Though Montreal Shakespeare Theatre Company's Titus Andronicus has closed, commentary lives on. One snarky anonymous comment following our review read, "I hope everyone who paid 30 bucks is glad the actors an [sic] crew saw none of it." The company's boss, Ace Lopes, responded in a long comment which included this statement: "With a cast of over 30 people and theatre rentals being what they are...does anyone really believe that there is any really [sic] money to be made?" Indeed... But... Is Montreal English-language theatre, outside of the main houses, forever to rely on the kindness/enthusiasm of its collaborators? Discuss.
