HART HOUSE THEATRE UPDATE

Issue 11, 2017/2018 Season | October 3, 2017
The House has been a-rockin'!
"..just as James King is mesmerizing as Hedwig, so Lauren Mayer is a quiet powerhouse as Yitzhak. Diminutive, swaggers, angry, but a voice like a steel rod. Glorious." - Lynn Slotkin, The Slotkin Letter

"...this was a fantastic production that allowed each part of its composition to really shine. I’m glad that I got a chance to see it, and I highly recommend giving it a watch." - Stephen Lubin, Mooney on Theatre

"...this  Hedwig  and its Hedwig [James King] are urgent, impressive, and unforgettable." - Kelly Bedard, My Entertainment World
