Theatre Talk is On Stage’s new web series devoted to promoting theatre in Ottawa and designed to help Ottawa get to know the artists making it. New episodes go online every month, comprised of segments that can be watched and shared individually or as a playlist. In addition to talking about upcoming shows, show host Chris Ralph chats with some of the guests in special Table Topic segments that could range from the issues affecting our local theatre scene to whether unicorns are, in fact, better than zombies.
In the very first episode of On Stage’s Theatre Talk, we sit down and chat with some wonderful artists about some wonderful shows opening in Ottawa this May.
Producer’s note: Chris Ralph’s referring to the show as Talking Theatre is my mistake and not his. The name change to Theatre Talk was a last minute decision.
