Comment:        Re: SHK 15.0756 Shakespeare of Canada

In April 1964 the Stratford Shakespearean Festival of Canada (as it was
then called) toured to England and played at Chichester, not Stratford.
  The two shows presented were *Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme* and *Love's
Labours Lost*.  John Colicos was not part of the tour, nor did the
company present *King Lear* in England.  Colicos played Lear in the
Festival's first production of the play, which opened on 17 June 1964 at
Stratford -- this was the second-last of the fourteen roles that he took
at Stratford between 1961 and 1964.  I saw both shows at Chichester in
1964; it was a fine and critically acclaimed tour.
