Episode 36: Summer theatre
Nova Scotia's summer theatre season was a complete wash in 2020, but through multiple waves, lockdowns, reopening phases, and restriction changes, the 2021 season is about to launch. Jesse MacLean stops by the studio to talk about Shakespeare By The Sea's unique programming approach to this summer (plus an update on the Chester Playhouse fire); Ship's Company Theatre's Richie Wilcox discusses the challenges of planning a season out of an indoor space; and Ken Schwartz talks Two Planks and a Passion's truncated/triumphant 30th season. (They all share thoughts on the provincial government's pandemic support for the arts, too.)
Plus a new jam from Hello Delaware!
