Very funny play; loved the show. Great theatre; not a bad seat in the house. I predict the Foster Festival will join The Shaw Festival & The Stratford Festival as a major attraction in Ontario.
A wonderful venue to highlight and introduce new works of Canada’s most prolific playwright. Beautiful intimate performance space with great sight lines. Not a bad seat in the house. The team is first rate!!
We went to see a new Norm Foster play called Renovations for Six at FirstOntario PAC. Norm Foster is always good, but, this time he outdid himself with a very funny play that most of us can identify with. The acting was magnificent.......everyone was perfect in their parts.
I have went to a number of the festival productions. The acting is outstanding! The dialogue is outstanding! It makes for an outstanding night!
This is the second year that we have visited the First Ontario Performing Arts Centre to see a play at the Foster Festival. Norm Foster's plays are funny and sweet, and you always come away feeling good.
Just saw Lunenburg with friends and family. We all loved it! It was funny and moving and the acting was excellent. So glad we went. A brilliant evening.
Do yourself a favour and get tickets to this brand new Norm Foster play. I loved it - and so did the others we went with.....But seriously, don't miss this play. Each of the 5 actors is superbly cast and they play off each other perfectly. A 10 out of 10 hit!
"Come Down From the River" has to be my favorite Norm Foster play to date. It is like peeling an onion as it addresses layers of topics such as homosexuality, homophobia, racism, misogany, orphanism, missed opportunities, teen pregnancy, abandonment, family breakups, unfaithfullness, death and yet all interjected with so much mirth. This is a very human play with a very realistic plot and a beautiful message exposed once the onion is all peeled.
The Foster Festival had two world premiers this summer and I was able to see "Renovations for Six" - Norm has not missed a beat this this new play - his 59th. Add this festival and this theatre to your summer fun.
If there is one thing that really disappoints me about going to the Norm Foster Festival is the simple fact that more people don't take advantage of such a great event.
