L’Orchestre d’Hommes-Orchestres performs Tom Waits – March 2 to 5th, 2011, Toronto

Now that we have our tickets to see L’Orchestre d’Hommes-Orchestres at The Theatre Centre in Toronto I can finally write and tell you all about it so you can get your tickets now. (Note to ed.: We do have our tickets, don’t we?) The full name of the show is L’Orchestre d’Hommes-Orchestres performs Tom Waits and it’s (they’re) playing on March 2nd through March 5, 2011.

They played in Toronto last year for two sold-out nights so book your tickets now. I suspect this show will sell-out fast. We loved them last year. Here are a couple of excerpts from the review:

  • “From the first bang of the suitcase to the last note of the encore L’Orchestre d’Hommes-Orchestres performing the Music of Tom Waits was fabulous.”
  • “It’s not easy to classify the evening. It’s not a concert, and it’s not a play; it’s a performance of music. As my play partner John said, “It’s Rube Goldberg music”. It’s music you have to watch because so much depends on the sight gags.”
  • “This isn’t your regular run-of-the-mill Tom Waits tribute; it’s a rollicking, sometimes raucous, ride with Tom Waits as the connection between the performers and audience.”

Here’s L’Orchestre d’Hommes-Orchestres’ Facebook page. I can’t wait to see them again. And I promise you’ll have a great evening. It’s not a big venue so book your tickets now.
