Wow! The response from our first issue of Meanwhile sent last week has been staggering. We received over 3,300 responses to our Marquee Contest and had dozens of meaningful theatre stories shared with us.
This week, we invite you to participate in a 5-day theatre trivia challenge, we share our first winner from our Marquee Contest as well as the selected story from our Patron's Corner! There's links to experience free theatre, a fantastic story about the Ghost Light at the Royal Alexandra Theatre, plus a new song written by Ron Jacobson, the General Manager of the Mirvish Theatres!
We regard all of you as part of our theatre family. While our theatres are closed we have decided to start publishing a weekly e-magazine about theatre-going, the performing arts and all its offshoots.
This is the first issue, and we hope to be sending you a new one every Tuesday.
I’ve received a question from Geoff:
“What criteria does Mirvish Productions use in choosing shows for its Main and Off-Mirvish subscriber seasons? Is there a committee or is it more a case of choosing what is the best of what's touring and available?”
Theatre is an awe-inspiring, communal experience. Something about sharing the experience with an audience full of people heightens the pleasure, increases the importance, validates our feelings, makes the catharsis more… cathartic!

So, globally, 2020 is off to a rough start. There’s already been so much fear and heartbreak for a year that is less than a week old. I’m going to leave all that at the door and focus on the positive, because theatrically 2020 is shaping up to be pretty incredible.
As the decade is winding down it is the perfect time to take a look at some of the best moments of the last ten years. Researching this list has taken me down many a rabbit hole! I hope you fall into some of the same ones, they are pretty delightful. You’re welcome.
