    Three pals explore their relationship once the gloves are off discussing art

    The question of what is art may be a personal one, but it takes on a whole new meaning when friendship’s involved. That’s the premise of The Grand Theatre’s production of Art, the Tony-winning play by Yasmina Reza, directed by Nigel Shawn Williams now on in preview, opening Friday and continuing until March 11. The show features actors E.B. Smith, who starred as Martin Luther King Jr. in last season’s hit, The Mountaintop, in the role of Yvan, Sam Kalilieh, as Serge and Michael Spencer-Davis as Marc. It tells the story of three friends who begin exploring the meaning of their friendship after Serge buys a very expensive piece of art that appears to be nothing more than a white canvas. “What drew me to Art most was that line between art and friendship and how we communicate as…

    Time to stand tall and see who is the best geek of all

    Do you know the difference between Wade Wilson and Slade Wilson? Are you aware there is both a Wonder Man and a Wonder Woman?

It’s all the brainchild of Steve Duncan, who will serve as quizmaster for the evening.

    Londoner Don Jones, who managed tours for the late Stuart McLean, recalls the storyteller’s artful skills

    It began with a handshake on a plane about an hour outside Thunder Bay. There was no written contract between Don Jones and Stuart McLean, just that handshake confirming that Jones would be McLean’s tour manager. “We never did sign a contract. In fact, it was never discussed again. That was 17 years ago,” said Jones Thursday, his voice choked with emotion a day after McLean, host of The Vinyl Cafe, died after more than a year battling melanoma. He was 68. McLean stayed with Jones and watched the audiences at his Vinyl Cafe grow from a few hundred to more than 4,300 at his second-last show in November, 2015. A few weeks later, McLean announced he had to take a break to fight the cancer in his body. “He came off stage and he was so excited, he said ‘What a thrill just to be able…
