We have loved getting to know the neighbourhood around Gateway Theatre during breaks from rehearsals for Long Division. As the show opens this week, we wanted to share a few of our favourite spots to eat. Why not make a night out of it and grab dinner before the show?
This time around is a piece about the creative meetings that have been well underway for the upcoming run of Long Division. Artistic Director Richard has been busy with meeting all of the creative team to discuss how they can work together to create a cohesive vision.
