Can I Have A Word?
Thursday September 10th, 2020 with Bob LeDrew
"Behind the Beyond" ZOOMs into Ottawa theatre lovers' homes via Youtube, with guests Brian Cano and Mike Thompson

Like most other art forms, theatre has ground to a halt with the restrictions COVID-19 has brought into existence. But you can't keep theatre people cooped up and not expect creativity to come to the fore. Director Brian Cano and technical director Mike Thompson join me to talk about adapting Stephen Leacock's satirical essay "Behind the Beyond" first for the stage, and then for Youtube with the performances captured via Zoom. The play premieres September 15 at 6, and you can learn more at:
