A master of the graceful exit
By Kamal AL- SOLAYLEE, Theatre Critic, Page R1
William HUTT was not one to linger. Anyone who saw his farewell performance as Prospero at the Stratford Festival on October 28, 2005, knew that.
His curtain call on that memorable evening was a master class in poise, humility and grace. Everybody expected a farewell speech. He said nothing. A thank you, perhaps? Nope. HUTT took a good, heartfelt look at his audience and co-stars, savoured the moment and took his leave.
In life, as in theatre, HUTT didn't linger. News of his death at the age of 87 came exactly three months after he officially withdrew from the current Stratford season, where he was set to star as Tobias in director Diana Leblanc's production of Edward Albee's A Fine Balance. The man knew when to make his entrances and his exits.
Although this particular and final exit has been anticipated, it still comes as a shock. I interviewed him at the end of 2005, and my most lasting impression was his infectiously youthful spirit. (He was 85 then and handsome as ever.) In a hotel suite in Toronto where he was holding back-to-back interviews to promote the third season of the Canadian television series Slings and Arrows, HUTT showed no signs of fatigue or jadedness. He was there to do a job and was determined to do the best darn job he could.
For most of us, though, it was his job - his calling, really - as a stage actor that we've come to love and discuss and that we struggle to find the right words to describe. Ask any actor, director or critic about HUTT and the first thing they'll cite is his voice. Mellifluous and unmistakably thunderous, it captured the uniqueness of Shakespearean English - a language both musical and violent in texture - more precisely than any of his contemporaries. An American woman sitting next to me at one of his recent Stratford performances told me that she occasionally "watched" HUTT with her eyes closed in order to let his "gorgeous" voice wash all over her. I followed her lead in Act 2 for a few minutes. It worked.
It wasn't just a matter of diction and articulation, either (although he was a master of both.) HUTT brought a feeling of what lies unspoken behind the words and sounds. Although I'm too young to have seen his career-defining years at Stratford and elsewhere in the fifties, sixties and seventies, and can't comment fully on the physicality of his performances, I never felt cheated on that front in the shows I've attended in the past 10 years or so. HUTT used his body with an economy and an awareness of both its life-affirming abilities and its many crushing frailties. Nobody has ever criticized HUTT for overacting - not even when he took an astonishing stab at drag and played Lady Bracknell, not once but twice, in productions of Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest.
Although his turn as Lady Bracknell may have shown his comfort with gender roles, it also confirmed his immeasurably wide range as an actor. Sure, he can handle Shakespeare and other playwrights from the 16th and 17th centuries. But he also had an ear for, and an understanding of, seminal works of modernist theatre as he proved with his performances of Harold Pinter's No Man's Land in 2003 and Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot in 2004 (both for Soulpepper Theatre Company in Toronto).
It's sad to think that we'll never see this level of commitment, versatility and shameless talent on stage again. What softens the blow is that he's leaving behind him a grand theatrical legacy and generations of actors who have worked with him and, if they're lucky and smart enough, have learned what it's really like to be part of Canadian acting royalty. His job is done. Why would he linger?

In loving memory of my husband, George SOLOMAN, born January 17, 1926, died October 31, 1992.
Though his smile is gone forever
And his hand we cannot touch,
Still we have so many memories,
Of the one we loved so much.
His memory is our keepsake,
with which we'll never part
God has him in His keeping
We have him in our heart
- Miss you always, Isabelle, Barry and Bonnie and families.
