“Juno and the Paycock”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

whew... what a devastating production of "Juno & the Paycock," about an Irish family in the 20s dealing with poverty, labor unrest, the sadness of religious strife and an oafish but jolly patron named Captain Boyle who develops leg cramps every time a job opening arises... he makes the comics' Andy Capp look like a workaholic... jim mezon is simply commanding in this role, evoking great laughter which emphasizes the sadness... and cheers to Jennipher Phipps, 40 year in the company, here playing the grief-stricken neighbor... certainly not a date night, but an exemplar of what the shaw festival does best, get to the guts of great literature...

“Hilariously Funny”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We loved the theatre, our first visit and we definitely will return. We saw When We Were Married, and we laughed lots and left with a great feeling.

“Commenting on theatre only”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

We went to this theatre 2 nights in a row. I doubt that there is a bad seat in the house as the theatre is not very big, and it has a good seating arrangement so you can either see over or around someone in front of you. Acoustics are fine. The ladies' room is small, so plan your use accordingly! The theatre was not visibly handicapped-accessible but I assume that it is. If this is a concern to you, call ahead and get details (we had a bad experience in Dublin with a theatre that said it was handicapped accessible and turned out not to be. It was difficult for my elderly mother to navigate. So we are now highly tuned to this).

“When We Were Married”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

It was an excellent production and very funny and beautiful. The acting was flawless and as always the costumes were perfect. The set was very impressive. They do an old show in an old way and it worked on every level
