Sometimes shows run for what seems like ages – in fact, the Lion King musical has officially made more money than any piece of entertainment in history. Some other shows only play for one night. And this week’s Cheap Theatre honours those – here’s a list of shows playing in Toronto this week that are on for one night only! And they’re all $25 or less per ticket! So go take advantage of your opportunity to see these shows, before it’s too late!
