CardRebecca is an innovative artists and a creative entrepreneur.

I Interviewed Rebecca after a performance of her show “Blind Date,” an improvisational show unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. Rebecca is truly a theatre innovator.

Rebecca recently won a Dora Mavor Moore award for her performance in “Blind Date” and her other show, “Legend Has It,” just got nominated for a Betty Michell Award in Calgary in the category of Best Ensemble.
