Catherine the Great

The Great

Liz and I went to see The Great as part of our yearly subscription to the STC. It was a great (sorry) performance, and I’d strongly recommend going to see it.

I was most impressed by three parts of the show:

  • the young lead actors, Robin McLeavy and Toby Schmitz, were funny and perfectly cast
  • the set, with a rotating room in the middle, was superb at driving the action in several places
  • the on-stage costume changes done by young Catherine (Robin McLeavy) fit so well with the story and kept everyone engaged across scenes.

Well worth checking it out before it finishes on July 13.
