A Message from Intermission’s Editors

Message from the Editors, May Antaki and Maija Kappler

When we founded Intermission in the fall of 2015 with our publisher, Philip Riccio, we wanted the site to be a home for discussion and debate, a platform where our theatre community could tell stories that would inspire people to see theatre.

For nearly three years, we poured our hearts into the magazine, but the time has come for us to move on to new projects. It’s a bittersweet feeling. While we’re excited about what’s to come, both for our professional lives and for the evolution of the magazine, it’s sad to think of no longer being part of this community. We’ve loved working with every artist who we’ve collaborated with and it’s been incredible seeing the responses to articles we’ve published.

Intermission’s new team will be announced soon, and the two of us are looking forward to following along with the magazine from the outside—now as lovers of theatre first and foremost.

With gratitude,

May and Maija

  1. Intermission mag is a necessary part of the conversations of Canadian theatre and performance. And you gave us Nappoholics, for which I will be forever grateful.

  2. All the heart and soul you both put into your work is reflected in the product! Though we will miss you, we wish you the best in your future endeavours!
