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 Talk segments that could range from the issues affecting our local theatre scene to whether unicorns are, in fact, better than zombies.
This is the second episode in this pilot season for the show. We hope you enjoy some great interviews and great performances!
