Please join Praxis Theatre for the first in its series of original play readings. This month, we are pleased to present Catherine Frid’s Golden Door.

From the author:
Golden Door explores the shift from our group orientation when society is under threat, to our present day demands that as individuals we have the right to do almost anything. And it exposes the dangers at both ends of this arc.

WHAT: Reading of Catherine Frid’s Golden Door
WHEN: Wednesday, December 6 @ 8 pm
WHERE: The Concord Café – 937 Bloor St. West
(Just West of Ossington Station on the south side)

Discussion and refreshments to follow.
For more information, please contact Simon Rice.

We asked:
Who are the two strongest film actors from this list?

You said:
In-depth analysis:
That’s exactly no love for Matt Damon, and very little love for Hoffman’s sparring partner, John C. Reilly. Pacino has a strong showing with six votes for a tidy second-place finish, while vetran heavyweight Jack Nicholson gets a near-snub with a paltry three votes. DiCaprio and Denzel round out the bottom of the pack with a disappointing two and three votes, respectively.

But the long-running Penn-Depp rivalry was at the heart of this vote’s fiercest battle. In the end, Penn managed a humble 4-3 win. (Amid accusations of widespread ballot stuffing and disenfranchized voters in the Depp camp, this can only be described as a hollow Penn victory.) Finally, our beloved Bill Macy stammers his way into a respectable third-place finish.

The winner:
Clearly, everybody loves Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Thanks to all who voted.

Voter turnout is supposed to be low for today’s Municipal Election. Let’s not be among the apathetic and disenfranchised.

Here‘s the link to find your voting station.

Also, Now Magazine has a ward by ward voters’ guide, if you’re looking for some perspective in your riding*.

May the best people win!

The Dora-nominated Fish Eyes is back for an encore, one-night-only performance to raise funds for its December trip to India’s Other Festival.

It’s the story of Meena, an exceptional Indian dancing teenager who would trade it all in just to be a “normal” high school girl. Luckily Kalyani Aunty (her spunky, pro-India dance teacher) is still around to remind Meena of the importance of embracing her origins and her talents through Bollywood absurdity and laughter.

Catch the show that celebrates the joys of heritage and heartaches of youth. Don’t miss this last chance to see what everyone has been talking about!

16 Ryerson Ave (north of Queen St., east of Bathurst St.)
Tickets: $15 (plus applicable service charges)
