Théâtre français de Toronto’s Singulières (co-presented by Crow’s Theatre) is the sort of show that can be either revelatory or evocatively familiar. If you’re a woman who’s spent a good portion of your life single, the true stories told in Maxime Beauregard-Martin’s thoughtful docu-play will likely ring true in that way that good true theatre […]

A new Canadian play, The Watershed was commissioned as a piece on the theme of ‘water.’ Playwright Annabel Soutar took up the challenge, investigating the topic both literally and figuratively, in order to write a play about what […]

A very stylish and smart production of an intriguing gem of a musical that first premiered in the National Theatre back in 2011, Sedos’ take on London Road overcomes an incredibly challenging book and score and creates something that is touching, funny, uncomfortable and thought-provoking. The premise surrounds the tragic murders of 5 prostitutes in […]

Graham Fleming is one of the only people with two different nominations in this year’s My Theatre Awards.

Documentary-style theatre creation often has a tendency of being too dry, too filmic or too wordy for the stage which requires extended use of body and voice – and, these days, other mediums – to keep audience members engaged.  This is not the case with Awake, a multidisciplinary production by Expect Theatre as part of […]

Walking into The Young Centre‘s Michael Young Theatre from the over-crowded lobby (on nights that feature Seeds alongside Long Day’s Journey Into Night in the Baillie, there’s an extreme claustrophobia leading up to the shows but, much more notably, during the simultaneous and thus wildly unpleasant intermissions), the set of the fantastically popular Montreal import […]
