Musical Musings: 525,600 Minutes with Kevin Wong

#KevintheIntern here, just over a year since I started my tenure as the Metcalf Foundation Intern Artistic Director here at The Musical Stage Company (then Acting Up Stage). Time flies!

Since I’ve started working at the company, I’ve had the opportunity to work on some incredible projects. I thought, to wrap up the end of my internship, I’d finish with some of my most favourite #InternMemories, plus a few ludicrous #InternFails for amusement. More

A Canadian Broadway Snapshot

In anticipation for our 2nd Annual Tony Awards Viewing Party on June 11th, we are thrilled to cheer for a new Canadian musical, Come From Away, which is up for seven awards!

Canadian musical theatre has often been overshadowed by our larger, flashier, more affluent American neighbour. Though we may accredit many of the big name musical hits to USA, Canadian musicals are beginning to make their mark on 42nd street. While many popular Canadian cities are stomping grounds for touring productions and pre-Broadway runs, we have a few original titles that have made a name for Canadians on Broadway.
