Kate Ryan, director of Plain Jane Theatre Company, talks about the company's upcoming musical revue and 10-year anniversary celebration, Get Happy! The Plain Janes formed a decade ago with the mission to dust off and present lesser-known musicals, the hidden gems of the canon that had been mostly forgotten.
Mel also talks about skin colour and theatre reviews, the transactional nature of media comps, and gives a mini review of Catalyst Theatre's The Invisible.
