Cheap Theatre in Toronto for the Week of January 13th, 2015

Live shows for $22 or Less

It’s cold. It’s really, really, cold. But hey, we live in Canada – if we never went out when it was cold, we’d never go anywhere. Except for the summer. But hush. In any case, if you want to get out of the house to see some Cheap Theatre, these are some shows playing in Toronto this week for $22 or less per ticket. There’s opera, there’s dance, there’s puppets, there’s Into The Woods, and there’s Chekov! What more could you ask for?
