Rebecca Northan: Improviser, actor, director

Episode 56 - July 14, 2016

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.

Update, Sept. 21:
Rebecca has written, produced and is appearing in a new production “Undercover” at the Tarragon Theatre.
The Toronto Star says “Undercover” trades a first date at a romantic restaurant for a murder mystery at an isolated mansion.” Read Carly Maga’s story here.
