Interview with Elaine Ávila in Stir

Fado: The Saddest Music in the World, the musical play written by Elaine Ávila, is being remounted as a co-production between Firehall Arts Centre and Peunte Theatre from January 14 to February 5. In Stir, Gail Johnson interviews Ávila and writes about why this is the perfect time for a new run of Fado: The Saddest Music in the World.

From the article: “‘…people, particularly right now, might want to come together and cry; we haven’t really done that [post-pandemic]. We kind of pretended we got over it and just got on with things. I’ve noticed that I am so excited—maybe even more excited about any production, ever, because I’m so excited to be going out and meeting people because of the play. It feels really special.’”
