To all of our readers,

While 2016 had a lot of lows, it also had a pretty high high for us: launching Intermission. And it’s been a wild ride since day 1. We’ve loved every minute and are excited about what’s to come, but it turns out running a magazine is a lot of work! So, we’re taking a short holiday break to rest, recharge, and, of course, to plan all sorts of excellent content for 2017.

Before we go, we wanted to share another highlight of the year: having a song written about us. For our launch party, actor/writer Jesse LaVercombe penned a song about Intermission and performed it with the band Dress Black. It is, without a doubt, the catchiest song about an online theatre magazine ever written. Take a break from Christmas music and listen here!

If you’re looking for reading material over the break, check out our most popular articles, or dive into our archives for spotlights, artist perspectives, videos, and more.

Happy holidays and see you back here on January 10,

Philip, May, and Maija

Jesse grew up in Minneapolis but has lived in Canada since he was eighteen, except for a few months when he lived in New Orleans, and for most of 2014 when he lived on a 98 ft. tallship while touring an electric-rock opera/circus, and he almost stopped living entirely when they sailed through Chesapeake Bay and nearly got killed by a waterspout.
