As the smash hit 2 Pianos 4 Hands nears the end of its run, audience members continue to rave – not only about the show's many laugh-out-loud moments, but also the exquisite piano work of co-stars Reza Jacobs and Bryce Kulak.

Bryce Kulak says attendees don’t need to know anything about 2 Pianos 4 Hands in advance to appreciate the show, on at Regina’s Globe Theatre. “You can come to the show cold and that’s actually my favourite way to see theatre, is to not know much at all about the production. That’s a great way to see the show,” said Kulak, who along with Reza Jacobs, stars in the special event production on the Globe main stage this month. Read More...

That was the beginning of my fascination for the story and love of the music of Man of La Mancha. I am so happy to be back at Globe Theatre designing this show. The artistic challenges create a new way of looking for solutions to this world, which is set in a dank prison during the Spanish Inquisition. We do not know how long some of...

When working in the round, the floor leads the way. For the prison cell in Man of La Mancha, the floor and all of the prop elements need to look primitive, distressed, and rustic. Every piece on the stage needs to lend itself to the transformative nature of the storytelling in the script, with elements suddenly becoming useful tools in the storytelling. I’ve always been interested in the idea of scenic design and its elements as “sculpture.” The prison cell walls tell their story of...
