He also found a way to theatricalize Claude Vivier’s haunting Musik Für Das Ende for Soundstreams. Meanwhile at Stratford he directed an elegant yet gut-bustingly funny production of Tartuffe that had up-to-the-minute Trump jokes. For the past couple of decades, my late colleague Jon Kaplan would lovingly compile this list, and he’d run the names by me so we could discuss them. Of course, Jon loyally monitored all of these artists’ careers – sometimes (as is the case with the number-one artist) from their first show. I’m following his rule that to be considered for inclusion, an artist has to have presented at least two shows in the year. “We want to turn on the east end at night,” says Crow’s Chris Abraham at the company’s new Streetcar Crowsnest.

What’s incredible is how effortless he makes his craft look, whether he’s tossing back Tartuffe’s ridiculous mane, bitching out juicy bons mots while wearing a ridiculous wig in The School For Scandal or – most memorably – playing contrasting twins in The Wedding Party. In The Wedding Party, Tom Rooney, here with Moya O’Connell, delivered a master class in effortless acting. (Photo by Guntar Kravis) Expand 1. CHRIS ABRAHAM, DIRECTOR/ARTISTIC DIRECTOR Login/Register With: 3. CHRISTINE HORNE, ACTORHorne got lots of press last year when she wrote in Intermission magazine about not being able to pay her rent at the same time that she was on the cover of NOW Magazine’s Fall Stage Guide and starring in lots of plays. Let’s hope the ecology has changed enough so she can keep giving us performances as varied as her ones this year.READ MORElast_img read more
