BWW Review: Soulpepper's IDOMENEUS Resonates Through Jarring Storytelling Photo BWW Review: Soulpepper's IDOMENEUS Resonates Through Jarring Storytelling
by Taylor Long - Mar 15, 2018

'That's not what happened.' Soulpepper's IDOMENEUS tells the story of a famous Greek myth - but plays with the mode of storytelling to create something remarkable. Roland Schimmelpfennig's modern play comes to life in a timeless zone of monochromatic universality in Alan Dilworth's production, designed by Lorenzo Savoini. Using a chorus of voices, the narrative weaves between past and present, fact and fiction - presenting themes that resonate not only within the world of Soulpepper, but within the world at large.

BWW Review: Soulpepper's PICTURE THIS is a Weird, Wacky, Whimsical Farce Photo BWW Review: Soulpepper's PICTURE THIS is a Weird, Wacky, Whimsical Farce
by Taylor Long - Sep 17, 2017

Just when you think you've run out of laughter, PICTURE THIS demands more. Written by Morris Panych and Brenda Robins, Soulpepper's PICTURE THIS is a heap of slapstick, comedic gold wrapped in the packaging of Ken MacDonald's gorgeous, intelligent set. Inspired by Melchior Lengyel's 'The Battle of Waterloo', PICTURE THIS captures the virile hunger of the struggling artist and presents it in a way that is enormously funny.

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.
