“…this final production of Stratford’s 2010 season is also one of its best….McSweeney, obviously excited by this space, makes outstanding use of it in mounting his exquisitely detailed dissection of the manners, mores and monstrousness of a culture soon to be felled by the revolution.”

Robert Cushman, National Post -

Cushman closes his season of reviews with a great read, in the form of a letter. His review is a tribute to Choderlos de Laclos’s novel, Les Liaisons dangereuses, which was composed entirely of letters written by the various characters to each other. Must Read.

John Coulbourne Sun Media -

“Impressively directed by Ethan McSweeny and lavishly designed by Santo Loquasto, this is a compelling production…[McCamus]seduces his audience with the same ease with which he undoes the virtue of the lovely young Cecile.” 5/5 Stars

J. Kelly Nestruck The Globe and Mail -

“McCamus’s sonorous Valmont is indeed persuasive with his passion – and his fight with himself to become somewhat less of a monster makes for good drama. He has real chemistry with Topham’s sweet and sympathetic de Tourvel.” 3.5/4 Stars
