Kill Shakespeare kills it 

A memorable and entertaining adaptation of a famed graphic novel series.

Daniel Gervais in Kill Shakespeare
  • Daniel Gervais in Kill Shakespeare

I see over a 100 plays a year, and I'm predicting that Kill Shakespeare will stand out as one of the most memorable and entertaining of 2012. It's a live stage adaptation of Anthony Del Col and Conor MaCreery's popular graphic novel series of the same name. Del Col and MaCreery's writing is stylish and clever, and the universe they have created by drawing on some of Shakespeare's most famous lines and characters is engrossing. They bring this writing to life in an exciting show that blends radio-play-style drama, artist Andy Belanger's amazing comic art and original music. I can't imagine a better cast than the combined talents of Halifax's Lions Den and Vile Passeist Theatres. The script requires quick changes in character, extreme bursts of emotion and exquisite pacing, and this cast delivered, as did the crew who produced a technically flawless show. Not to be missed!

To November 4, The Bus Stop Theatre, 2203 Gottingen Street, $20/$15, 8pm (and 2pm on Sunday)

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
