7 Days In Ontario Theatre

  • Franchising McTheatre: Working from an argument about how the fast food industry has altered consumer behaviour (applied to religion), the blogger applies the same argument to how theatres adapt and whether that alters the art form itself?  Fast food theatre is a fascinating idea.  “Theatre is a demanding and serious art.  When it is delivered as easy and amusing, it is another kind of art altogether.”
  • Playwright Gwydion Suilebhan questions the anti-specialist notion inherent in replacing the titles of playwrights, directors, actors, designers, managers, producers with “theatre makers.”  (Emphasis mine...and, well, his)
