Tumultuous Tuesday & The Happy Woman

Some late school nights for me this week, chickens – all for very good reasons, I assure you: music and theatre.

Tonight is Tumultuous Tuesday at Graffiti’s in Kensington Market (170 Baldwin Street, Toronto), and the line-up features the lovely and talented Kat Leonard. Added bonus: I’ll also get to spend the evening there with our pal Lizzie Violet. Which means girlfriends night! And I actually remembered to bring my camera this time!

Nightwood Theatre’s production of Rose Cullis’s play The Happy Woman (directed by Kelly Thornton) started previews at the Berkeley Street Theatre Downstairs last night and officially opens tomorrow night – and I’m very happy to say that I’ll be there! The Happy Woman features an amazing cast: Maev Beaty, Ingrid Rae Doucet, Barbara Gordon, Martin Happer and Maria Vacratsis.

  1. I saw “The Happy Woman” preview on March 5. A few almost imperceptible line glitches, but overall a strong show. It seemed to be more about the children of the “happy woman”, though. Maev Beaty as the troubled daughter Cassie was so totally different from the last time I saw her – in “The Penelopiad”, playing multiple roles including Odysseus’ senile father Laertes! Fascinated by Cassie’s volatile relationship with her brother (Martin Happer), who’s desperately trying to hold his life together in the wake of his pregnant wife’s unfounded terrors. Maria Vacratsis, who I remember from the TV show “Rent-a-Goalie”, was perfect as the cynical, tell-it-like-it-is neighbour.
