Theatre Reviewer

Laura is a rare Ottawa native who clearly took her summer job at the tourism information centre a little too much to heart wanting to prove to all that Ottawa isn't boring. Laura loves to check out the latest musicals and plays with her Apt613 collaborator and BFF (Broadway Friend Forever), Samara Caplan, whom she met when they worked together as non-profit unicorns.

Gauthier and Caplan: “Civilized is a powerful and impactful show, but sitting through this production is not easy; it feels tense, uncomfortable, and oftentimes horrifying. But these are the ways art changes us, by challenging us to sit in our discomfort and listen to the stories and the history that needs to be told.”
