Day 152 – Getting High

Today, the Fringe was officially launched.  Tickets are now on sale for performances running from June 17th to the 27th.  Forgive me if this sounds like an advertisement.  It’s not meant to be. …though business-Natalie can’t help but spread the word as much as possible… I’ve been shaking all day.  The excitement was almost unbearable.  … Continue reading

I’ve said it many times before that a huge part of a theatre director’s job is casting.  If it’s good, then the show is usually good too.  Well I’m finally getting a taste of what that’s like in the business world too.

Day 41 – Generations

Today’s beautiful moment is brought to you by the Ottawa Fringe Festival. I had a meeting today with two great guys.  I’ll give you a hint: they’re both past Fringe Executive Producers and are both still highly involved in current Fringe activities. At one point, we were standing outside in the sunshine on Rideau street.  … Continue reading
