BEST OUT­DOOR THEATRE

NOW Magazine - Best of Toronto - - Stage -

SHAKE­SPEARE IN THE ROUGH CanS­tage may have the big­ger site in High Park, but Shake­speare in the Rough of­fers the most in­ven­tive sum­mer Shake­speare in town. For most of its dozen years, it’s per­formed in the east end’s Withrow Park, us­ing two mag­nif­i­cent trees to set off the main act­ing area, with the per­form­ers work­ing lit­er­ally within reach of view­ers. But over the years di­rec­tors Dawn Marie McCaugh­erty, Diana Kol­pak, Sue Miner, Michael Waller and San­jay Tal­war have ex­panded the stage to take in any park vis­tas we can see, lit- er­ally open­ing up the Bard’s fic­tional realm to in­clude the world of to­day’s Toronto.
