Donald's Dish - Geoff Dale

“A genuine star has emerged from what is an excellent top-to-bottom company – Yanna McIntosh as a scintillating, seductive yet strangely heroic figure Cleopatra…Ben Carlson is a delightful egomaniacal Octavius Caesar. Tom McCamus delivers yet again”

Broadway World - Lauren Gienow

The two leads, Wyn Davies and McIntosh are excellent as always…Ben Carlson is excellent as Octavius Caesar-bringing layers to what might otherwise appear simply as a cold-hearted conquer….Randy Hughson’s Lepidus is also more drawn out and layered than what audiences have come to expect of this character…Other strong performances come from the incomparable Tom McCamus as Antony’s loyal-until-he-isn’t friend Enobarbus, Daniel Briere’s all-too-loyal Eros, and Sophia Walker who plays Cleopatra’s confidante Charmian.

The London Free Press - Donal O'Connor

“Griffin relies on his excellent cast led by Wyn Davies, McIntosh, Carlson and Tom McCamus as Enobarbus, a skeptic and military associate of Antony’s, to carry Shakespeare’s compelling story of conflicted loyalties and ill-fated romance through to its sobering conclusion.”

The Globe and Mail - J. Kelly Nestruck

Critic J. Kelly Nestruck covers Christina, The Girl King and Antony and Cleopatra in one review, with both shows scoring 2.5 stars. My favourite line in Nestruck’s review refers to Enobarbus’ (played by Tom McCamus) use of euphemistic “adjectives once assigned to women, supposedly ruled by emotion rather than reason. Men are Apollonian; women are Dionysian. Men are from Rome; women are from Egypt.”

The Record - Robert Reid

Critic Robert Reid covers two shows in one review. Although Reid has praise for the Anotony and Cleopatra’s two leads, Geraint Wyn Davies and Yanna McIntosh, his review falls short of high praise. Reid truly enjoyed Christina, the Girl King noting “The production brims with strong ensemble work. Performances shine like jewels.”
