Golden Apple Theatre board member (and Making Love in a Canoe creator/performer) was among those featured in the Toronto Star‘s story “Stratford cabaret: Saturday night’s all right for singing – Talking to five cabaret stars of Stratford Summer Music, celebrating 10 years,” which ran July 22 under the byline of theatre critic Richard Ouzounian.
Golemba has a double function this year. The beaming, boyish blond is both the Master of Ceremonies for all five evenings, but he’ll also be one of the four featured new artists in the July 31 program, “The New Generation of Talent,” joined by Jordan Bell, Lindsay Croxall and Jennifer Rider-Shaw.
“There are definitely many paths as to what cabaret is,” says the enthusiastic Golemba. “For me, it will always mean Sharron Matthews, because seeing her in Sharron’s Party at its height gave me the inspiration and courage to go and do it myself.
“The four of us are all doing different things that we’ve wanted to do. I can only speak for myself, but I’m doing some stuff from my solo show, Making Love in a Canoe, as well as some songs by Nancy White, who has also been a huge influence on my career.”
