Theatre Calgary is going out on a limb next year and presenting a six-play season that should cost the company a pretty penny. It includes two musicals (Next to Normal, opening the season, and Anne of Green Gables, closing it), a costume drama (Pride and Prejudice), a work virtually written for top actors (God of Carnage), the large-cast seasonal favourite (A Christmas Carol) and a new work with a foreign setting (The Kite Runner).
You may recognize this last for its previous incarnations: a magnificent novel and movie.
TC may be able to save some money in coproductions (Pride is with the NAC, Normal and Kite with Citadel), but you cannot fault the house and artistic director Dennis Garnhum for ambition.
