Frame by Frame
Robert Lepage, in collaboration with Choreographic Associate Guillaume Côte, is bringing to The National Ballet of Canada a multidisciplinary production that explores the life and work of legendary Canadian filmmaker and animator Norman McLaren. “Incorporating and interweaving several different media, the ballet is both an evocation of and inquiry into the world and imagination of Canada’s most uncategorizable and accomplished, yet elusive, artists.” The production will run from June 1st through 10th at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, and tickets are available online.
“Acclaimed Broadway choreographer and director Josh Prince has created a fresh revival of the greatest high school rock musical ever written, sending Grease back to its roots on the gritty streets of 1950s North Chicago, while incorporating the most beloved songs from the film in spectacular new arrangements.” The musical will run from May 24th through June 17th. Check here for dates/times and to purchase tickets.
The event is also hosting a contest. On Thursday, May 10th at 6 p.m., five winners will be randomly selected and contacted through Messenger or email. Winners must respond within one hour, or the prize will go to the next selected winner. No purchase necessary to enter, and there will be no reimbursements.
“La Bête is a modern comedy of comedy of classical insanity. When the Royal grows weary of their theatre troupe, actors Elomire and Valere fight for survival, as art squares off with ego in a riotous theatrical showdown for the ages.” La Bête will run through June 22nd at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts. Tickets are available online.
Motown: The Musical
“Motown The Musical is the true American dream story of Motown founder Berry Gordy’s journey from featherweight boxer to the heavyweight music mogul who launched the careers of Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Smokey Robinson, and many more. Motown shattered barriers, shaped our lives, and made us all move to the same beat.” Tickets are available now. Check online for both individual and group rates.
The Best is Yet to Come Undone
“The Second City crashes into the modern world in this brand-new comedy commute down the hyper-conscious highway. An all-star cast weaves in and out of the danger zone, tackling our generation’s minefield of crushing clichés and relatable revelations. Don’t miss this unflinchingly honest laugh-tacular… with a magic touch you have to see to believe.” The performance will be held on Tuesdays through Sundays now through July 31st. Tickets start at @47, and Dinner & Show packages start at $54. Student and group discounts are also available. Check the website for more information and to purchase tickets.
