Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 12, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD Wednesday, February 12, 1975 New approach to Shakespeare Young director keeps promise By JAMES NELSON WINNIPEG (CP) Robin Phillips' first production with the new young company of the Stratford Festival looks like something fresh from the fashion pages of Playboy 'magazine. The words are Shakespeare's, the two gentlemen ,of Verona, and the :play is a comedy of 17th cen- tury loves. But the sets and and the acting style .is Fifth Avenue Modern, if that term isn't already old .hat. .The play opened a month spring tour here Mon- day. It will swing across >estern Canada and then to Ottawa and Montreal before settling into the Avon Theatre at Stratford, Ont., this summer. Phillips, the 32 year old English actor and director, chosen last year to succeed Jean Gascon as head of the country's biggest theatrical enterprise, promised a new approach to Shakespeare. And he gave it with a flair to the first night audience that failed to fill the seat Playhouse Theatre. Headliners in the show are veterans of Stratford festivals and other professional theatres of Canada: Stephen Russell and Nicholas Pennell as the two gentlemen, and Mia Anderson and Jackie Burroughs as their loves, Julie and Silvia. Bernard Hopkins and Eric Donkin, as the two gentlemen's servants Speed and Launce, had the principal comedy roles. But star billing must also go to Crab, the mongrel recruited from the Kitchener, Ont., Humane Society to play Launce's faithful dog. He made his stage debut not only with aplomb, but with a sense of comic timing that would make any comedian weep with envy. Playing Shakespeare in modern dress is something the staid old Shakespeare festival has rarely done. But Phillips sees the play as the work of the young SALE: Thurs., FrL, Sat.

Russell as Valentine and Pennell as Proteus dribble a basketball in the opening scene, Valentine in red leather short shorts. Speed arrives pushing a bicycle. Julia appears in a beach robe with sun glasses. Silvia arrives turning a cartwheel. The Duke of Milan, played by Douglas Chamberlain, sports a black velvet lounge suit and chrome trimmed sun glasses. The forest band of outlaws are a gang of wayward youths, grinning through what may be their pot haze. Even dear old Sir Eglamour, Richard Curnock, is as modern as today a Colonel Saunders in white suit and panama hat. And the song from Shakespeare's text, who is Silvia? What is she? Is given a .soft rock beat. Through all of this, the words are Shakespeare's. The opening line, "cease to per- suade, my loving would seem better suited to the scene if it was: "Buzz off, buddy."

CBC Toronto make big '600-600' VANCOUVER (CP') "They say it was a terrible boo boo in a local Canadian Broadcasting Cor- poration official said today, explaining how a week old CBC national newscast was shown in British Columbia at 11 p.m. Monday. Reg Jessup, a CBC spokesman, said the National is fed directly to B.C. from Toronto via satellite. "At the network VTR centre in Toronto, the wrong tape was punched he said. "As word got back to them, they punched up the right one." The first National included speculation on Edward Heath's chances in the British Conservative leadership race and then was signed off by Lloyd Robertson, CBC news announcer, "that's the news for Monday, Feb. 3." A Vancouver announcer, Harvey Dawes, immediately apologized for the error and the correct newscast then was shown. A second apology followed the delayed Feb. 10 newscast. The national is taped in Toronto at 11 p.m. MUSHROOMS VALUES Mixwill Housi COFFEE 1 1-lb.pkg J09 SHREDDED WHEAT RED LEAF SOFT MARGARINE Lib. pkg.
