James Judd at Soulo in Toronto

This weekend, James Judd presented a series of one-person shows organized by Tracey Erin Smith at Soulo Theatre, his Mid-Career Retrospective as a sort of kick off for his upcoming tour in those United States I was a little busy this weekend performing elsewhere and pretending to be Leonardo DiCaprio in The Great Gatsby (long story!) but I did manage to catch one fabulous and hilarious show Friday night and his storytelling workshop on Sunday afternoon. I now have things to read and stuff to work on.

The workshop was inspiring and informative. The more I do this, the more I realize that the shows I do are a strange hybrid somewhere between solo theatre and a Backstreet Boys concert.

And the shows, by all accounts were wonderfully well received. The social medias are atwitter.

A Weekend of Storytelling

This weekend, Soulo Theatre (where I serve on staff in the ill-defined role of Interim Sanity Consultant) is presenting the Mid-Career Retrospective of storyteller James Judd. James was a performer and panelist at the 2015 Soulo Theatre Festival earlier this year where he presented his one-person-show Killer Quack. This weekend he's presenting three nights of shows - Friday, Saturday & Sunday - at the Red Sandcastle Theatre (922 Queen Street East, Toronto) tickets to the extravaganza are available at www.soulo.ca/judd. There are discounts for purchasing tickets to more than one event.

On top of that, there's a special story telling workshop on Sunday afternoon, also at the Red Sandcastle. Having sat through his show in the spring riveted, I can recommend both whole heartedly. Hope to see you there!

I wear many hats.* *That's a metaphor. I never wear real hats, they mess up my hair

One such hat is as the general manager for the SOULO Theatre Festival which presents a weekend of exceptional one-person shows and a series of seminars and panel discussions teaching actors how to present their own material. From behind the scenes it's an exhausting four days, but also a very uplifting, inspiring and entertaining four days.
