Neptune Theatre's Artistic Director, George Pothitos, can't be accused of doing things by halves as he announced, this morning, a huge season for the House's year.
Included in the roundup are two large-scale musicals, the brilliantly dark Stephen Sondheim work, Sweeney Todd, and the more overtly crowd-pleasing Legally Blonde. Also, at Christmas, will be the musical Elf. Among spanking new productions will be The Importance of Being Earnest.
Smaller works are scattered throughout the year as well. Notably: Raoul Bhaneja's raved-about Hamlet (solo) and a co-pro from Theatre Newfoundland and Labrador (Tempting Providence) directed by the newly appointed artistic director of NAC, Jillian Keiley. Other co-pros include Mulgrave Road's Bingo!, Ship's Company's The (Post) Mistress, The Glace Bay Miner's Museum (with NAC) and Eighteen (Eastern Front).
