Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Debuting Wednesday, October 6, 1976, on the CBC, the Canadian drama anthology Front Row Centre offered a mix of original dramas, stage adaptations, and remakes of plays seen on other TV anthologies. Highlights included Sarah, a portrait of Sarah Bernhardt starring Zoe Caldwell, which subsequently matriculated into a successful one-woman show. Also presented were such chestnuts as Pirandello's Six Characters in Search of an Author, featuring an impressive U.S.-Canadian cast. The final telecast of Front Row Centre occurred on March 15, 1978.
