Affecting production at Stratford (Ontario)
1 May 2020 | by raymond-andreSee all my reviews

This filmed Canadian stage production from Stratford Ontario sacrifices some of the beauty of Shakespeare's meter and rhythm for the sincerity of the new world. Colm Feore proves himself once again a national treasure as Lear and Stephen Ouimet is lovely as his fool. Another standout is Jonathan Goad as Kent who brings an unflagging energy to the part. As a fan of the bard and his many film and television adaptations I found this to be a pretty fair mounting of the play.
