Stratford Star William Hutt Dies At 87

“A man who could command a stage in any country and who chose to make his career in Canada, William Hutt was a formidable presence at The Stratford Festival since its founding in 1953, appearing in myriad roles from Prospero, Lear and Falstaff to Lady Bracknell in The Importance of Being Earnest. … The stage was his home, and no stages were more familiar to him than those at Stratford where he performed in 130 productions over 39 seasons.”
