Shaw Festival documentary premieres tonight on PBS

The Shaw Festival: Behind the Curtain is a one-hour documentary that takes viewers backstage at one of North America’s leading theatre companies during their 2012 season. Much of the program focuses the Shaw’s production of Come Back, Little Sheba, for which I wrote original music. Although very little of my music can be heard in the film, it’s a fascinating trip through planning, rehearsals and production of a play that was very dear to all of us who worked on it. The ¬†Shaw Festival: Behind the Curtain premieres on July 19th at 9 p.m. on PBS (check your local listings for the exact schedule as well as repeat broadcasts).
