tion with him for a community theater production of The
Music Man in her hometown of Ottawa. Both were cho-
sen for the chorus. She's been chasing the footlights ever
since.

This is Jennifer's fifth season at Stratford. Favorite roles
include Viola in Twelfth Night at the National Arts Centre
in Ottawa and Lucy Lockit in The Beggar's Opera at
Soulpepper Theatre Company in Toronto.
Her other "major" roles (offstage) are as wife to Hayes
Steinberg and mother to their 3-year-old daughter,
Shoshana.
Seeing Jennifer making it as an actress helped pave the
way for sister Adrienne's career choice and that of their
younger brother, Jonathan, 24, an actor in New York
City.
It's Adrienne Gould's fourth season at Stratford. In past
years, she has played Margot in The Diary of Anne Frank
and Jessica, Shylock's daughter, in The Merchant of Venice.
In addition to appearing in Gigi, Adrienne plays

Jaquenetta, a country wench, in Shakespeare's early come-
dy of manners, Love's Labour's Lost, a satire on men's
behavior in affairs of the heart.
The love of Adrienne's life, onstage and offstage, is
Jonathan Goad, who plays Costard, a clown in love with
Jaquenetta. They live in Stratford.
Adrienne, 28, is a recent graduate of Stratford's
Conservatory for Classical Theatre Training, an intensive
15-week program that ended in December. Of 900 appli-
cants, 13 actors and one director were chosen to participate.
The Gould sisters had a traditional Jewish upbringing
and belonged to an Orthodox synagogue.
While Jennifer and her family make their home in
Toronto now, she enjoys returning to Ottawa and their
former synagogue for the major Jewish holidays.

Better Late Than Never

For veteran Canadian actor Paul Soles, being part of the
Stratford family is like a dream come true — but almost
50 years after he began dreaming about it.
In the late 1950s, when the Stratford Festival first came
into being, Soles, already with some act-
ing success in semiprofessional theater in
nearby London, auditioned for a
Stratford production. The director
politely told the self-taught actor he
wasn't quite ready yet.
Soles proved more than ready when a
tragic set of circumstances catapulted
him into his Stratford debut and the
Paul Soles
demanding role of Shylock in The
Merchant of Venice in 2001. Acclaimed
Jewish director and actor Al Waxman, originally slated for
the role, died unexpectedly five weeks before the play was
scheduled to open.
"No Canadian Jewish actor had ever played the part at
Stratford, and it was going to be a first," says Soles, who
also is Jewish.
In his third season at Stratford, this year Soles plays
Baptista Minola, the father of two daughters, in
Shakespeare's comedy The Taming of the Shrew. Baptista, a
wealthy businessman, insists that a suitor be found for his
difficult and shrewish daughter, Katharina, before he will
allow the sweeter and much sought after Bianca to wed.
This production is set in the American Southwest in the
mid-19th century and couples a rollicking frontier spirit
with the ethnicity of Spanish and Italian people who
were, historically, among the region's prime settlers.
Soles also plays Agrippa in Shakespeare's Antony and
Cleopatra and Priam in Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida.
In addition to the stage, Soles has worked extensively in
television, film and his favorite venue, radio.
Growing up in Toronto in the 1930s and '40s helped
hone the 72-year-old actor's sensitivity as a Jew. Beaches
bore signs saying, "no dogs or Jews allowed," and play-
ground fights erupted with anti-Semitic overtones.
Soles' Judaism is rooted in a strong sense of family. His
father was one of 12 children. Today, when the relatives
gather for Chanukah and Passover, 116 kinsmen show up
for the occasion — and that's just on his father's side. 111
