great live, but not on video
18 November 2002 | by (Mississauga, Ontario) – See all my reviews

I saw this play live many moons ago when I was in my early teens. This was one of Ross Petty's yearly pantomine productions held in Toronto over Christmas. The event is excellent and certainly maintains a family focus...the actors know their audience and display the appropriate level of wit and charm. Unfortunately I have to say that this play is intended to be seen in person, and looses most of its character being show on TV (as most plays do). I'm not sure if they are still married, but world famous ballerina Karen Kain was Ross Petty's wife at the time of this filming.
