Kardashians to review Three Sisters?

Olga, Masha and Irina must work, work, work, or they will never get to Moscow

by Michael Wheeler

Last week The Toronto Star pushed the boundaries of contemporary criticism when they sent two neophytes to review the heavily anticipated musical Billy Elliot in Toronto. The sole qualification they possessed as critics?

They were both human beings that shared their name coincidentally with that of the production . (They both had two “t”s in their name and the show only has one “t”, but whatever.)

Inspired by this bold choice to gain insight into and communicate the merit of the performing arts, Praxis Theatre  announces that effective immediately, we will  be abandoning our no-review policy for the website if any of the following people can be found to review the following shows:

  • An Anne Frank to review The Diary of Anne Frank.
  • Drew Barrymore to review Barrymore.
  • A busload of 12-year-old males from Newark to review Jersey Boys.
  • Spiderman to review Spiderman.
  • Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian to review Three Sisters.
  • Nikki Yanofsky to review Torch Song Trilogy.
  • Jesus Christ to review Jesus Chrysler.

Pushing the envelope, but worth considering:

  • Tony Nardi to review The Misanthrope.
  • Prince William for Kiss Me, Kate.
  • Sirhan Sirhan to review Assassins.
  • Kevin Bacon to review Six Degrees of Separation.

Please get in touch through the info@ address above if you are interested in writing a review for our website and you are one of the people listed above.

If you have any similarly themes suggestions please feel free to leave them in the comments!

    I really wanted Thomas Ryder Payne to review Thom Payne while it was playing in The Tarragon Extra Space, but he was too busy designing whatever we were doing in the Mainspace at the time.

    A Streetcar Named Desire – David Miller
    How I Learned to Drive – Rob Ford

    Kevin Bacon is priceless. nice connect.

    but to the issue…this reminds me of the recent huffing surrounding the Huffington post where journalists submit on a voluntary basis, and articles are selected presumably the merit of the article. No one needs a background in journalism/politics/criticism. Just to write.
    But this is all part in parcel of CRTC’s recent decision to go lax on accountability in the press core. Now everyone has a blank cheque to print fiction and call it news.

    I almost spilled hot tea all over myself when I read the title of this blog post…Well-played, Wheeler!

  4. Donald Trump to review Hair?
    The cast of Jersey Shore to review Grease?
    Aretha Franklin and Kirstie Alley to review They Might Be Giants? And finally, my kitties, Captain Meowsers and Bella Swan to review Cats.

  5. Thanks for all these great comments.

    @Henry – I’m glad you brought up the Huff-Po controversy as I wanted to find away to link to this conversation on CBC’s Q about it some way. It’s an interesting debate. There are upsides and downsides to the fact that millions of us can now self-publish and broadcast.

    Oh I thought of one:

    Chris Bosh to review The Imaginary Invalid.

    I have to say, the Tony Nardi suggestion is genius.
