Go see Saint Joan

Meg Roe, Saint Joan, Arts Club, Kim Colier

Meg Roe is wonderful in Saint Joan—kind of like she is in every show I’ve seen her do.

What to see this weekend? That would still be Saint Joan, which is on at the Stanley until November 23. Don’t wait until the last minute though; if there’s any justice in the world, it will sell out.

Director Kim Collier brings the intelligent but talky text to vivid, visceral life. Meg Roe, who’s playing Joan, is one of the best actors in the world—I’m not being hyperbolic—and there’s an embarrassment of riches in the rest of the cast, which includes Dean Paul Gibson, Haig Sutherland, Scott Bellis and Tom McBeath.
