A new year’s new Lear
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).
