What is the Book of Judith?

The Book of Judith, created by Michael Rubenfeld and Sarah Garton Stanley, is a musical play about a self-annointed preacher man who is passionately driven to change the lives of others. After a chance meeting with a quadriplegic woman named Judith Snow, theatre artist Matthew Goldberg believes he has “seen the light”. With the help of his director, Shauna Coupland, and her best friend, disabled artist, Pippa McLaren, Matthew has managed to coral a fully integrated group of choristers with and without disability, to help him tell, for the first time, his inspirational, maniacal and deeply suspect tale of Judith Snow. The Book of Judith takes us from innocence to ignorance and through to the other side – a truer place of transformation.

The Book of Judith stars Michael Rubenfeld and features Sarah Garton Stanley, Judith Snow and a revolving cast comprised of local members of the community the work is performed in. It is directed by Sarah Garton Stanley.

We started rehearsals on Monday. Putting finishing touches on the script and yesterday Andrew brought in the final song and holy crap oh my god yes please thank-you very much!

If you are walking down the street at Queen and Ossington near CAMH starting SUNDAY, you may notice a little thing called:

A TENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(note: this is not our tent. but this IS a tent!)

Yes. Our tent is being PITCHED this SUNDAY right on QUEEN STREET. The mere thought of it takes my breath away.

I am going to take same video tonight in rehearsal and post it for you all.

And keep a look out for coverage of the play in NOW, EYE, and the GLOBE and more.

In the meantime, I will simply include this very handsome photograph of our very handsome (AND TALENTED) composer: ANDREW PENNER, whose album, WAVE NORTH (SUNPARLOUR PLAYERS) comes out on the same day that Book of Judith OPENS!!! MAY 19th. I've heard this album, oh, let's say, about 20 times already, and it just may be the ALBUM OF THE YEAR. What a blessing it has been to have Andrew work on this with us. And you will also get to see him perform for some of the shows!!!!!!!!!!!
