Occasional Utter DelightsSome time ago the CBC Newsworld network decided to bridge the gap between The Two Solitudes (this is real, neither side knows a lot overall about the other), and announced they would have a show on the English Network called "Au Courant". When they announced it ould be hosted by Mitsou Gelinas there was much skepticism in the land.
On the show broadcast this morning she interviewed Michel Tremblay, far and away Canada's most interesting playwright of the last 30 years. It was utterly delightful; and doubtlessly partly because of something I had learned only during her career on this show, which I watch regularly with delight, that she is a granddaughter of Gratien Gelinas.
But forget that - while that did come up, her intereview was Tremblay's. See his plays. I have now seen four or five and all of them have been a delight.
And I have seen now many Mitsou interviews on this delightful show and can only say how delightful it is to find my early skepticism completely refuted by the excellence of her work.
