Originals vs Covers – 1

Originals vs Covers I’m going to jump right in with the minimum of fuss and without a long-winded, read “detailed”, preamble into the the series "Originals vs Covers". But first, I need to back up and tell you a little bit of how this came about, heh heh! There I was, on FB,…

Lunch with Lang – A Celebrity Encounter!

I had lunch with a celebrity. This happened completely by accident.  I've met very few celebrities. I did shake hands with Vijay Amritraj and sat next to Kevin Wright once. ( ** see footnotes below ) Now, Michael Lang may not be your idea of a celebrity and lunch with him isn't strictly accurate either.…

Amazing Journey

Stratford, ON has always been a good trip. My first trip there was in 2009 to see Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest". A lavish production, with lush sets, fantastic costumes and a brilliant set of actors. Probably my favorite Wilde piece brought to life in brilliant fashion. That trip was an…
