Tony Nardi Interviewed on CFMB about TWO LETTERS …AND COUNTING and his Montreal Book Launch

twolettersTony Nardi, author of TWO LETTERS …And Counting! (Guernica 2013), was interviewed again on May 29th, 2013 by Ivana Bombardierim of CFMB, a multilingual radio station based in Montreal, Quebec.

Tony is a multi-award winner for his work in film, television and theatre. Tony was born in Calabria, Italy, and is a Canadian actor, playwright, director and producer. TWO LETTERS …And Counting! is based on two actual letters sent to “middle-men” of the Canadian cultural scene: a film/television producer and two theatre critics. Letter One articulates an actor/writer’s struggle with cultural stereotypes in Canadian theatre/film/TV. Letter Two challenges misconceptions about commedia dell’arte by present-day theatre critics and directors.

Joe Fiorito of The Toronto Star says: “Nardi uses dramatic acid to burn the rust off truth, and to blister complacency until it turns into awareness. He takes no prisoners … The questions that troubled him so deeply have to do, not just with identity and cultural stereotyping, but also with the nature of storytelling”. 

Tony discusses his book, the letters, and the Canadian cultural scene, as well as the official Montreal Launch of his book, which took place at the Italian Cultural Institute on June 1st, 2013.
