Duo to direct for Stratford Festival

McAnuff, Noble sign on for 2008 season

Des McAnuff (“Jersey Boys”) directs “Romeo and Juliet” and RSC vet Adrian Noble helms “Hamlet” for the 2008 season of the Stratford Festival of Canada, the first slate under the leadership of a triumvirate of artistic directors including McAnuff, Marti Maraden and Don Shipley.

New heads of the org have decided to restore the Bard to the name of the 55-year-old fest, announcing that it will be called the Stratford Shakespeare Festival of Canada beginning in November.

Also on the Bard-heavy 2008 bill are “The Taming of the Shrew,” directed by Peter Hinton of Canada’s National Arts Theater; “Love’s Labours Lost,” helmed by former Stratford a.d. Michael Langham; and “All’s Well that Ends Well” directed by Maraden.

Maraden will also helm a production of Euripides’ “The Trojan Women.” Other non-Shakespeare offerings at Stratford will be German director Michael Thalheimer’s staging of “Emilia Galotti” and Laurence Boswell’s production of Lope de Vega’s “Fuente Ovejuna.”

Casting and further productions, including new works and tuners, have yet to be confirmed. Maraden, McAnuff and Shipley officially replace retiring a.d. Richard Monette at the end of the 2007 season this fall.
