BWW Review: THE NEW CABARET Is a Splendid Addition to 'Night Music' Series at Stratford Festival's ForumBWW Review: THE NEW CABARET Is a Splendid Addition to 'Night Music' Series at Stratford Festival's Forum
by Lauren Gienow - Aug 2, 2017

With the 2017 season of the Stratford Festival in full swing, and locals and visitors alike enjoying the glorious theatrical productions on stage at the Festival, Avon, Tom Patterson and Studio Theatres. It is important to note that there is far more than just theatre for audiences to enjoy at the Festival.

BWW Review: THE VIRGIN TRIAL is an Engrossing Treat at the Stratford FestivalBWW Review: THE VIRGIN TRIAL is an Engrossing Treat at the Stratford Festival
by Lauren Gienow - Jul 28, 2017

The second part of a trilogy of plays penned by Kate Hennig is currently engrossing audiences at the Stratford Festival's Studio Theatre. THE VIRGIN TRIAL is a companion to 2015's THE LAST WIFE, which also had its world premiere at the Studio Theatre. This play is set during Elizabeth I's teenage years, when she was the subject of a scandal involving her relationship with her uncle/step-father. Like, THE LAST WIFE, this play takes liberties in terms of historical accuracy, because, quite frankly, we don't actually know exactly what happened behind closed doors. Also like the first play, this one is from the perspective of the women. The performances are brilliant and the writing is clever and witty. This production should not be missed! (more...)

The Stratford Festival's first ever staging of Stephen Sondheim's A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC is happening this season at the Avon Theatre.
