Cheap Theatre in Toronto for the Week of January 20th, 2015

Live Shows For $25 or Less

There’s something special about catching a show for the few days that it’s playing. Sure, there are shows that play for months, if not years – but isn’t it nice knowing that you’re one of the few people who get to see a particular production? This week’s Cheap Theatre listing contains a variety of shows that have short runs. They all cost $25 or less per ticket, so, that’s even more of a reason for you to catch them while you can!
