Get You Free: A Night of Music with Jesse MacMillan and Anna Sudac
Basically, Get You Free, A Night of Music will be a fun night with beautiful music, good feels and lots of laughs.
Jesse MacMillan and Anna Sudac had very similar backgrounds in Toronto's music and comedy communities, but somehow never crossed paths until 2012, when they worked together on a production of Sir John Eh, The Musical. Almost immediately they became pretty much inseparable. At the time, both were living in Toronto, and after falling fairly madly in love and coming to Kingston for one summer, they decided to stay and continue pursuing their individual passions, as well as working together creatively as much as possible.
They have performed at dozens of different events, and put together some very eclectic sets. They have performed at fish frys and hoedowns, weddings and in train cars travelling across Canada, and at semi-annual house concerts in Yarker and Marysville. Anna and Jesse have opened for Ray Bonneville, and they premiered their 20-minute 90s medley as the opening act for WANNABE: A Spice Girls Tribute at the Mansion. A particular highlight of their performing career was singing in the middle of Sydenham Street as part of the Sydenham St Revived Project last summer.
As a result of all this variety, they've fallen in love with songs from a range of musical genres, and made them their own. They've also co-written a handful of songs. The December 12th show at Domino Theatre is a collection of songs and stories from the last four years. Audiences can expect unique interpretations of familiar songs, original compositions and probably some improvised nonsense as well.
Since they met doing musical theatre, Jesse and Anna are looking forward to performing on the set of It's a Wonderful Life.
SEE IT LIVE ... at the Domino!
