Traditional arts journalism is in decline. Now more than ever, this independent website and our podcast fill a growing void. We've had over 1.5 million page views, and are grateful that you are here. We rely on readers — and a handful of advertisers who share our values — to make our work possible. When we raised funds for our podcast, The "Performers Podcast," the average donation from people like you was $96. Now we hope you’ll join us in augmenting our coverage of arts in the region by making a one-time donation today.

Sisters doing it for, and to, themselves

“There have been other productions of Three Sisters that I’ve hugely admired, but none that has involved me as deeply with the characters as this one. It’s one of the great evenings in the Canadian theatre. And I expect it will get richer.”

Profound drama

“What makes Three Sisters so profound is Chekhov’s tender, yet unflinching, portrait of palpably unhappy lives that hunger for meaning and purpose without repast.”
