  • Introduction: The Musicals Issue
    • Abstract: Canadian musical theatre is having a moment.As I write these words in the spring of 2017, there is news that Come From Away has entered the "one million club" for weekly grosses on Broadway (joining the likes of The Lion King, Wicked, and Phantom of the Opera), and that it has been nominated for seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. There is also news that it has been nominated for Best New Musical by the New York Drama League alongside another recent Canadian transplant, Ride The Cyclone. North of the border, the Char-lottetown Festival has announced a new $50,000 fund for the development of Canadian musicals; Catalyst Theatre's Vigilante is closing out a successful tour with a run at the National Arts ...

  • In Development: The Joys and Challenges of Fostering New Musicals
    • Abstract: You've both committed a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to supporting new musicals. What is it that excites you about the form'In its essence, it's very theatrical. When someone breaks into song, it asks both the audience and the actor to balance the natural with the unnatural, and I think that's a marvelous thing. The audience is asked to suspend their disbelief and go on a theatrical ride with you. Because of that, I find myself as an artist willing to go to higher extremes and to have a larger imagination.In a musical, when spoken words aren't enough, you sing, and I think given what's happening in the world right now, we need to sing. We need music. It's about hope, and it's about connecting people—sometimes ... Read More

    • Abstract: (l–r): Dmitry Chepovetsky, Bree Greig, Selina Martin and Daren A. Herbert in Do You Want What I Have Got' A Craigslist Cantata by Veda Hille, Bill Richardson and Amiel Gladstone. Directed by Amiel Gladstone. Produced by Acting Up Stage Company & Factory Theatre, 2013.Photo by Joanna Akyol (courtesy of The Musical Stage Company)MITCHELL: We started putting money into new musical development for the first time in 2010, so we're going on six or seven years where there has been an investment in research and development. We can put seed money in early as a commission and provide dramaturgical support, and then we can jump in at the very end and produce the production, line up partners and tour. It's the middle phase of ... Read More

  • "Is It Small Enough'": The Issue of Scale in Canadian Musical Theatre
    • Abstract: When thinking about what is happening in Canadian musical theatre right now (and it is an exciting time), I immediately began to think in terms of scale. It feels like we're on the edge of something transformative with new Canadian musicals making their way onto larger and larger stages. As a musical theatre writer-composer, my largest show—Ike and Pearl—has a cast of five (and a band of five) and my most successful show—The Way Back To Thursday—has a cast of two (and a band of two). I don't know if the scale of the work influenced its success in terms of critical or artistic acclaim, but I do know that the scale of the work influenced the choice to program it at Theatre Passe Muraille in 2014. For me, the issue of ... Read More

  • Intermezzo: Is There a Canadian Musical Theatre'
    • Abstract: Canadian musicals feel more quirky, more meandering, more complicated. It's refreshing raw material. It's funny; the few times when my work has gone down into the States for more development, after what I would characterize as successful runs in Canada, I have been told, "Oh. It's going to need more brashness, it's different in New York." The producers push for more clarity and directness. In my very limited experience, it seems Americans want their musicals in a commercial package. US producers feel that Canadian musicals are delicate, nuanced, and hopefully starting to find their footing. So, I guess I am answering it more by what happens when Canadian musicals go into the States. In other terms, look at the most ... Read More

           Musical Theatre Today
    • Abstract: What have you been noticing in the writers at the CMTWC [Canadian Musical Theatre Writers Collective] workshop, especially new and young writers' And what do you think it means for Canadian musical theatre at large'Well I know when I started teaching in Composium1 last year I was amazed at how much talent there was. I know that sounds shallow and Pollyanna-ish, but I didn't realize there were so many really not just talented but well-trained [writers], like the Scott Christians and the Kevin Wong, the people who really know what they're doing. I thought I was going to run into a whole lot of people who didn't know how to rhyme, who just wrote pop stuff—and I have nothing against pop stuff—I just mean people who ... Read More

  • Good Pain and Bad Pain: Talking About Writing Musicals (in Canada)
    • Abstract: What makes a musical theatre song different from other types of songwriting, like a pop song'A pop song is often representing something universal. You want to listen to it on the radio, and sing along with it as yourself. A musical theatre song can do that too, but the integrity of the character has to be a part of it. You have to get inside their journey, follow it through, and let it dictate your choices, or else the song is not going to be playable on stage. My music has a bit of a pop sensibility, but there always comes a moment where I think, if I were the actor playing this on stage, would I be able to hold this for the entire length of time that it's happening, make it interesting, and connect to it' That's ...

  • The Next Generation
    • Abstract: As part of this issue of CTR, we've been asking some musical theatre writers to share their ideas about what, if anything, defines a 'Canadian musical.' What are your thoughts on that'When I knew that we were going to do this, I went back and looked at something John Gray said that I had stumbled upon when I was still a teenager. Gray thought that Canadians had trouble with fourth-wall musicals. They didn't like eavesdropping on other people's conversations. Whenever the form of the show involved talking to the audience directly, he could feel them relaxing and buying into it. Maybe it felt more like people hanging out at the bar, or sitting in the kitchen playing songs and telling stories. And it's funny, when I ... Read More

  • Intermezzo: Is There a Canadian Musical Theatre'
    • Abstract: I think a Canadian musical is just by someone who comes from Canada. It's simplistic sounding, but what it really means in practice is that the piece will carry some part of our diverse and multifaceted experience within it.There's a magic to the stillness in a lot of our stories. Even in our musical theatre, there's something in the negative space, in paying attention to what we don't say as much as what we do say.Ultimately, the voice that comes through in the writing is going to be representative of a Canadian voice, which is as close as one gets to defining it; it can't be distilled into just one essence or one thing.Kevin Wong (Recurring John, music & lyrics: Misprint, The Preposterous Posthumous Predicament ...

  • The Need of a Good Story: Understanding Come From Away's Warm Reception
    • Abstract: Watching The Tragically Hip's final concert broadcast live on St. John's's George Street, I thought I might never again be a part of an audience that felt such unabashed love for a performance. Then, a few months later, I had a comparable experience at the opening night of Come From Away at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto. Gander, Newfoundland mayor Claude Elliott, depicted in the musical and invited to Toronto for the opening, noted in a speech after the show that "the world we live in today needs a good story—." The audience cheered loudly over the rest of his sentence, a response that may have been as much a gesture of appreciation for the musical as it was a cathartic release of tension following from ...

I'd worked with Brian Richmond, Jacob's father, who was then Chair of the University of Victoria Department of Theatre, which is how I'd heard about it. At the audition, Jacob Richmond and Brooke Maxwell (the writers) taught me both Ricky Potts's and Noel's songs. I think it was clear from the start that Noel was in my natural wheelhouse. (Laughs.) So, I came on board for the workshop, which we did at a Ukranian church in Victoria in September 2008.Then, in March of 2009, we performed a ninety-minute version presented by Intrepid ... Read More

It was never talked about, never something that was included in our school curriculum, and definitely not something my family spoke about.

How did that project come about'Kevin and I were matched up by Mitchell Marcus through Acting Up Stage [now The Musical Stage Company]. We had both participated in their NoteWorthy program, but at separate times, and had never met until Mitchell thought to match us up for Reframed. It was the best blind date I've ever been on! We became fast friends, and really keyed into our idea for Reframed together. The assignment was to create twenty-five minutes of a musical—something that would be palatable ... Read More

  • Editorial: Queering Our Futures
    • Abstract: In Cruising Utopia: The Then and There of Queer Futurity, José Esteban Muñoz draws on "the queer utopianism [he] locate[s] within a historically specific nexus of cultural production before, around, and slightly after the Stonewall rebellion of 1969," so that he might highlight the utopian future promised within queerness (3). Muñoz's understanding of queerness is that it is never now or here, but can be "distilled from the past and used to imagine a future" (1). For Muñoz, queerness reminds us of the present's shortcomings: "a thing that lets us feel that this world is not enough, that indeed something is missing" (1). Installed in the present, but always continually pointing to the past and the future, he argues ... Read More

  • Hybrid between a Subjective and Critical Reflection on Q2Q: Symposium on

The Q2Q: Symposium on Queer Theatre and Performance, organized by Peter Dickinson at Simon Fraser University and Chris Gatchalian at the frank theatre company, took place at Simon Fraser University's Goldcorp Centre of the Arts in Vancouver, 20–24 July 2016.

On 20 July, fourteen Queer, Trans, Indigenous, Black, and other theatre and performance artists of colour (QTIBPOC) came together prior to the opening of Q2Q for a day-long session called "Intersecting." As a QTIBPOC performance poet and arts-based educator, I was asked to design and facilitate a session based on responses to a set of questions sent out to those attending. Taking the time to identity key themes and powerful questions from the responses and framing the session around this allowed for a space where people could see their experiences reflected in every ...

I was lucky enough to be one of those attending this historic event. The brainchild of SFU's Professor Peter Dickinson and the frank theatre company's Artistic Director Chris Gatchalian, Q2Q was Canada's first national conference on queer theatre and performance ever—which, if you think about it, is shocking, given the fact that Canada is the home to the world's largest and longest-running queer theatre, Toronto's Buddies in Bad Times.

  • Twenty-Six Observations on a Queer Theatre Conference
    • Abstract: For the 2016 Q2Q conference I bought a new notebook. I attended every panel over the three and half days of the conference. This is what I learned.—There is no collective identity in queer.—Queer theatre is a contentious concept. It coalesces around unstable conditions.—"Identity Politics Is the Elephant in the Room."—We need to develop a queer etiquette for conversations around the topics of race, class, ability, age, gender, and sex.—Gender has potential (symbolically; really).—Queer pasts are haunted; gay history is white.—Snacks bring people together.—In order to make queer theatre we'd have to create the way we fuck.—When we talk about fucking as creative practice we mean the beautiful, artful kind of fucking ...

  • To Blow or Not to Blow': Thoughts about Self-Censorship
    • Abstract: I was delighted last year when Q2Q, a symposium in Vancouver about queer theatre and performance in Canada, asked me to speak on a panel entitled "Queer Theatre and Performance Now." With such a broad topic, I decided to focus on something that feels pressing in my artistic practice—here is what I had to say about self-censorship.I hover backstage waiting to start my one-man show, X, in a small Canadian city, population 20,000. As far as I know, this is the first show by a trans artist programmed in the theatre's main season, and it may also be the first with explicitly queer content. The theatre is almost full—250 mostly straight folks shuffle in their seats as I burst onto the stage. The audience is quick to warm ... Read More
