by Isabella Perrone - May 28, 2019

In a new production of AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY, director Jackie Maxwell guides a 13-person cast through the highs and lows of the Weston family during a family tragedy. In Maxwell and the ensembles' capable hands, Tracy Letts's delicate balance of comedy and cruelty is presented as fully as possible.

Mark Crawford's BED AND BREAKFAST is a two-man show stuffed to the brim with vibrant, interesting characters, that takes place after Brett (Gregory Prest) inherits a family home in some Ontario small-town and packs up his life in Toronto with his partner Drew (Paolo Santalucia) to open a bed and breakfast.

What happens when a street performer is thrown into a court theatre troupe? In Soulpepper's production of the 1991 David Hirson play, the result includes a lot of body humour, monologuing, and deeper-than-expected political commentary.

BWW Review: THE JUST is Compelling and Hauntingly Relevant
by Jason Carlos - Mar 13, 2016

The world premiere of Bobby Theodore's translation of THE JUST by Albert Camus is now playing at Soulpepper. Directed by Frank Cox-O'Connell, this new adaptation of the 1949 French play set in Russia, follows the paths of five socialist revolutionaries plotting terror attacks against the Grand Duke of Russia in the early 1900s. The ensemble cast led by Raquel Duffy (Dora) and Peter Fernandes (Voinov) also features Katherine Gauthier, Diego Matamoros, Gregory Prest and Brendan Wall.

BWW Review: Crow's Theatre THE SEAGULL
by Dennis Kucherawy - Jan 26, 2015

The production of Chekov's 'The Seagull,' now on at the Berkley Street Theatre, is an uneven disappointment. It fails to engage. Like Theatre 20's production of Stephen Sondheim's 'Company,' presented in the same venue last year, this Crow's Theatre production does not deliver on its exciting promise.

BWW Reviews: 'TARTUFFE' Sparkles With Comedy And Drama
by Catherine Kustanczy - Aug 15, 2014

Underneath the riotous comedy of Moliere's 1664 play Tartuffe is a tough family drama examining ideas of trust, power, and hypocrisy. Soulpepper Theatre Company's new production (on now through September 20th at the Young Centre) underlines these themes while providing plenty of laughs and a smart, contemporary take on a classic work.

BWW Reviews: 'Of Human Bondage' Explores Love and Obsession
by Catherine Kustanczy - Apr 25, 2014

William Somerset Maugham's monumental novel 'Of Human Bondage' has never had a stage translation —until now. Adapted by award-winning playwright Vern Thiessen, and produced by Soulpepper Theatre Company, 'Of Human Bondage' is currently on at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts through May 17th.

BWW Reviews: Soulpepper Enchants With Idiot's Delight
by Catherine Kustanczy - Feb 12, 2014

Mixing love and politics is always a dicey business, even - or especially - on the stage. There's a challenge in portraying both with the kind of depth and authenticity they both deserve. World War One veteran and Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Robert Sherwood managed the mix beautifully in his award-winning work 'Idiot's Delight.'

BWW Reviews: Soulpepper's ANGELS IN AMERICA an Ambitious Triumph
by Kelly Cameron - Aug 31, 2013

Soulpepper's production of Angels in America is a massive undertaking, their biggest show to date and incredibly ambitious. That said, it is a risk that appears to be paying off for the Toronto based company. The show is triumphant - a heartfelt examination of humanity, sickness, politics, AIDS and more. It forces us to consider our own place in our community, and the lengths to which we will go to help our fellow citizens? Are there still angels in America? Maybe not, but the production on stage at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts is certainly heavenly.

Photo Coverage: The 2013 Dora Awards - Ceremony and After Party
by Kelly Cameron - Jun 26, 2013

The 2013 Dora Awards took place in Toronto on Monday June 25th at The St Lawrence Centre for the Arts. To accommodate demand, the Bluma theatre was also opened up for guests and the awards were live-streamed via 'Doratron'. As in previous years, there was a glamorous VIP ceremony pre-show followed by a post show street party that closed down Front Street. A record number of Doras were given out, with Young People's Theatre's CINDERELLA the runaway hit of the evening with seven awards. BWW is thrilled readers photos from the evening.
