The Royal Alex at 100


This Sunday we marked the 100th anniversary of the Royal Alexandra Theatre with a street party, an open house and all kinds of fun stuff. It was such a great day. I was so glad my sisters got to hang out and that the Robeau played piano for the VIP reception.

I photographed some of the great people I work with, some notable Canadians like Shirley Douglas (yes, she's Keifer's mom), ballet legend Veronica Tennant, comedian Sandra Shamas, the Police Cheif and my new boyfriend, The Right Honourable Lincoln Alexander. I've had a crush on him forever (I know, I know) and I got to have a wonderful chat with him on Sunday. It was one of those great moments that make my job so surreal.

I was really proud on Sunday. I was a proud Torontonian, theatre lover and Mirvish Employee.

Here's to another 100 years for the grand lady on King Street!


  1. Oh, I want to visit Toronto so badly someday!! I too would be proud to live there. Hooray for the Grand Lady.

  2. Did you know that the Toronto Police Service Mounted Unit has a horse named Lincoln, in honour of the great man you esteem?

  3. Beautiful photos! They make me want to zip on up there and join you.

  4. beautiful theatre. I like the portrait of the older man in the grey suit. Very cool.

    Oh! cried Miss Van Kamp, and Ralph Ellsworth flew to the rescue.. She took a step, swayed slightly, dropped the leaves, and clutched out her hand to him.. Leonard's, hoping to be yet in time to pass half an hour there; though it was now near twelve o'clock and summer parties never continue to a very late hour.. But magicians sometimes suffer severely from the malice with which they have themselves inspired their familiars.. After this he went to several Commencements for me, and ate the dinners provided; he sat through three of our Quarterly Conventions for me--always voting judiciously, by the simple rule mentioned above, of siding with the minority.. I lack the necessary material to sustain these explanations from observation.. Gid ap! he cried, and the horses sprang forward with a lurch.. Wherever there is an italic, the hickory descended.. His further associations showed that he had established an analogy between this relation between his parents and his own relation toward his younger brother.. Both originate in the infantile life and result from the transformation which our psychic and somatic organism has undergone since the infantile period.. Horner, honest and true himself, and much smitten with the fair Ellen, was too happy to be circumspect.. This was the means used by one who was troubled by a painful perineal abscess.. The dream of walking through a row of rooms is a brothel or harem dream.. I am at present unable to prove that the state of affairs is really different, but I am strongly inclined to assume a more stringent determination of the dream-wish.. William! he screamed, he is running away with us; we shall be dashed to pieces! Can't you get forward and cast off that line? What do you mean? cried Podington, as the boom gave a great jerk as if it would break its fastenings and drag him overboard.. Of course, the mater is furious, but I rather look on it as a lark.. Putnam's Sons, 1918). His grandfather was a seize-Hessian-ist in the Revolutionary War.. Watkinson, but not very wise.. Here a closed wagon is waiting, a gentleman steps up to me, gives his authority as an agent of the police, and demands that I should follow him...
