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: Cullen scores the biggest laughs in zany Dickens spoof Special

Toronto - Charles Dickens’ works are so often viewed as boring, stuffy and antiquated these days, many don’t realize that his contemporaries actually saw him as a master of high and low comedy. Old Boz himself might even have enjoyed “Twist Your Dickens”.

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

Toronto - The third entry in a trilogy is often the weakest one. Think of “The Godfather Part III”, “Return of the Jedi”, “The Return of the King” – and now, if this rule counts for indie theatre too, add George F. Walker’s “The Damage Done”.

Review: Married Toronto comics Baram & Sneickus keep the laughs going Special

Review: Latest Second City Toronto revue tackles some thorny issues Special

Review: Updated take on Ibsen classic has fresh new meaning in T.O. Special

Toronto - You may think there’s nothing new to see in Henrik Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House”, or that it lacks the shocking, revolutionary quality that it had in 1879. Well, get ready to view the play in a different way if you catch the ongoing Toronto remount.

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

Review: The Force is with Ross, as ‘One-Man Star Wars’ returns to T.O. Special
