Our 2010 Winnipeg Fringe Numbers Are In! We Broke Even (Or So I Shall Claim)!

August 8, 2010


I’m going to claim we broke even, even though we really posted a $130 loss. Why? We overspent on some printing costs for the sake of convenience. Had we been a little more disciplined, I’m sure that $130 deficit would have melted away. Also, we made a small profit in Ottawa. If we add up […]

A Fringe Reflection: The Long Snap Of Unexpected Success

July 27, 2010


Time isn’t a jet plane; it’s an elastic band. The experience of our time in Winnipeg went very slow — like the slow deliberate stretch of an elastic band — and then it snapped to a quick and unexpected finish. After spending several days feeling like we had been out west for a very long […]

Rolling Thunder and Rolling Laughter: The G-Men Open At The 2010 Winnipeg Fringe!

July 18, 2010


Despite a lot of commie thunder, lightening, and rain, the opening of G-Men Defectives at the 2010 Winnipeg Fringe was a great success! We had a good-sized and very responsive audience (coaxed along by the the VERY responsive Zach Council)! Our performances were bang-on. We had a lot of fun. And the audience did too, […]

The G-Men Go To Summer Camp: The 2010 Winnipeg Fringe Storms Into Life!

July 15, 2010


More than one Fringe pal — old and new — has said the Winnipeg Fringe feels a lot like summer camp. Theatre folk descend on Winnipeg from all over the world. Everyone is ready to make new friends and reconnect with old friends from the year before and, in many cases, from the years before. […]

Busy, Busy, Busy Bee! A Different Kind of Ottawa Fringe For Me!

June 8, 2010


My 2010 Ottawa Fringe experience is likely to be very different from my 2009 Ottawa Fringe experience. This year, I’m appearing in two shows which means I will perform two shows a night for a week and, on the second Saturday, four shows in one day. Four shows! For the record, when Ray and I […]

Good Brain; Good Brain: Kudos For Leaving The Made-Up Drama In Our Dream World

July 6, 2009


I slept in today. Until noon. I had set the alarm but I got up, turned it off, and went back to bed. The good old trick of leaving the radio on had little effect. Oops. The sleep-in was long overdue but also a little restless. I had another crazy dream. I was battling and […]

Ottawa Fringe Day 13: The Morning After (or the Lack)

June 30, 2009


It felt very strange not to start the day by checking my Fringe guide and figuring out what shows I could or could not see. Fortunately, I was initially distracted by my open audition call for the GCTC. Essentially, an open audition call is just a chance for the Artistic Director to get a look […]
