Kirsten Rasmussen in blink blink at WildSide
Next Stage Festival, also in Toronto, grabs you before you have fully recovered from the post-holiday grogs, and shakes you up. Gay, dance, sketch, outré, it's all here for nearly two weeks. Par-Tay!
Another festival meant to kick you out of the doldrums is Centaur's WildSide in Montreal. It will be an eclectic mix, this year (actually...it always is) with Fringe hits and alternative works the audience at the normally quiet venue never get to see otherwise.
