Canadian Classic Kicks Off Belfry Theatre's Shakespeare Season
by Morgan McPherson
Written in 1988, this production was directed by Ron Jenkins (whose recent credits extend nearly as long as my arm), whose work as a director and a playwright has won numerous awards. The set was colorful and creative, designed to a tee by Camellia Koo. I would like to note here that I have been to two performances in as many weeks with sets designed by Koo, and have adored both. I enjoyed a rather unique view from the balcony and so really got to see some creative maneuvers and set features that those seated on the ground floor would not have been as able to enjoy. From a Cyprian battleground to a graveyard in Verona, Brian Linds' sound design and Michelle Ramsay's lighting complement each other perfectly and do not disappoint.
