DIRECTOR

Razor sharp performances and direction of Evermore Theatre’s DRY POWDER ..

the actors, under director Angela Besharah, handle the biz speak with clarity and commitment. Besharah is especially good at getting the actors to physicalize their performances..

The primary reason to check out Besharah’s production is Liddiard’s go-for-broke performance: she commits, boy does she ever.. Besharah & Liddiard push the portrayal of Jenny daringly but successfully towards slapstick..
— Karen Fricker, The Toronto Star
... a subtle stroke of genius.
— Sailor's Song, Mooney on Theatre
This is the kind of show you walk away from and marvel at the sheer talent in the indie theatre scene in Toronto.
— Echoes, Mooney on Theatre
The Bear floored me. I’m not sure I ever stopped laughing. Consider my appreciation for Chekhov renewed!
— The Bear, Mooney on Theatre
.. director Angela Besharah has drawn searingly intense, committed performances from [her actors].. their performances are so painfully real and so vividly disturbing..
— Echoes, Christopher Hoile, Stage Door
You can’t help feeling like you are seeing the future of theatre.
