Fortunate Son: Good Performances But A Story You Already Know
This one’s a big sigh. Two talented actors (Michael Armstrong as Cal, Drew Staniland as Justin Trudeau) giving excellent performances, and a nice set – but the script feels generic, like a made for TV special. There isn’t a single real surprise just a lot of verbal tennis. And it feels like we’ve seen this before.
It’s the day of Pierre Trudeau’s funeral, and Cal a faithful aide and political mover wants Justin to capitalize on the momentum of his eulogy for his father.
They battle around a bit and well… check your history book/internet if you don’t know what happened.
(Or see the show, the actors are after all very good.)
