Overview

In its third season, this acclaimed series continues to mine dramatic and comic gold from the trials and tribulations of a dysfunctional Canadian theater troupe, both onstage and off. Struggling with the unfamiliar burdens of success, the New Burbage Theatre Festival mounts two ambitious productions: Shakespeare's King Lear and East Hastings, a contemporary musical about a heroin-addicted hooker with a heart of gold. Artistic director Geoffrey Tennant (Paul Gross) coaxes a legendary actor out of semi-retirement to play Lear. But with plenty of personal baggage, he doesn't so much play the part as live it. Meanwhile, the festival's resident bean counter (Mark McKinney) joins forces with the musical's flamboyant director (Don McKellar) to create an unlikely hit. Special guest stars include award-winning actor William Hutt of Canada's Stratford Festival, and indie-film star Sarah Polley. Extras include interviews with Gross and Susan Coyne, bloopers, deleted and extended scenes, and much more.

'Slings and Arrows' stands as one of my favorite "contemporary" television shows of all time. Season Three serves as the series finale and is near-flawless in its portrayal of differing approaches to theatre. I especially enjoyed the juxtaposition the musical 'East Hastings' and 'King Lear,' which clearly shows how musicals tend to trump straight theatre regardless of quality or ingenuity. Paul Gross is magnetic as his character desperately tries to salvage his production and still retain the substance of the Bard's play. Overall, 'Slings and Arrows' deftly recreates the intimacy of the theatre for the T.V. screen and shows its audience that accessibility and quality can coexist if given the chance.

Slings and Arrows season 3 is hysterically funny at times and is great entertainment. Geoffrey is desperately trying to hang on to the artistic merit of Shakespeare and traditional theater while Richard and company try to litterally take over the theater and the whole operation.But in the end Geoffrey and the cast come together to portray Lear for themselves, their art, and for Charles who is dying and his last wish is to portray Lear one last time.
