“What Love can do, that dares Love attempt.”

Kelly Bedard from My Entertainment World
“McBay is a female Romeo and that’s marvellous for all sorts of reasons but, more than being a female Romeo, she’s an excellent Romeo and that is simply far more important.”

Jon Kaplan from NOW Magazine
“McBay’s Romeo is passionate and clear in her language and feelings”
“Tepper, Hrymak and Cox are also a pleasure to watch and listen to, and Adrian Shepherd gives an interestingly oily quality to Paris, who wants to marry debutante Juliet.”

Jeremy Gardiner from MooneyonTheatre
“This production brings new perspectives to a well-worn favourite and the result is astonishing.”

Preview: Life With More Cowbell
Romeo and (her) Juliet is a powerful contemporary urban interpretation, beautifully staged and truthfully acted. Go see this.”

With a steady stream of Shakespearean productions going up in Toronto, it’s easy to catch one of The Bard’s works on stage. But finding a production with a fresh perspective, bold casting choices and an eye for adapting a very old play so it’s relevant today — now that’s a little harder to find.”
