I believe in the power of words to engage, inspire and capture the imagination. And I want you to love Toronto theatre as much as I do.
The blog. Life with more cowbell is an arts/culture blog, shouting out the good word on the Toronto arts scene since 2011. With a focus on local theatre, as well as music, poetry/spoken word, comedy and visual arts, cowbell is a part-time, unpaid, one-person operation. And, yes, the blog’s title was inspired, in part, by the famous SNL sketch.
While the blog site doesn’t have the capacity to do event listings, I’m happy to add Facebook events to life with more cowbell’s Events page.
The blogger. Cowbell’s friendly neighbourhood reviewer/interviewer Cate (aka Cathy) McKim studied visual arts at York University and acting at George Brown Theatre School. By day, she works as an accidental freelance copy editor and writer (words with cowbell) and voice-over artist.
A published short story and creative non-fiction writer, Cate has also contributed theatre and arts posts to Lipstik Indie Reviews, appears (credited as Cathy) in DJ Paul V’s Born This Way Blog and is a featured contributer in a Glamour Magazine piece about the 2012 launch of the book version Born This Way: Real Stories of Growing Up Gay.
Cate lives in Toronto with her cat Camille.
