Rebecca Northan: Improviser, actor, director

Card

Rebecca is an innovative artists and a creative entrepreneur.

I interviewed Rebecca in July, 2016 after a performance of her show “Blind Date,” an improvisational performance 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,” was nominated for a Betty Michell Award in Calgary in the category of Best Ensemble.

We talk about how Rebecca’s 10 minute theatre experiment turned into a full-length show that played off-Broadway and London’s West End.

Her Spontaneous Theatre’s production of “An Undiscovered Shakespeare” is on stage at The Grand Theatre in London from Oct. 11 – 13. I saw a production at The Stratford Festival and highly recommend it!
