Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, May 10, 1972 THl LETHBRIDOB HERAID 7 Mary, Queen of Scots on Toronto stage JL TORONTO (CP1 Mary, Queen of Scots, stands promi- nent among the tragic figures of history and, on first reflection, seems an unlikely heroine for a musical. However, as brought to life in the Charlotletown Festival Com- pany musical production of Mary, the ill-fated 16th-century queen loses none of her tragic stature. Mary, first performed by the company at the annual summer festival in Charlottetown last year, began a two-week engage- ment at the O'Keefe Centre THE CANADA MANPOWER CENTRE FOR STUDENTS For the extra summer help you need to replace em- ployees on vacation for odd jobs around your home hundreds of stu- dents now available for work Just call ast night before a near-ca- pacity audience that gave icarty applause for every scene, although only a lukewarm ovation at the evening's end. There was the inevitable com- parison with the movie, Mary, Queen of Scots, that makes the point of altering the conflict between two female rivals for the throne of England, Mary and Eliza- beth. Christopher Gore, a 29-year- old American who wrote the book and lyrics for Mary, says he took the approach "that this is her story, not Elizabeth's." "We use the love story be- tween Lord Bothwell and Mary as the central unifying theme rather than the conflicting per- sonalities of Mary and Eliza- beth." KEPT TO HISTORY In this, he has kept closer to the recorded events of history, following Mary's life from the time she left her childhood home in France to return to Scotland as queen, through the intrigues and love affairs that precipitated her eventual fate, death by execution on the or- ders of Elizabeth. Marilyn Lightstone, who ere ated the role, endowed the char acter of Mary with both the dig- nity and joie de vivre that ex- emplified the power and charm history attributes to the queen who was able to retain her Catholic faith in an environment of fervent Protestantism. Uotlnvell was played with gruff roguery by Don McManus. The highly-functional set of simulated grey castle stone, curtained inset and revolving walls was designed by Edward Kolancn of Thunder Bay, Ont. Director Alan Lund's choreog- aphy of Scottish dances and t y I i z e d battle scenes was trongly applauded, although omments were heard among le audience that the show's msic, by Canadian composer- rranger Howard Cable, lacked ny memorable melodies. Herbert Whittaker, Globe and toil theatre critic, says the Dharlottetown production "fills lie big stage of O'Keefe Centre ;enerously with much pagean- ry, resounding speech, trum- leting music and high flourish."
