Hello, Fellow Social Isolators! Like you, we’re determined to do all we can to #FlattenTheCurve and limit this COVID-19 horror show as much as possible. We’re donating where we can, but mostly we’re staying out of the way, hauled up alone in our apartments riding it out so we don’t contribute to the spread of this thing. So that means we’re bored. We’re lonely and we’re bored and we’re really upset about all the theatre/concerts/films/sports/everything that we’re unable to attend. So we decided to do something about it. We’re starting a club. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday while we’re distancing ourselves physically, we’re going to find each other online to do one of our very favourite things- talk about movies. This episode we’re discussing the 2016 sci-fi hit Arrival, written by Eric Heisserer and directed by Denis Villeneuve. Check out our previous episodes: Contagion Anna and the Apocalypse We’ll be back soon with our next movie. Stay tuned to @MyEntWorld on twitter and instagram for updates on what movies are coming up next so you can watch along with us. Stay safe, everyone. We’ll get through this together.

L F Army hopes to give a voice to the legion of Leafs fans that bleed blue through the highs and lows of a team that’s shifted from Ballard to Babcock on their quest to (hopefully) being reunited with Lord Stanley’s mug. Welcome to *H-E-double hockey sticks.* At least, that’s how Leaf’s Nation seems to be reacting to the absence of Auston Matthews and…some Swedish kid (we here at LFArmy don’t want to talk about it). In this, our debut episode, we talk about who we are, why we are doing this, and the Leaf’s play since AM34’s shoulder decided to take an early holiday. Enjoy!

With the help of some of the best and brightest Shakespeare fans in the world, we’re diving deep into 38 plays in 35 episodes (Henrys IV & VI only get one episode a piece; sorry, Bill). In every episode of The Shakespeare Series, I’ll be joined by a different guest (or guests) to discuss a different play in the canon- from the big picture to the tiniest nerdy detail. We have guests lined up who’ve appeared in title roles on the biggest national stages and others who’ve played messengers in 20-person houses; actors, directors, scholars, and even a stage manager, calling in from Stratford, Manila, Boston, Berlin, New York, Niagara, Newfoundland, Washington DC and, of course, Toronto. Every one of them knows their stuff and every one of them was chosen for exactly one reason- a big, bold, unapologetic love of the bard.

She was just coming off directing a production of Hamlet when I spoke with her for the Shakespeare Series but, since our Hamlet episode was already in the can, Jeannette graciously agreed to chat about another favourite- the enigmatic romance The Winter’s Tale. Don’t Miss: Matthew Edison on Hamlet Lauren Horejda on The Merchant of Venice Jessi McCarthy & Owen Schmitt on Timon of Athens James Graham on King Lear Nicanor Campos on Cymbeline Scott Garland on As You Like It Marcel Stewart on Macbeth Ted Witzel on All’s Well That Ends Well The post The Shakespeare Series: <em>The Winter’s Tale</em> w/ Jeannette Lambermont-Morey appeared first on My Entertainment World.
At the ATX Television Festival, we got the chance to talk to lots of great TV-makers. One of our favourite experiences was with the people who make Genius for National Geographic. The anthology show is wrapping up its Picasso season tonight and the team is about to embark on their third go-round, this time exploring the world of groundbreaking novelist Mary Shelley. For the first of two Live at ATX podcast episodes, we take a behind-the-scenes look at how Genius: Picasso got made and what we can expect from Shelley. In a series of exclusive sit-downs, we got the scoop on the show’s writing process and how a new title genius gets selected from showrunner Ken Biller. Production Designer Arv Greywal, Costume Designer Sonu Mishra, and Makeup Designer Davina Lamont walked us through the creation of the look of the show. And Editor Debby Germino gave us key insight into how it all comes together.

These are crazy times and we’ve all taken on a bunch of new projects as we socially isolate in order to help stop the spread of Covid-19. We’re donating where we can, we’re cleaning the pantry, we’re organizing the 2300+ title dvd library. We’re still working on the Nominee Interview Series even though the live event for our yearly Critics’ Pick Awards had to be cancelled (we’ve still got winners to announce and, eventually, trophies to give out). We started the Corona Movie Club to help curb our boredom and constant need to talk about movies with other human beings. I’m even watching network procedurals and actually writing about them. But what we all really need is comfort. We need our favourite things and our favourite people and right now those are hard to come by so we have to do everything we can to bring them together whenever possible. For me, there’s nothing quite so comforting and joyful as Shakespeare. Luckily, I know a lot of people who also love Shakespeare- a few old friends from my alma mater’s Shakespeare Society and a few of my favourite Toronto theatre artists, all of whom just so happen to be talented and generous and responsibly socially isolated enough to want to join a nearly 3-hour 19-person Zoom call for the purposes of livestreaming Shakespeare on YouTube. We knew we wanted to tackle Twelfth Night in the first batch or readings. It’s a rich and rewarding comedy that’s every bit as substantial as it is fun, marrying deep melancholy and dark themes with lively music, charming romance, and goofy antics. The script features some of Shakespeare’s loveliest poetry and cleverest wordplay from what you could easily argue is his greatest set of characters. A true ensemble piece, Twelfth Night has so many great roles that it demanded our best cast yet. Check out Twelfth Night in audio form below (or on iTunes) then tune into our YouTube page on Saturday and Tuesday nights at 7pm EST to catch our live readings. A huge thank you to the cast of Twelfth Night: Viola- Courtney Ch’ng Lancaster Duke Orsino- James Graham Sir Toby Belch- James Wallis Maria- Christina Bryson Sir Andrew- Laura Hubbard Olivia- Rachel Cairns Malvolio- Nicanor P Campos Antonio- Eli Ham Sebastian- Alex Franks (Act I), Torey Urquhart (Acts 2-5) Feste/Musician- James King Fabian/Musician- Gaby Grice Valentine/First Officer- Torey Urquhart Captain/Servant/Second Officer/Priest- Hilary Wirachowsky Curio- Grace CLICK HERE to subscribe to our podcast on iTunes so you don’t miss an episode.  The post Corona Cold Reads: <em>Twelfth Night</em> appeared first on My Entertainment World.

Our first assignment was Steven Soderbergh’s 2011 thriller Contagion. It was a masochistic choice we deeply regret. Nevertheless, we survived it and our discussion is now available for you to listen to from your own socially distanced bubble. We’ll be back soon with our next movie.

#TeamComicCon (Managing Editor Kelly Bedard, TV Editor Saiya Floyd and Senior Staff Writer Marty Chodorek) chronicle their time at the world’s largest con, recapping daily as they take on Hall H, the con floor and the dreaded press rooms. Kelly attends one final press room as Marty and Saiya walk the exhibition hall floor and, on the final night of SDCC, #TeamComicCon looks back at the week to draw some final conclusions.

Before we announce the winners of the 2016 MyTheatre Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. Daren A. Herbert is a two-time MyTheatre Award winner for his musical work with Acting Up Stage Company (now The Musical Stage Company). He took home 2011’s Outstanding Supporting Actor trophy for his performance in Jason Robert Brown’s Parade (co-produced by Studio 180) and is the reigning Outstanding Performance in a Musical winner for 2015’s The Wild Party (co-produced with Obsidian Theatre Company). This year, however, he’s nominated for an only tangentially musical work, as part of Soulpepper’s Outstanding Ensemble for Father Comes Home From the Wars (Parts I, II, III) by Suzan-Lori Parks, a poetic and challenging contemporary drama inspired by Greek mythology. Daren is one of my favourite people to interview. He’s whip-smart and talks at a rate that reflects that, hence my wanting to release our conversation in podcast form rather than run it past our valiant but not superhuman transcription team. Hilarious, candid, and refreshingly incisive, Daren spent just over an hour a few months back walking me through his experience from wearing blackface in The Wild Party to losing money at Anthony Rapp’s weekly poker nights during the If/Then tour to crying with his Father Comes Home castmates to preparing for his next big role- Onegin in Amiel Gladstone & Veda Hille’s new musical adaptation of Pushkin’s poem of the same name (on stage May 13). Read more about Father Comes Home From the Wars‘ nominated artists: Weyni Mengesha (Outstanding Direction), Dion Johnstone (Outstanding Actor) & Lisa Berry (Outstanding Supporting Actress).

American Football season kicks off tonight with the Chiefs vs. the Patriots. To get you ready for the season, we’ve assembled a great panel of sports enthusiasts; not statisticians and historians but rather just good old fashioned football fans- all of them artists because that’s who we know- to talk about everything from why the Pats are so dominant to the state of the sport in terms of its many controversies to which teams they think will make it to the Superbowl this time around. Like the MLB before it, the NFL gets the full MyEntWorld roundtable experience.

Before we announce the winners of the 2017 MyEntWorld Critics’ Pick Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. When you see upwards of 200 plays a year, it feels like a godsend when a company comes along that you can rely on to always make good theatre. That’s Unit 102 Actor’s Company for me. Since I first tuned into them in early 2015, they haven’t put up a single production that disappointed me (that’s a 9-0 record, which is insane for a small company). When they lost their performance space to a developer in August 2016, Toronto theatre lost out on an entire season of their work. When The Assembly Theatre opened in the fall with Unit 102 as one of their resident companies, Michael Ross Albert’s tense three-hander Miss became the debut production for the new Parkdale space, and the first and only Unit 102 show of 2017. It wasn’t just excited to have them back, it was almost a relief, the strength of Miss proving that they hadn’t lost a single step. The production raked in five nominations, including Outstanding Production, Direction (David Lafontaine, assisted by Adam Belanger), Actress (Nola Martin), Supporting Actor (Wayne Burns) and Set & Costume Design (Adam Belanger and Lindsay Dagger Junkin). To talk about the show, we brought in the whole group (minus Junkin who was busy opening a new show) plus actor Trevor Hayes and playwright Michael Ross Albert to do a podcast interview that reflected the teamwork that went into making the show a success.

Before we announce the winners of the 2019 MyEntWorld Critics’ Pick Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. As a relatively new reviewer, The Doll Play was a personal highlight of my Toronto theatre experience in 2019. Joanne Sarazen’s work is a deep, thoughtful exploration of power, mental health, and harm that also revels in being lively and witty. The script is daring but demanding, requiring a skilled ensemble to render the relationships at the heart of the play properly. Susannah Mackay is nominated for Outstanding Leading Performance for her sterling work as Pig but the other nominations for Outstanding Production and Outstanding Ensemble reflect The Doll Play‘s wide-ranging success on both sides of the curtain.

A Stratford veteran who’s worked all over North America, he won Supporting Actor in the very first year of our theatre awards for his performance in The Tempest and was one of the first major artists I ever interviewed. He was at the top of my list when thinking of people to talk to for the Shakespeare Series and when we were able to work the timing out he happened to be deep in a run as Brutus with Groundling & Crow’s Theatre so he naturally chose Julius Caesar as the play he wanted to discuss.

Before we announce the winners of the 2019 MyEntWorld Critics’ Pick Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. Portia’s Julius Caesar ambitiously explored the inner lives and conflicts of the women who only glancingly appear in Shakespeare’s original. Kaitlyn Riordan’s imaginative feminist text required a large and committed cast, and she got that in the Hart House production, directed by Eva Barrie. All worked dynamically together to deliver the story, and I was lucky enough to get the chance to speak with four of the Outstanding Ensemble-nominated cast about the process of working on the material, and their thoughts on Toronto theatre’s evolution towards more diverse and imaginative storytelling.

I was still in school with barely a dozen reviews under my belt when I found myself standing on an Ossington sidewalk chatting with this monumentally intelligent Germany-obsessed enfant terrible about his original translation of Georg Buchner’s Woyzeck as he chain smoked and panicked about a lost cash box. I was terrified but that interaction was also incredibly formative as Ted Witzel’s work with his company the red light district would become a tentpole of this site’s early coverage (there are five Canadian theatre artists I closely associate with our origin story, Ted is one of them). He doesn’t scare me anymore (well, maybe a little) but Ted remains one of the most fascinating people to talk theatre with, especially Shakespeare because his compulsion to pull everything off its pedestal is what discussions about Shakespeare really need. As a director, Ted likes to take a text other people think of as broken and tear it apart to find something true inside. That’s what he did with the rarely produced and ill-loved comedy All’s Well That Ends Well for Canadian Stage’s 2016 Shakespeare in High Park so that’s the play I assigned him for his Shakespeare Series episode.

He was 16 years old and playing the role of Edgar in a weird hyper-modern smorgasbord of a high school show. More than a decade later, he seemed like the perfect person to discuss both his favourite play and mine. Ever the perfectionist, he had the text on hand for reference and a hundred thoughtful insights ready to answer my nerdily detailed questions about arguably Shakespeare’s most lauded epic and its many possible interpretations.

Last year alone, over 500 scripted television shows aired across networks and streaming. How are you supposed to know what’s worth your time without wasting hours of your life? We help you answer the question of our time: What should I be watching? In each episode of our new podcast series Season One Episode One, co-hosts Allie Shields, Amy Polglase, and Jen Taphorn review the pilot of three new TV shows. Life is too short to watch bad TV, so let us do it for you. In this episode, Jen tries to pull us out of depression with This Way Up (Hulu). Then Amy takes us into suspenseful darkness with The Outsider (HBO) and Allie lets us know Everything’s Gonna Be Okay (Freeform/Hulu).

Luckily, I know a lot of people who also love Shakespeare- a few old friends from my alma mater’s Shakespeare Society and a few of my favourite Toronto theatre artists, all of whom just so happen to be talented and generous and responsibly socially isolated enough to want to join a nearly 3-hour 19-person Zoom call for the purposes of livestreaming Shakespeare on YouTube. We started with As You Like It, purportedly because it has a big ensemble cast and a light, distracting tone but really just because it’s my favourite. I had a ball casting some of my favourite performers in my favourite roles and creating unique pairings of players from across North America who’ve never met one another. Being new to this apocalyptic isolation thing, it took me a few minutes to sort out the technology so the YouTube livestreamed video has about 13 minutes of greetings, logistics, and chatter before we get going on the reading and the audio version available in our podcast feed starts mid-way through Orlando’s opening monologue, but you get the gist. The reading was a blast and planning’s already underway for the next one so check out As You Like It in audio and video form below (or on iTunes or YouTube) then tune into our YouTube page at 7pm on Saturday, March 28th for Two Gentlemen of Verona Live.
