Cinematic theater at its best
9 February 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

all I can say is when will see this kind of theater on the screen again? The acting was divine and the production quality filled the screen beautifully. Every detail from the cast led by plummer was full of emotion and visceral power.

The audience I was with thrilled to every moment. This is the future of entertainment for all ages. Bravo to Stratford and Cineplex. What is next?

If you spend the time to let the performances and text wash over you, you find yourself in a the very best theater has to offer. I spent countless hours in theater in London and New York and this ranks with the most wonderful memories I have. The mix of Shaw's wit, the bravado of Plummer and sensual character of James is simply breathless.
