Rebecca Northan: Improviser, actor, director

Episode 56 - July 14, 2016


Rebecca is an innovative artists and a creative entrepreneur.

I interviewed Rebecca 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.

Blind Date is on stage at the Tarragon Theatre until June 25.
