Shakespeare In High Park Double Bill: Macbeth & The Taming Of The Shrew

    For the first time in more than 20 years, Canadian Stage presents two Shakespearean productions at the High Park Amphitheatre (1873 Bloor St. W.), pairing Shakespeare's powerful tragedy, Macbeth, and one of his earliest comedies, The Taming of the Shrew.
  Considered one of Shakespeare's most compelling and powerful tragedies, Macbeth tells the story of a general's battle with ambition, the temptation of power and his struggle to retain his grasp on his humanity.
  The Taming of the Shrew is one of Shakespeare's most controversial plays – a battle of the sexes situated in a materialist, superficial society. The story follows the romantic entanglements of two sisters: Katherina (Sophie Goulet), notorious for her scolding tongue, is a quick-witted and headstrong woman who refuses to conform to standards of femininity, while her younger sister Bianca (Jennifer Dzialoszynski) is her opposite - quiet, compliant, and agreeable.
  Frustrated by the swinish men who populate her world, Kate vows she'll never wed. Bianca has suitors by the truckload, but is forbidden to marry until her older sister has. Bianca's situation seems hopeless until Kate meets Petruchio (Kevin MacDonald), a lost soul with a gambling problem and a wit that rivals hers.

June 26 - Sept. 1   High Park Amphitheatre (1873 Bloor St. W.)  Performances run on alternate nights from Tuesday through Sunday at 8:00 PM with gates opening at 6:00 PM    |    Admission: As always, this favourite summer tradition is pay-what-you-can, with a suggested contribution of $20.

Kim's Convenience

   Soulpepper Academy alumnus Ins Choi's hilarious and touching debut play set in a Regent Park Korean convenience store was the smash hit of Soulpepper's 2012 season. The journey of a fractured but loving family confronting the future and forgiving the past is a Toronto classic in the making.

Entertaining Mr. Sloane

   A shocking, savage comedy from Joe Orton (Loot, Soulpepper 2009; What the Butler Saw, Soulpepper 2010), Entertaining Mr. Sloane pits Sloane, a brooding, dangerous lodger, against his hosts: the desperately motherly Kath and her conflicted brother Ed. As Sloane prowls the house, his charm works on everyone but it cannot help him shake his dark past and shadowy impulses.

Great Expectations

   One of English literature's greatest coming-of-age stories, Great Expectations follows the orphaned but resourceful Pip, who grows from a blacksmith's apprentice into a London gentleman, always attempting to live up to the expectations of the beautiful but scornful Estella, the haunted, spurned Miss Havisham, and his mysterious, shadowy benefactor.

Anything Goes

   Winner of three 2011 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Revival and Choreography, one of the greatest musicals in theatre history, Cole Porter's musical comedy is sailing to Toronto.
  Starring critically-acclaimed actress Rachel York as Reno Sweeney and directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall. The New York Times calls it "MUSICAL-COMEDY JOY" and USA TODAY hails it as "GLORIOUS and EXHUBERANT!"
  When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention get tossed out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love…proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Peppering this timeless classic are some of musical theatre's most memorable standards, including "I Get A Kick Out Of You," "You're the Top," and of course, "Anything Goes."
