Following hit runs in the falls of 2014 & 2015, The Curator returns to the Bad Dog stage as a monthly show. Each show is inspired by a different piece of art, chosen and introduced by that month's curator. The curator has five minutes to set the stage for our award-winning cast members, who then take over to create a completely improvised one-act comedy inspired by that work of art.
The Curator is the brainchild of Haligonian improviser Henri Geilis, lovingly adapted by the Bad Dog Theatre Company and featuring a rotating cast including the extraordinary talents of Sean Tabares, Ashley Comeau, James Gangl, Colin Munch, Anders Yates, Dan Beirne, Kris Siddiqi, Craig Anderson, Lucy Hill, Daniel Maslany, Ify Chiwetelu, Hannah Spear, Tess Degenstein & more. Directed by Bad Dog’s Artistic Director Julie Dumais Osborne.

AUGUST 27 - Bridget Cann
CHEESE PLEASE: The Art of Cheese
Since before history was written down, cheese has been the epicenter of human ingenuity and the culinary arts. It all began with our ancestors taking a chance on some curdled milk in a sheep's stomach. Prepare for a gouda time, as the cast of the Curdrator munsters up the laughs, dispels the blues, and bries through the comedy. (The puns stop here.)
Bridget Cann is a performer currently residing in Toronto. She has studied comedy and improv in Calgary, Montreal and Toronto. She also worked in a cheese shop where she served Donald Sutherland cheese. You can find her performing throughout Toronto especially at Bad Dog Theatre, The John Candy Box, Comedy Bar and Social Capital. Don't ask her what her favourite cheese is, they are all her children.
The August cast of The Curator includes: Ify Chiwetelu (YAS KWEEN), Sarah Hillier (Second City), Dan Beirne (Fargo - FX), Kevin Vidal (Sunnyside - CTV) & James Gangl (Searching for Cruise Control).
