Survivor: Stratford, Ontario.

When three become one - Marti Maraden and Don Shipley resign, leaving Des McAnuff the last artistic director standing at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. Anyone know what's going on behind the scenes?

(Do feel free to email me.)

UPDATE: OK, yes - Survivor, Spice Girls... I do need to update my pop culture references.

Des McAnuff's Wikipedia page makes no mention of the Statford Festival. What's up with that?

Richard Ouzounian's innuendo-filled column today doesn't quite ring true, with its Julius Caesar analogy. Brutus and Cassius did not ride out of Rome, leaving Caesar in charge.

Also, I must notice the essence of Mr McAnuff's comments: ie. he is capable of working in 3 countries at once, these are "traumatic" events that will "change my life", etc. What he NEEDS to say is that he believes passionately in Canadian artists, and in Canadian Theatre and in the Stratford Festival. THAT was what needed to be said this week. Why didn't he say it?
