Tributes to theatre reviewer Jon Kaplan

Toronto theatre reviewer Jon Kaplan died on Friday, April 28.

He was a well-known fixture at many local theatres, large and small, and his reviews were very balanced – if he hated a production, the review usually contained some constructive criticism.  NOW magazine, where he worked for 35 years, has been “flooded with tributes, memories and love” in his honour.  Many theatres published photos of a seat with a “Reserved for Jon Kaplan” sign on it over the weekend.
