When people think of musical theatre and Toronto, far too often they think the only options are great big companies like Mirvish or Dancap, but the truth is there are small companies who are producing great work with affordable ticket prices and fantastic performances.
One of those companies is Angelwalk Theatre, and right now they are presenting Jeff Bowen and Hunter Bell’s [Title of Show]. Musical theatre with catchy tunes, lots of laughs, and all sorts of meta goodness (a show about writing a show about writing a show about writing a show… well you get the idea).
The show is running until Sunday October 10, 2010 at the Toronto Centre for the Arts with ticket prices starting as low as $25. In fact, a limited number of rush tickets are now available for all Saturday Matinee performances for $20 (cash only) at the Box Office.
Check out the details of the show below:
From the producers of the Dora-nominated Toronto premiere of Altar Boyz and Jason Robert Brown’s timeless The Last Five Years, comes the hilarious new musical [title of show]. The Tony Award nominated show runs from September 22 and running until October 10, 2010 at the Toronto Centre for the Arts.
[title of show] is a uproarious new musical comedy that follows two musical theatre writers on a quest to write a musical for the New York Musical Theatre Festival in just 3 weeks. “Delectable entertainment!” raves the The New York Times while Amazon.com calls [title of show] a “bottomless reservoir of fun”. [title of show] follows Hunter, Jeff and their friends on their journey through the gauntlet of creative self-expression. In the span of 90 minutes, they write and perform their show at the festival and learn lessons about themselves as people, friends and artists. [title of show] received a 2009 Tony Award nomination for Best Book of a Musical. With Music and Lyrics by Jeff Bowen and Book by Hunter Bell, this show is above all a love letter to musical theatre.
