Thomsen Talk: “They made a musical of that?”

When I tell people that my next project is directing a musical of Little House on the Prairie, a frequent response is “They made a musical of that?” In a way, it shouldn’t be too surprising; after all, there’s a musical version of practically everything these days: The Addams Family, SpongeBob SquarePants, Grumpy Old Men….. … Continued

BLOGGING WITH BRENDAN: Off-Stage Stages: “Site-Specific Theatre”

Where does theatre happen? Your first response would probably be: “on stage.” If you’re familiar with QCT’s spaces, you might get a little more specific: “in a proscenium theater” (such as the Barbara Rowell Auditorium), “in a black box” (like the Lab), “in the round,” etc. You’re right, of course– but if you think about … Continued

Once a year I make the pilgrimage to the mecca of theatre, Broadway, in New York City, a magical place where the lights are brighter and spontaneous singing and dancing down the sidewalk is not uncommon. My last visit was in November 2019, and I had plans to return Summer 2020, but “you know what” … Continued
