Shakespeare in the Port

Dear Blogger Friends,



I'm happy to announce that I'll be working on HK's first ever outdoor theatre festival dedicated to promoting the work of William Shakespeare! *applause applause*

This would not have been possible without the fabulous support of the amazing people at Cyberport who believed in my dream of an affordable, accessible Shakespeare festival in HK. I've had this idea for about four years in HK and finally someone was nice enough to sit down with me and listen to my concept.

Here's the link to the festival website. http://www.hongkongshakes.com

You can also find us on twitter and facebook.

We are currently accepting submissions from local HK artists for the festival. Please email me at meaghan@hongkongshakes.com to receive a packet.

And the Nominees Are...

The public has voted and chosen the best of the best for the 2012-2013 season! Don't shoot the messenger. Each category has 5 nominees based on the highest number of votes.The nominees appear on the ballot in random order.

We had a tie in the Directing category, so we have 6 nominees in this category.

For acting awards where nominees were nominated for multiple shows, they were nominated for the show with the most votes.

Show names have been removed from the Stage Management category as many of the nominees have worked and been nominated for 3 or more productions they have worked on in the past year and we thought it easier to simply list their names.
To get access to the ballot to vote you need to enter your email into the box on the original post about the awards. It will sent to your email address to assure that the vote is fair.

#HKproblems_theplay




#HKproblems_theplay
May 5th, 8pm
Doors open at 7:30
Tickets are 200HKD (Discount for groups of 6+)
18+ Adult content.

I have the second run of my original play #HKproblems_theplay happening next Sunday at Grappa's. I would really love it if some of my blogger buddies came and showed their support to the local art scene. I'm paying the actors and the crew, so every ticket counts!

Grappa's Cellar is pretty big and can hold up to 200 people so no need to worry about selling out. Come out and see us! If you want to call in advance and book a nice table right in front you can call 2521-2322 


Here's the press release for the show. We basically were fans of the #hkproblems twitter feed and thought this is fabulous material for a show, someone should do one. Then we thought on it some more... Why can't we write a show about it? 2 weeks later we had a script. In 2 months we had the play rehearsed and we produced our world premiere at Beating Heart. Craig was super supportive of us and I was very grateful to him to giving our dog and pony show a home.

We had reviews come out for the show. See one here.

We had people love us. We had people hate us. Some people called our show, "An Abomination." Others called it,"the best show I've ever seen in Hong Kong".

For the second run we're going to make it bigger and better. We're filming a new youtube segment. We were surprised and shocked to find our video from the first production just recently had 6,000 hits on youtube. 


I hope to see you all there. I promise it'll be better than the inflatable dog shit statue at the WKAD.

Find out even more about the show and the people working on it at our official website!

Taboo 2.0

Despite the fact that I gave Taboo a C last year when I reviewed it City of Dreams was kind enough to personally invite me back for a press trip to see the new and improved version!


Here's a link to the new review.
It's definitely improved for the better.
