Stratford Beacon Herald - Bruce Urquhart

High-spirited hijinks

“As Smash, Stephen Jackman-Torkoff is a standout, bringing an unbridled energy to the role that’s shared through their expressive physicality.

Smash is a force – often, the author of the roommates’ misadventures – but there’s pain behind their bluster. While Smash could easily have been a one-note comic creation, Jackman-Torkoff also nails the emotional beats, showing the insecurity and anxiety hidden by their playfulness and wit….

Every Little Nookie is a season highlight and proof the venerable Stratford Festival isn’t afraid to take a risk or two.”

Intermission Magazine - Aisling Murphy, Michelle MacArthur, Karen Fricker

Everybody stayed

This review is a conversation with three critics. Below are excerpts from one.

“Karen Fricker: I found it interesting that the audience seemed to really enjoy it, and there were very few walkouts. It’s a long play with an intermission, so people had the opportunity to leave if the story wasn’t jiving with them. But pretty much everybody stayed….

I really enjoyed the performances from Adler and Koensgen. At the beginning of the play, I thought we were slightly in restoration comedy territory in terms of the heightened level of performance, but they found a solid level. I was most interested in them and their journeys and their relationship.”

The Passionate Playgoer - Lynn Slotkin

Derivative, tired...infuriating

“Every Little Nookie is ageist, contradictory to its all-embracing message and full of characters who blather woke soundbites without a sense of character or responsibility. Being irresponsible for ones’ actions and ignoring the consequences of those actions are for someone else to solve.

Every Little Nookie left me cranky.”

The Globe and Mail - J. Kelly Nestruck

Swinging sex comedy for inflationary...

“It’s being marketed as a “sex romp” about polyamory and swinging, but at its core it’s about what really gets everyone hot and bothered these days: real estate prices.”
