The Performers Podcast

Apr 26, 2016

Brooke is an award winning actor who, when she was in her teens, launched her career by working as a production assistant at the Shaw Festival, often driving actors to and from Toronto.

She has an expansive career but I decided to focus our chat on her solo performance "Trudeau Stories."

She met Trudeau at the National Theatre School of Canada where she was studying acting.

They shared a dance at the school and their cheek to cheek moment sparked a relationship that lasted years. Brooke documented the relationship with Trudeau in a journal and in 2007 created the solo performance, "Trudeau Stories" based on her time with Trudeau.

We talk about her time with Trudeau and how she developed the solo show.
