Clarke was famous for his three laws.  The most popular “law” is arguably number three, in which he declared that, “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” After watching the fantastic performance of Alice Through the Looking Glass at the National Arts Centre, it […]

Oscar Wilde’s Earnest a perfect pick-me-up

There’s a reason why The Importance of Being Earnest has stood the test of time – it’s freakin’ hilarious and it doesn’t matter if it’s 1895 or 2014.

One-man production of Hamlet fails to impress

There is no doubt in my mind that Raoul Bhaneja is a talented actor.  He’s been performing Hamlet (solo), his one-man version of Shakespeare’s masterpiece, for over a decade. The director, Robert Ross Parker, and Bhaneja are alumni of Canterbury High School, and both have impressive CVs from theatre, television and films.  Bhaneja plays 17 characters – male and […]
