TWELFTH NIGHT Shakespeare in Delaware Park
This is Shakespeare as the man from Stratford intended, a bunch of guys putting on a play with some of them in drag.

PYGMALION Festival Theatre/Shaw Festival
No, this isn’t Henry Higgins and Col. Pickering dancing around a luxury flat with a reformed and recreated guttersnipe.

THE TWELVE-POUND LOOK Court House Theatre
If you are planning on spending an afternoon in Niagara-on-the-Lake at the Shaw Festival, you should go early for the 11:30 a.m. (some days) performance of J.M Barrie’s “Twelve-Pound Look.”

SISTERS OF SWING Daemen College/MusicalFare Theatre
American music has changed and changed and changed over the last two centuries and audiences of the Civil War era probably wouldn’t understand the music of today.

TOP GIRLS Festival Theatre/Shaw Festival
There’s a price to pay for ambition, especially successful ambition.
That’s what Caryl Churchill’s “Top Girls” is about, ambition and the price of success.

THE TAMING OF THE SHREW Festival Theatre/Stratford Festival
“The Taming of the Shrew” may be the most controversial of Shakespeare’s plays, a look at Kate (Deborah Hay) and Petruchio (Ben Carlson).
He’s a rich Italian aristocrat and she’s the older daughter of a rich Italian aristocrat and is considered an impossible human being.

SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER Avon Theatre/Stratford Festival
Old-fashioned farce is becoming rarer in the theater, perhaps because it so often relies on centuries-old stereotypes, you know, rascal servants, dumb aristocrats, country bumpkins.
That’s all true and many people favor avoidance of stereotypes.
The problem is that it can also be very funny.

THE PHYSICISTS Tom Patterson Theatre/Stratford Festival
What would you do if you realized you knew something which could turn the planet Earth into a charred mass of atoms floating quietly in the outer fringes of the Milky Way?

THE ADVENTURES OF PERICLES Tom Patterson Theatre/Stratford Festival
The night I saw Stratford’s production of “The Adventures of Pericles” is an example of the strength of a repertory company.
Evan Buliung was out sick with laryngitis from his lead role as Pericles and that meant the reserves were called in, with Sean Arbuckle moved up from the understudies.
That meant his roles had to be filled from his understudies and down the line.
Still, it worked.

SWEET CHARITY Festival Theatre/Shaw Festival
While musicals can address social attitudes, like “Carousel” and domestic violence,
they can also soften issues, like the prostitution of Fellini’s “Nights of Cabiria” becoming the softened “Sweet Charity” of a taxi dancer who is constantly seeking love while dodging the cash opportunities of the job.

YOU NEVER CAN TELL Royal George Theatre/Shaw Festival
Some things never change, interfering parents and arrogant children.

PETER AND THE STARCATCHER Royal George Theatre/Shaw Festival
The Shaw Festival’s “Peter and the Starcatcher” is a triumph of style over substance and a great show.
If you think in Hollywood terms and the presence of Disney in originally putting this show together makes that inevitable, this is a prequel to “Peter Pan.”

THE LADY FROM THE SEA Court House Theatre/Shaw Festival
For “The Lady from the Sea,” Erin Shields has boiled down Henrik Ibsen’s original to a 90-minute, one act play.
It features unhappy women, domineering men and a failure to communicate across the sexual barriers.
