Brian's last night at the Ralph Thornton Centre. He's been here with Toronto Playback Theatre since it began 5 years ago.

The conductor of the theatre holds a conversation with the audience, and brings out stories that need to be told. Without discussion or rehearsal of any kind, creative and talented actors enact the experiences and stories that have been shared. They are right on the edge of the unknown, and they find their way, time after time.

The next regular performance of toronto playback theatre will be Saturday, April 5, 2008, Stories of Creatures Great and Small. There will also be a performance following a play on March 19. See the playback website for all the details.


as for me, I've posted a lot in the past few days, and will probably have to take a break for other efforts this week, so please go back and take a look at the dance photos from earlier this week.

????? Very good set, with wondeful faces and emotions. Do you wanted it to be so noisy, or the lights where not so good?

moonunit80 Wow, I wish I could have been there. I googled playback theatre to see if I could find a place here in Atlanta, but no luck.
