CBC’s Triple Sensation: Master Class

In a total surprise (at least to me), Vancouver actor Andrew Cohen was one of the first eliminated from the top 12 on Monday night’s episode of CBC’s Triple Sensation.

After being coached by the likes of Stratford Director/Choreographer Donna Feore and celebrity Acting Coach Patsy Rodenburg, Cohen and Wylmari Myburgh were the first to leave the competition.

Judging based solely on editing and who was heavily featured on last night’s show, it seems that Glen Mills, David Light and Leah Cogan are the favourites to win.  Light was an early standout, and Mill’s emotional performance of “Soliloquy” (Carousel)  made him a powerful contender.   However, Cogan’s top ranking both at midpoint and at the episode’s conclusion, puzzled me.

Cogan is clearly talented, but whenever a coach/judge pointed out something masterful that she had accomplished, I didn’t see it.  Perhaps it can be chalked up to something lost in translation between live in person to television.  I found so many of the other performers to be far more compelling, albeit in heavily-edited minute-long clips.

That leaves only Burnaby resident Alyssa Brizzi representing BC in the run for the $150,000 first prize scholarship and the Triple Sensation title.

Cohen has already moved on from the experience having recently starred as leading man Gordon in A New Brain (Pipedream) and is currently studying at UBC in the BFA acting program.

Master class continues on Triple Sensation next week in part four of six, Mondays on CBC, through July 27th.

  1. As much as I love being credited for “Soliloquy” that was Glen Mills! Thanks for the shout out though 🙂

  2. Thanks for catching the slip-up . . . and thanks for reading. Last week’s “Proud of Your Boy” was a great choice!
