More sold-out shows: Swift Current and North Battleford Quite a lot has happened since I wrote last. After Moose Jaw we traveled to Swift Current to perform at the Living Sky Casino. It was a bit of a different set-up there, as it was presented as a dinner and then the show. After that we had a much needed break over the Labour Day weekend, and reunited on September 3 to travel to North Battleford from Regina and perform the show that very same night. Our “Patsy”, Devra Straker, has this...

  Moose Jaw? Excellent! Our Tuesday night show at the Mae Wilson Theatre was another sell-out, and we enjoyed every minute with our fantastic audience. It was our first show on the road after our two weeks in Saskatoon. It presented some technical challenges, being in a new space with some different equipment, but the team is excellent at trouble shooting and the show looked and sounded just beautiful. Some elements of the show are unchanging but most require a fair amount of re-doing...

Greetings from Saskatoon! The cast, band, and crew of A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline are having a fabulous time so far. Saskatoon is our first stop, and we have performed for SOLD OUT audiences every night! The audiences have been incredible and we are into our second week now. Getting the show up and running was quite an experience; we re-staged the show from the Globe Theatre’s “in-the-round” to Saskatoon’s Persephone Theatre stage. A number of our performers had done the show before and it...

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. Indeed, the captivating energy of two pianos resonating throughout the theatre is a key part of this show's distinct appeal. We recently asked Bryce Kulak to reflect on the significance of the music – not only for 2 Pianos 4 Hands, but for the...

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...
