The folks at the Storefront Theatre have been busy mopping and cleaning since a water main break in February flooded their venue, shut them down, and forced a relocation of their February production, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew. The venue will reopen its doors to the public for the March edition of their Sing For Your Supper reading series, which matches local actors and playwrights for impromptu readings before an audience, with a chance to chat with all their participants afterward.
Mask and physical theatre innovator Rob Faust has been conducting an intensive with a dozen of Toronto’s most experienced clown and comedy performers, among them Helen Donnelly (a.k.a. Foo the clown), Allan Turner (a.k.a. Mullet the zombie clown), and Christel Bartelse, creator of solo shows ONEymoon and Significant Me. The result of their work will be a one-night-only cabaret entitled Fallen Apples, a series of “comic, poignant, and bizarre vignettes” created collectively by the cast and Faust, centred on “family dynamics.” (Be forewarned: this likely won’t be a show appropriate for the whole family.)
