"Outrageously entertaining" --NPR
Winner of 13 Gemini Awards and showered with critical acclaim, this darkly comic Canadian series follows the fortunes of a dysfunctional Shakespearean theatre troupe, exposing the high drama, scorching battles, and electrifying thrills that happen behind the scenes.
Paul Gross (Due South) stars as Geoffrey Tennant, the passionate but unstable artistic director of the New Burbage Theatre Festival. Haunted by the ghost of his predecessor (Stephen Ouimette), he struggles to realize his creative vision while handling touchy actors, a jittery general manager (Mark McKinney), a pretentious guest director (Don McKellar), and his own tempestuous romance with the festival’s leading lady (Martha Burns). The backstage bedlam mirrors the onstage angst as Geoffrey directs three of Shakespeare’s masterpieces--Hamlet, Macbeth, and King Lear--one in each season. Guest stars include Rachel McAdams (The Notebook), Colm Feore (Chicago), Sarah Polley (Go, The Sweet Hereafter), and renowned Stratford Festival actor William Hutt in one of his last performances.
A must-see for theatre and Shakespeare buffs. If you are in the theatre, you'll find the day-to-day operations of this fictional theatre painfully, hilariously on the mark. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Pinkdama

|Subtitles / Captions ?||
I'd like also to know if there are subtitles. In fact, I WON'T BUY IT before I know that there are.
It is a simple information, very obvious one. They should always make this clear. BTW, today it is a lack of respect not to add subtitles, since there is people who can't ear but would be able to... Read More
