I love that robe! :)

From July 9-21, Nigel Bennett will be on stage in Wellington, Ontario in John Patrick Shanley's Outside Mullingar. Nigel will be reprising the role of Tony, which earned him a Winnipeg Theatre Award nomination for best performance by a supporting actor when he performed it at the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre last February.

Nigel Bennett in "Designated Survivor"

Nigel recently had a guest role in Designated Survivor. He plays a former benefactor of Kiefer Sutherland's president while he was still an architect. After the president finds out that Nigel's character had withheld information about an indigenious tribe being evicted for land development he seeks a way to stop the project. Nigel and Kiefer Sutherland have a nice verbal sparring match.

The Shape of Water

Finally I saw The Shape of Water in the movie theatre. What a delightful film! A nice change from today's action-packed movies. Instead it was wonderfully nostalgic with a lot of nods towards classic Hollywood. Ranging from Jack Arnold's Creature from the Black Lagoon over Betty Grable to Mr. Ed. The sentence "Bonanza is too violent for kids" was hilarious. Oh those good old times...

The end was totally awesome. And I liked the music so much (in particular Renée Fleming's "You'll Never Know") that I'm going to buy the soundtrack.

And then there was Nigel, speaking Russian all the time, with subtitles. He appears in several scenes. I was torn between watching him and reading what he was actually saying. I definitely need to watch that again.

John Kapelos was supposed to be in the movie as well, but I have to admit that I missed or didn't recognise him. Shame on me! Another reason to watch it again.

Other familiar sites included a teal-coloured Cadillac, although it wasn't a convertible. And I recognised several Toronto locations, such as streetcar tracks, Massey Hall, Cherry Street shore, Gardiner Expressway, and the beautiful Elgin Theatre.
