Featured GLAMAZON: Matt Murray

GLAMAZON Matt Murray not only sings & dances, he is also producing and directing a new play! 

When it comes to talented individuals who can sing, dance and pretty much do the dishes at the same time; only one name comes to mind: MATT MURRAY!

Matt will be welcomed into our sisterhood of GLAMAZONS! at next Monday's PRIDE EDITION of GLAM! but I was just so impressed by his magificentness I had to introduce you all to him. You see beyond his amazing abilities as a singer (which will make you fall in love with him if you haven't already!) Matt is also skilled beyond our wildest fantasy.

Sure there is his bedroom antics that are well documented in illiterate circles, but what I'm talking about is his upcoming production of "REMEMBER, MAGGY?" at this year's Toronto Fringe Festival. You see Matt, working with his mother, helped write the piece that he is now also directing.

Stepping off the stage, and bringing his mother's original story to life through their shared words, Matt is producing and directing what is shaping up to be one of Fringe's hidden gems. I haven't had the pleasure of seeing the production yet (no one has, it's brand new!) but what I have heard, read and know about Matt, this will be one of the best put together, most creative and well thought out pieces ever.

So if you go to see only 1 Fringe play this year go see REMEMBER, MAGGY?....You know that GLAMAZONS always deliver.


For more information on REMEMBER, MAGGY? check out the Toronto Fringe website at: or check it out at one of the listed times below.

And don't forget to catch Matt and Ken Lindsay as the join the sisterhood of GLAMAZON's at this years GLAM! Pride Edition, taking place MONDAY, June 27th @ 8pm - 268 Augusta Ave.
