Review: ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’ scores in High Park with unique choices Special

Review: ‘Twelfth Night’ in High Park loaded with fast-paced fun Special

Toronto - Now this is what a Shakespeare comedy should be. Canadian Stage’s “Twelfth Night”, which opened last Friday, is so much delirious fun that it will make you forget all the boring academic blather you heard about the Bard in Grade 11 English.

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

Toronto - It’s 2017, and it’s beyond time that the women of the acting world got to walk in the footsteps of William Shakespeare’s great tragic heroes. Canadian Stage’s new “King Lear”, with Diane D’Aquila in the lead, makes a strong case.

Review: ‘Hamlet’ in Toronto’s High Park scores with strong lead, energy Special

Toronto - How do you scrunch “Hamlet” down to ninety minutes without killing the plot or losing too many of the great soliloquies? Sounds like an impossible task, but Canadian Stage manages to pull it off in a surprisingly solid High Park production.

Review: Fast-paced staging fires up ‘All’s Well’ in Toronto’s High Park Special

Toronto - “All’s Well that Ends Well” is a famous title, but it’s not one of William Shakespeare’s better-known plays. This year, Canadian Stage is tackling this rarely remounted work with a wide comedic onslaught – mostly to its advantage.

Review: 'Comedy of Errors' takes simple approach in Toronto's High Park Special

Toronto - With an implausible plot about mistaken identity and bawdy puns, “The Comedy of Errors” may be the Shakespeare play that's closest to being a “Three's Company” episode. Thankfully, Canadian Stage's new production doesn't pretend it's much more.

Review: ‘Caesar’ in High Park makes bold choices; not all of them work Special

Review: CanStage tries to soften 'Titus Andronicus' brutality in Toronto Special

Toronto - Not that I'm a fan of Trigger Warnings, but if any Shakespeare play really needs to be preceded by one, it's “Titus Andronicus”. Murder, rape, mutilation, cannibalism, racism — this early Bard tragedy is a grim celebration of meaningless atrocity.

Review: Toronto's High Park is the perfect setting for 'As You Like It' Special

Toronto - Canadian Stage's annual Shakespeare in High Park has become a respected Toronto summer tradition, and this year, the Bard's pastoral comedy “As You Like It” is a fine match for the High Park Amphitheatre's outdoor setting and young audiences.

Review: Toronto High Park production attempts to tame Shrew's misogyny Special

Toronto - “The Taming of the Shrew” remains one of Shakespeare's most problematic and debated comedies, in its endorsement of male-dominated gender politics from four centuries ago. Is it possible to adapt the text in a way that's acceptable in 2013?

Review: Toronto's 'Macbeth' in High Park lacks tragic feeling and scope Special

Toronto - Nothing undermines a Shakespeare play like a tragic hero who can't arouse your sympathy. And “Macbeth”, in which the title role is a murderous usurper, particularly requires a lead who can charm empathy from an audience, in order for it to work.

Review: Toronto's 'Dream' full of high energy, mixed performances Special

Toronto - Shakespeare in High Park marks its 30th season this year with the comedy that launched this annual Toronto tradition in 1983, “A Midsummer Night's Dream”, but the new production takes many unusual risks – many of which pay off.
