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.
Forgive me for being sentimental, but it’s the holiday season- there’s no better time for a little indulgence! For me, the theatre and the holidays are inextricably linked. Christmas 1991 was really where it all started. Under the tree tickets to The Phantom of the Opera were waiting for me. Turns out it was much more than just an evening’s entertainment. It was the start of a series of experiences that have shaped my life. A source of magic and wonder that still manages to surprise and delight me.
