Awesome Windsor Star article that tells a lot about the production happening at Phog tonight and again in February.
Windsor Feminist Theatre Presents My Little Butterball at Phog Lounge
WHO: Windsor Feminist Theatre presents My Little Butterball, written by Christian Bédard, composed by Kevin Muir, Directed by Suzanne Turnbull, Musical Direction by Michael Karloff, starring Jasmine St. Rose as Katie Redding, and Raven Mullen as The Stage Manager, and featuring The (other) Band© with Michael Karloff & Michael Palazzolo.
WHAT: Christian Bédard’s My Little Butterball is an original Canadian script and score exploring a young woman’s lifelong battle with self-image and weight issues. This engaging, accessible, and heart-warming comedy was originally written in French in 1986 as a one-woman show, and toured Québec and France extensively, but has had little exposure in English speaking Canada. Since 1986, the relevance of this musical seems only to have increased, as this troubling phenomenon continues to affect more youth, at an even earlier age.
WHERE: An unusal place for a full theatre performace. Phog Lounge (157 University Ave. W.)! An ultra-intimate experience.
