3 of the top shows at the Stratford Festival

Every week thousands of people visit this site for reviews and information about theatre, in and around, Stratford.
Stratford Festival, Most popular shows,

Below are the most popular shows review, by page views, on the site for the period Monday Aug. 10th to Sunday Aug. 16.

With three new shows opening it’s no surprise that “Oedipus Rex” dropped off the list. It was replaced by newcomer to the list “The Alchemist.”

Directed by Antoni Cimolino and starring Festival favourites Jonathan Goad, Scott Wentworth, and Stephen Ouimette in his only appearance at Stratford this season, the show is receiving excellent reviews.
