for non-theatre people...It’s a play about life.
by Christian Baines
A Canadian original about the power of theatre to change a life, Michel Nadeau’s And Slowly Beauty... opens this week at Tarragon Theatre. We caught up with Director Michael Shamata ahead of the show’s Toronto debut.
CHARPO: So, tell us a little bit about And Slowly Beauty... How would you describe the show?
I think anybody who has seen The Three Sisters will have a slightly different experience of the play, but it’s certainly not about The Three Sisters.
CHARPO: What drew you to the show in particular?
CHARPO: The work is described very much as a love letter to art. How do you go about reaching those ‘Mr Mann’s' in your audience, particularly in a work like this that’s so focused on how theatre, as an art form, touches people?
