HERE'S WHAT'S NEW:

Well, my "little vacation" ended up lasting two and a half years... funny how life steers your life in directions you weren't planning on. I'll start off with occasional posts, but I fully plan to resume this blog to full speed by the new year.

I hope you'll come back for frequent visits, to see new reviews, to share opinions, to take a survey (or two), and to celebrate the shows and show people that have made the TheatreScene!

Mr. August 2013
Brent Carver

WHY HE'S MR. BROADWAY: It is hard to believe that it was 20 years ago that Brent Carver took the international theatre community (Toronto, London, New York) by storm with his career-making turn as Molina in Kiss of the Spider Woman, which earned him the Theatre World, Drama Desk and Tony Awards.  Since then, he's been back on Broadway twice, in King Lear and in his Tony-nominated performance as Leo Frank in Parade.  Though its been awhile since he's been back, he has been a fixture on the Canadian stage and screen.  Now, he's getting ready to start previews in another Shakespearean classic as Friar Laurence in Romeo and Juliet.  Welcome back, Brent!  I can't think of a better reason to name him Mr. Broadway August 2013.

FUN FACTS:
  • He was born in Cranbrook, British Columbia, Canada.
  • He's a Scorpio, born on November 15th.
  • He has nearly 50 television and film credits.
  • He's a three time Gemini Award winner (the Canadian version of the Emmy Award).
  • The production of Lord of the Rings: The Musical in which he played Gandalf, ran 3 and half hours!
