We are about half-way through our run of Queen Marie at 4th Line Theatre and so far - so great! I've learned a lot, I mean A LOT throughout this process. The show is a bit of a marathon, especially for the star Shelley Simester who is absolutely incredible as the late, great, Marie Dressler.

So far we haven't been "rained-out" once. We had a minor "rain-hold" during our first preview, but that's it (knock on wood).
Reviews, reviews...Often I avoid reviews until after the show closes (or altogether), but I stumbled upon this write-up by Paula Citron (critic, broadcaster and arts-journalist for The Globe and Mail, Toronto Life & more) and am excited to share her experience of Queen Marie.

Stay cool :)
