Personal Quote:

People sometimes come up to me to say, "You were so good as ....," and I think, "Oh, this time, please let it be Lear, or Prospero, or James Tyrone [in "Long Day's Journey into Night"]," but no, it's always, "I absolutely loved you as .... Lady Bracknell [in "The Importance of Being Earnest"]." (from a 2005 interview with CBC News)

Trivia:

After 39 years at the Stratford Festival in Canada, Hutt has announced that this season will be his last. His final appearance will be in Shakespeare's "The Tempest" in the role of Prospero. See more »
