Traditional arts journalism is in decline. Now more than ever, this independent website and our podcast fill a growing void. We've had over 1.5 million page views, and are grateful that you are here. We rely on readers — and a handful of advertisers who share our values — to make our work possible. When we raised funds for our podcast, The "Performers Podcast," the average donation from people like you was $96. Now we hope you’ll join us in augmenting our coverage of arts in the region by making a one-time donation today.

Director smothers Walkers wonderful...

3 1/2 stars out of 5. “…there’s still a lot of charm and wit to be found in playwright George F. Walker’s wonderfully edgy take on the swashbuckling anti-hero born of Shelley’s early poem. And, in a touch of irony, it also manages to emerge as the most highly theatrical piece in the Studio’s three-play season, despite its age.” (part of a feature story, scroll down)

A little air and the show would soar

3 1/2 stars out of 4.  “…there’s enough dark philosophical fun to keep your attention rapt, and these colourful comic-book characters are given wonderful, consistent performances….Lisman, meanwhile, contributes a successful send-up of virtuous virginity (as she does in Cyrano de Bergerac). Her psychological deflowering by Zastrozzi is the second hottest non-physical sex scene this year at Stratford. (The first being between Masha and Vershinin in Martha Henry’s memorable production of Three Sisters.)
