In light of Vancouver’s housing crisis, local architectural firm Haeccity Studio Architecture has transformed a 1950s bungalow in the city’s West End neighborhood into Comox Infill, a contemporary multi-family development with six dedicated rental units. Described by the firm as the “missing” piece from Vancouver’s urban fabric, this small-scale multi-family project is a case study for much-needed densification that doesn’t compromise on livability. Sandwiched between two heritage properties, t...

Why Getting Diversity In Theatre Is Complicated

Surveying the acres of white faces (and mostly greying or balding heads) in the West End, it is hardly surprising that theatres have traditionally deliberately catered to them. But what happens if you put on a show that doesn’t only speak to them? You might get a different sort of audience.

Marin Mazzie, Beloved Broadway Star, Dead At 57

“Mazzie’s broad career went from screwball comedy — in Kiss Me, Kate and Monty Python’s Spamalot on Broadway and the West End — to riveting, dysfunctional moms in Next to Normal and Carrie. She earned other Broadway roles in Man of La Mancha, Bullets Over Broadway, Enron and Into the Woods.” She was nominated for a Tony Award three times, for Kiss Me, Kate, Ragtime, and Passion.

Exit Lines: Harry Potter on Broadway

The Lyric, former home to Broadway’s most expensive musical (the infamous Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), now houses Broadway’s most expensive play. But Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, all two parts and six-ish hours of it, should be there for a more extended stay. My nine-year-old daughter and I recently made a day of it, and it lived up to its advanced billing, captivating even this Muggle-ish critic. I haven’t really done the work with Harry Potter. Oh, I’ve seen all the movies (a chore af...

With Theatre Reviews Getting Cut Everywhere, How Will New Talent Get Discovered?

Lyn Gardner: "When reviewing space gets tight it is not the shiny, starry mainstream shows in the West End or at the National or the Royal Shakespeare Company that get cut, but the new, the unknown and the innovative."
