Ghazal Azarbad, who starred as Viola in Shakespeare in Love and was in the ensemble for Taming of the Shrew, is cast as Salena — a “chipper border guard” — in It’s A Wonderful Christmas-ish Holiday Miracle.
Directed by Chelsea Haberlin, the new Canadian comedy by Marcus Youssef opens next Thursday at the Goldcorp Stage at the BMO Theatre Centre; its run ends Dec. 22.
The production is an Arts Club Silver Commission project and is Youssef’s second, after 2013’s How Has My Love Affected You?
Christmas-ish also includes Glen Gordon, Jennifer Lines, Nicola Lipman, Matreya Scarrwener and Jovanni Sy.
