohen (1923-1971). Since 1990, they have been administered as national awards by the Canadian Theatre Critics Association. A history of the awards and list of past recipients may be found on the CTCA website.
This year's awards were presented earlier this month at the CTCA's annual general meeting, held for the first time by video conference.

Rose Plotek: Premiere Artiste Associée au Theâtre Centaur

Le théâtre Centaur est fier d'nnoncer la récente nomination de la metteure en scène et femme de théâtre, Rpose Plotek, a titre d'artiste associée de septembre 2020 à juin 2021.
À titre d’artiste associée, Mme Plotek continuera d’assurer la direction du festival annuel Wildside, qui aura lieu en janvier comme prévu. Elle travaillera en étroite collaboration avec Mme Holmes à la planification des prochaines saisons et participera aux processus d’auditions et d’attribution des rôles. Sa perspective unique sera inestimable dans la création de nouvelles pièces et pour les nouveaux projets qui sont sur la table à dessin du Centaur, comme la discussion sur la diversité culturelle ADD@Centaur visant à pleinement intégrer la diversité dans l’infrastructure administrative du Centaur et ses réalisations artistiques, et le programme Catalyst@Centaur ayant comme objectif de soutenir activement les artistes émergents audacieux et de faire entendre leurs voix.

" In light of the current health crisis, I have had to make the heartbreaking decision to postpone Fences indefinitely, While I and Quincy Armorer (Black Theatre Workshop's artistic Director) had hoped to delay the production for a month in order for both coimpanies to end our respective seasond with this beautiful play, it is abundantly clear that the need for social distancing prevents that. I, and I'm sure all of you, take solace knowing that by doing this and continuing to abide by the mandated social distancing, we are supporting the most vulnerable in our community as well as the front line health care workers who are literally putting their lives on the line for us every day.
I cannot say at this moment when we will be able to revive Fences but we are looking for the best way to do that in the future, as amorphorous as that ids right now."
Eda Holmes, Centaur Theatre Artistic & Executive Director.

A reminder that all performances of MOB have been cancelled and all events scheduled for the remainder of the 2019/20 season have been postponed until further notice.
If you have tickets to either of these shows, the skeleton box office staff will be in touch with you to extend a full credit towards your next ticket or subscrition purchase. However, if you are able to donate your unused ticket(s) we will gratefully provice a tax receipt. It will take some time for the Company to contact all of the MOB and Fences tickets holders, so the Company ask for your patience. The Company will get around to absolutely everyone.
Centaur will stay in touch with changes as they occur and the website and social media will be updated with news about all upcoming events as well,.

The world's longest-running play of any kind, Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap is now in it's 60th year!

A West End staple for over 60 years, The Mousetrap is the longest consistently running play in the history of British theatre.

This world record breaking production continues to enthral, to entertain and to thrill audiences who still flock to the St Martin's Theatre from every corner of the globe. In her own inimitable style, Dame Agatha Christie has created an atmosphere of shuddering suspense and a brilliantly intricate plot where murder lurks around every corner....

The Mousetrap has been thrilling audiences from around the world for as long as Queen Elizabeth II has been on the throne. They have shared Silver and Ruby jubilees and recently both enjoyed their Golden celebration.

During this phenomenal run there have been no fewer than 297 actors and actresses appearing in the play, 86 miles of shirts have been ironed and over 320 tons of ice cream sold. Some cast members are in the Guinness Book of Records, David Raven as the 'Most Durable actor' for 4575 performances as Major Metcalf, and the late Nancy Seabrooke for a record breaking 15 years as an understudy.

In 2000 the set was replaced for the first time during the run at St Martin's Theatre, still to the same design as the original. This task was completed over a weekend without the loss of a performance.

Join the millions who have already discovered whodunnit, but will not share their secret...

Rose Rabbit.Lie
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

Vegas Nocturne by Spiegelworld

Ross Mollison's Spiegelworld is operating from the new social club Rose.Rabbit.Lie. at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Reinventing the oncept of the immense supper clubg of a bygone era, the venue combines bar, restaurant, nightclub and tickets show all under the one roof and into one evening's experience for those patrons who choose to go to it.
|Celeberities walking the red carpet at the weekend's grand opening included Neil Patrick Harris and Australia's own Human Nature who have a resident show in Las Vegas.
The anchor ticketed entertainment at the club is Vegas Nocturne, created by Spiegelworld and directed by former Sydney Theatre Company director Wayne Harrison. Each night an epic seven hours of material unfolds, involving 38 performers from around the world. No two patrons can possibly witness the same thing. Other Australians on the creative team include Academy-winning costume designer Angus Strathie and choreographers Dein Perry, Gideon Obarzanek and Lucas Newland.
Visitors to Rose Rabbit,Lie. first enter an octagonal, mansion-like antechamber with eight doors each leading to different places. This id the opulent home of debonair millionaire Alfonsono Buzukhov and his crass sister Beverly, their servants and a host of eccentric characters. Whether you choose to order a craft cocktail in the study where old 45s can be played on a record player, or sit sown to dinner in the libgrary there is always something unexpected going on around you.
One dining area offers a "backstage" view of the big room's show where sofa's, chairs and VIP boxes circle the dtage and bars line each side wall.
The 8pm performance or 'canto' of Vegas Nocturne is a 90-minute revue of neo-vaudeville and acrobatics that radically extends on the concepts of Spiegelworld's acclaimed spiegeltent shows.
Ross Mollison for Vegas Nocturne, had assembled some of the world's greatest artists including Captain Frodo, David O'Mer (Bath Boy) and Piff the Magic Dragon as well as acrobats, contortionists, singers, beat-boxers, tap dancers, fire breathers and comic actor.
At 10pm the seating is reduced from 500 to 200, and the show is short term with different content. At midnight it's shorter still, seueing into a riotuous dance club enviroment with a DJ as the wall panels open up, unifying the different into more of a single space.

Aurora Theatre




Pktheatre.com has been advised by John Costello of Aurora Theatre that because of the coronavirus the production of Loot has been chancelled.
As the company has leardned in the past couple of weeks - with increasing intesity in the last few days - social distancing is key to slowing the spread of the virus and thus preventing the healthcare system from being overwhelmed. Thursday mortning, Governor Newsom announced a recommended ban on gatherings of over 250 people and that smaller gatherings - such as Aurireas performences - should allow six feet space between participants. That is not possible in Aurora's intimate space.
As with many organizations, this change of plans will affect the Aurora community in many different ways. Our artists will have less work, which makes it even more difficult to meet expenses in the Bay Area. Aurora will have less income from ticketr sales. While Aurora can cut back some expenses, out margind - like all non-profit theatres - are so slim that this is going to at the very least burn through any funds Aurora have and may impact our future plans.Josh
Josh and Julia have decided that a s leaders of
Aurora they ill reduce their opwn pay for the duration of this crisis.
Aurora makes the challenging decision to cancel the production of Loot forthe sake of the larger community, they hope that those who are able to support us in return, as one part pf the community. While they consider offering refunds for subscribers and other ticket-holders, Josh asks that you consider donating your ticket to Loot back to Aurora instead of asking for a refund. If enough of Aurora;s audience does this, it will go a long way towards helping Aurora mitigate the increased challenge they are now facing. If you are in a position top make an additional; donation, that of course will be particularly welcome right now.
Ticket holders, if our box office does not hear from you in the nect two weeks we will contact you to ask if you would conate your ticket back or if you prefer a refund. Aurora's box office number is 510 843 4822 and they are open Tuesday through Fricay from 1pm to 5pm. You can also send an email with your information to boxoffice@auroratheatre.org. Please do be patient as we expect high call volume during this time.
Josh has great hope and strong expectations that the measures so many organizations are adopting will slow the spread and save lives - and that Aurora and other arts organizations will be ablet to reopen soon and continue serving as a vital fuction as storytellers for the community. The announcement of the 2020-2021 Season is coming very soon, and even as Josh mourns the cancellation of Loot he looks forward to a remarkable future for Aurora>
Thank you so much for your patience, uindetstanding , and support in this difficult time.

The Bluest Eye by Tom Morrison

Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Morrison's cebut novel, The Bluest Eye comes to Autora in a stunning adaptation by playwright Lydia R. Diamond.
Percola Breedlove is obsessed wti Shirley Temple and a desire to have blue eyes. Claudia, another young girl and one of Pecola's only friends, guides us through this tauntingly lyrical memory play.
Diamond expertly translates to the stage the emotional depths of Black girlhood, the poisonous effects of racism and the heartbreak of shame in Morrison's work. Celebrated for a "prous and unrelenting vision," ( The New Yorker) sets The Bluest Eye in her hometown of Lorain, Ohio, and ploaces three young Black girls - Claudia, Pecola and Frieda - center stage as they strive to make sense of love, sisterhood, abuse and hate.
Coming Spring 2021.

Colonialism is Terrible but Pho is Delicious

Dustin Chin's Colonialism is Terrible but Pho is Delicious took its inspiration from two viral incidents around cultural appropiation and food (Chef Tyler Alan did a hon-to-video Bon Appetit," PSA. this is How You Should e Eating Pho" and Dan Pashman of The Sporkful suggested you could improve bibimbap using a bundt pan) Chin says he "followed the rabbit hole" and qrote Colonialism what he dubs "a triptch about the ownership and authorship of food following the journey of Vietnamese noofle soup. this dark comedy spans centuries, continents, and cultures in a three-part vignette structure. Beginning in 1860s Hanoi, the capital city of 19th century French Indochina, where a Vietnamese cook finds himself in the kitchen of aristocratic French settlers. Then 1999, a century later, in Ho Chi Minh City. where American diners get their first taste of the local cuisine. Then finally, a present day, gentrifying Brooklyn, where the simmering argument around culture, ownership, and authencity come to a roaring boil.
