Ouimette Triumphs in Chicago

Stratford Shakespare Festival favourite Stephen Ouimette is not back here this year, but this is what critics are saying about his performance in The Iceman Cometh at Chicago's Goodman Theatre. (He stars with Festival alum Brian Dennehy and Broadway veteran Nathan Lane.)

Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
"Although fully realized all the way down the cast list, the detail of these characterizations is most potently on display through Stephen Ouimette's Harry Hope, a character whose personal crisis is so believable and wrenching as to dominate the third act, and a good chunk of the fourth. More than anyone else onstage, the terribly sad Ouimette shows us the warmblooded man that was, or that could still be, if growing old were only easier. It's a stunning performance."
