Soulpepper’s Got the Jitters!

March 4th, 2016 0 comments

This is the weekend that Jitters starts at Soulpepper Theatre in Toronto's Distillery District! This remount features most of the wonderful actors who were in the 2010 production: Diane D'Aquila, Kevin Bundy, Mike Ross, Sarah Wilson, Jordan Pettle, and the incomparable Oliver Dennis. There are some great new additions to the cast, too, including Alex Furber, Sophia Walker, and Geordie Johnson as Patrick. Director and friend Ted Dykstra very kindly invited Mary and I to the first reading of the play, and it was splendid! We can't wait to see the show next week. The previous incarnation of Jitters at Soulpepper was really special to us, as it happened while David was very ill with cancer. He went in to watch rehearsals every day, and the Soulpepper folks took such good care of him. It was the last opening night that David ever attended, and Mary's first opening night. Such a perfect show for us at that time, the play David wrote about his adventures in the theatre, a show filled with laughs and love. Last time Jitters played at Soulpepper, the Toronto Star called it "a comedic masterpiece," and the theatre has already added some extra shows due to demand. See it if you can!
