Plummer, James set to costar in 'Tempest'

TORONTO — The Stratford Shakespeare Festival has announced principal casting for its 2010 season.

Chilina Kennedy, who played Maria in Stratford’s 2009 smash, “West Side Story,” will reteam with her director on that project, Gary Griffin, to play the title role in “Evita.” Playing opposite her is Juan Chioran, also starring in John Doyle’s staging of “Kiss Me, Kate.”
