Live Shows for $25 or Less
I mentioned this in yesterday’s play listings, but it’s worth noting again – there’s a lot of shows happening in Toronto this week. And it just so happens that a lot of them are rather affordable! Some celebrate the fact that it’s almost Valentine’s Day. There’s a few cool period pieces – and a whole theatre festival on this week! Check them out below. They’re all available for $25 or less! It’s kind of like an all you can eat theatre buffet, to some extent.
