A new year’s new Lear

Toronto Life - - Cutlure -

In var­i­ous pro­duc­tions through­out 2018, Canada’s finest ac­tresses will lay claim to Shake­speare’s great male char­ac­ters: Pros­pero, Cas­sius, Mark Antony and Julius Cae­sar. First, the for­mi­da­ble Seana McKenna takes on the ti­tle role in Groundling Theatre Com­pany’s stacked pro­duc­tion of King Lear. In a smart stroke of cast­ing, beloved Whose Line co­me­dian Colin Mochrie plays her wise Fool. The su­perb cast also in­cludes vet­er­ans of both the stage (from Shaw, Strat­ford and Soulpep­per) and the screen (from Or­phan Black, The Call­ing and Let­terkenny).
