DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is nominated in the category of Outstanding Ensemble for the Montreal English Theatre Awards (METAs) 2015
“His Hyde is a representation of the many moods of Jekyll’s repressed id, one of them (James Harrington) even quite noble. Here we get Hyde in love, as he falls for Allie Shapiro’s spirited chambermaid Elizabeth.”
- Jim Burke, Montreal Gazette
"Shapiro is the romantic interest of the doppelgangers and finds herself in the midst of their clashes, as they literally sweep her off her feet. She’s the one character who truly sees past how Jekyll perceives Hyde. Jekyll sees good and evil as black and white, but she and Hyde are living examples that it’s not always the case. Humans are complex,” she says.”
- Heather Soloman, The Canadian Jewish News
