“ the People Sing”; another NACO triumph Reply

Review by Sharon Letovsky

What a spectacular concert!  The National Arts Centre Orchestra, in collaboration with the Ottawa Festival Chorus and the Ewashko Singers celebrated the work of Boublil & Schönberg, creators of the massive Broadway hits, “Les Misérables” and “Miss Saigon.” The program featured hit songs from these as well as from two other of their highly successful shows, “Martin Guerre” and “The Pirate Queen.”

“39 Steps”, hilarious missed clues & mis-cues Reply

Review by Danny Gaisin
                “The 39 steps”…neither an Al-Anon doctrine nor a Jenny Craig™ weight reduction programme. Nope- a 1930’s espionage/spy novel Lord Tweedsmuir, (our 15th Governor General) written under his given name – John Buchan. Protagonist Richard Hannay was a cross between Indiana Jones & James Bond. However, Stage West & director Dayna Tekatch’s incarnation is pure spoof, pure delight, pure entertainment.

I’m now a ‘biker chick’ 1

                For almost a half-century I’ve been married to a teenager… (now a septuagenarian teenager) thus my life has been one of changes and eccentricity. From involvement with the Coast Guard Auxiliary; to deployment with CRC’s Disaster Services, to cautionary observance as my partner discovered motorized two-wheelers
