D'oh! There's more Machomer in store for Toronto. Writer performer Rick Miller will add two performances of Machomer: The Simpsons Do Macbeth at 2PM and 8PM Sept. 1 at the Queens Quay Centre. A Canadian hit, Machomer returned July 30 to the Premiere Dance Theatre for a run though Sept. 8. Machomer is "85% Shakespeare" with Homer playing Macbeth, Marge as Lady Macbeth and cameos from 50 favorite residents of Springfield, transforming one of Shakespeare's bloodiest meditations on ambition and greed into a one-man comedy tour de-force.
Miller's other credits include Art?, babaloo&ganoosh, Slightly Bent and voice work on "Mona the Vampire" and "Turtle Island." He most recently appeared in the Soulpepper Theatre's production of Present Laughter.
MacHomer runs in repertory with La Ronde. Tickets are $25. For reservation, call (416) 973-4000. MacHomer is on the web at http://www.machomer.com.
