Review: Strong ‘Lear’ in Toronto’s High Park brings women to forefront Special

Review: ‘T2 Trainspotting’ is a pitch perfect exercise in nostalgia Special

Review: Compelling drama ‘Liv Stein’ relentless in English-language debut Special

Toronto - “Liv Stein” is like an edgier “All About Eve”, set in the classical music world, with a climax that takes cues from “Saw”. If that description is hard to believe, it suits a play about how the desperate believe anything they want to be true.

Review: Soulpepperʼs ʻThe Last Wifeʼ is a Tudor tale for our times Special

Review: Soulpepper reimagines ʻWonderful Lifeʼ as a postwar radio play Special

Review: George F. Walker completes Bobby and Tina cycle on mixed note Special
