  1. ROBOTS! oh wait, did that already…

    anyone want to take on what canstage not producing any new plays next year, equity showcase disappearing in the blink of an eye, and luminato getting 15 mIllion dollars from the ontario gov’t yesterday means for theatre in the t dot?

  2. To be fair, I don’t think anyone ACTUALLY talked about robots. I wasn’t kidding, you know. Robots. Bring it.

    Seriously, though, any of the things that Mike said are cool. And if you could do it in limerick form, all the better.

  3. A limerick is a five-line poem with a strict form, originally popularized in English by Edward Lear. Limericks are frequently witty or humorous, and sometimes obscene with humorous intent.
    The following example of a limerick is of anonymous origin.

    The limerick packs laughs anatomical
    Into space that is quite economical,
    But the good ones I’ve seen
    So seldom are clean,
    And the clean ones so seldom are comical.

  4. equity showcase ran a huge deficit
    while canstage new plays marty chose to quit
    indie artists are fucked
    liberal friends in luck
    15 mill – yankee AD – for your budget

  5. OK – back to Robots.

    The New York-based playwright Mac Rogers did a well-reviewed play last year called “Universal Robots” (and talked about it here). Might this quench your thirst for Robot-theatre Alison?

    Mike . . . I’d love to jump in with my 10 cents about your topics. Unfortunately I don’t have enough info about these items to protect myself from sounding like an idiot if I write about them here.

    As for you limerick throwdown:

    There once was a town in Ontario,
    whose theatre scene some said was terrible.
    But I don’t agree, and sometimes, you see,
    a cynic will always be cynical.

    I don’t know . . . it’s Thursday. Gimme a break!

  6. Robot theatre! That’s so rad! I didn’t know about that play, thank you for teaching me something new on a Thursday afternoon, Ian.

    However, I am still waiting for a limerick about robots…

  7. When Czech playwright Capek said “robot”
    The whole wide world stopped and said “why not?”
    Now robots are here,
    They can even pour beer,
    (Maybe not, but come on, robots! Why not?)
