Love, Loss and What I Wore – Tickets Giveaway

Maria aka amotherworld at Love Loss and What I Wore

Love, Loss and What I Wore enjoyed its Canadian Premiere in Toronto this July.

A collection of intimate stories by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron, the show uses clothing and accessories and the memories they trigger to tell stories all women can relate to. 

The Toronto production I had the pleasure of attending had an amazing cast: Andrea Martin, Mary Walsh, Louise Pitre, Sharron Matthews and Paula Brancati.

I wasn’t sure what to expect and was surprised by the evening presented as a staged reading, with the  five talented actresses lined up on stage.  They sat with scripts on stands while sharing a few dozen vignettes.
The entire quintet were lovely but of course for me, the wonderful Andrea Martin made me laugh out loud.  As did Mary Walsh who blew me away with one of her climactic monologues.
A light and fun show with inside jokes that only a woman would understand, this is the type of evening you’d want to spend with your mom or girlfriends.

Rock of Ages Rocks!

By Maria Lianos

Don’t Stop Believin’!

That’s what Elicia MacKenzie and Yvan Pedneault probably thought when they scored the leads as Maria in The Sound of Music and Galileo in We Will Rock You.   

Now they play star-crossed lovers Sherrie and Drew in the Toronto production of Broadway hit Rock of Ages, which had its premiere last night at the Royal Alexandra theatre.

In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small town girl meets a big city rocker and in LA’s most famous rock club, they fall in love to the greatest songs of the 80s.  Rock of Ages is a musical comedy and a love story told through the most memorable hits of Journey, Whitesnake, Twisted Sister and many more.

A truly wonderful and talented cast includes Peter Deiwick as the sexy and glam rocker Stacee Jaxx, and Aaron Walpole as Lonny, the hilarious narrator and scene-stealer.  Pedneault’s voice is incredible, a true Canadian talent.

If you loved 80s rock, you will be singing along throughout the entire show.  Even if you weren’t a huge 80s rock fan, you’ll still be entertained by the powerful ballads and rockin’ tunes.  You’ll also be laughing out loud at the clever dialogue.

This is the type of musical that you can bring your boyfriend or husband to see. Why you ask?  Not only will they rock alongside you, they will also be delighted by the attractive female cast who pranced around the stage in garters and fishnet stockings.

The best part – drinking beer during the show and holding up the LED lighters I bought at the theatre (two for a buck).  You’ll need them for powerful ballads like Warrant’s “Heaven” and Journey’s “Oh Sherry”.

Bust out the acid-washed tight jeans and tease out your hair because you will rock the night away!
