Torontoist Presents: Ask a Theatre Dude!

Dear Theatre Dude,
I don’t have anything to do tonight and was hoping to catch a play that explored psychoanalysis, nature
and capitalism. If possible, I’d like said play to do this through story, question sessions and video projections. Thanks,
Hard for Avant-Garde

You should, like, totally check out Revolutions in Therapy, which opens in previews tonight at Artword Theatre. Written and directed by Nadia Ross and Jacob Wren, RiT is totally like a bold new work which touches on our deepest personal and collective concerns, right?
Dear Theatre Dude,
Remember when that guy John Christian Quinn got his parents to mortgage their house so he could put on a stage version of Reservoir Dogs in a Queen West warehouse? That was f–kin’ awesome, man. But I wish it had been funnier and starred more women.
Rock it!
Rezzy Dawg

Yo R.D.,
Oh yeah! I’m totally stuck in the middle wit’cha! We oughta totally get our booyas down to Reservoir Bitches. This all-female parody of Reservoir Dogs by Laura Ghee opens at the Stealth Room (22 Cumberland) tonight and stars some of Toronto’s most hysterical women. (Note: Reservoir Bitches is not a stage adaptation of the 1994 porno of the same name.)
Dear Theatre Dude,
Your approximation of DudeSpeak is really bad. You’re not a dude at all. And you’re clearly just making these letters up.
No Fool

Dear No Fool,
It’s true. I’m just a guy trying to figure out some way to blog about stuff, for instance that Trevor Rhone’s Two Can Play is opening in previews tonight at the Berkeley Street Theatre, without coming right out and saying that Obsidian Theatre’s production of this “hilarious look at love and life…. Jamaica style!” directed by ahdri zhina mandiela and starring the excellent Karen Robinson opens in previews tonight at the Berkeley Street Theatre. So sue me.
Now, if you’ll excuse the Theatre Dude: Surf’s up! Gnarly! Um…
