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.

Cheap Theatre – Feature Posting – Progress

It can be expensive to travel to other countries. I just booked a few flights, and my wallet is crying. But wouldn’t you rather save the emotions for yourself, and still get to experience the ideas, motivations and messages of other cultures, right here in Toronto?

Enter Progress. You can check out a more extensive discussion about exactly what it is by clicking here – but all you need to know is that a number of extremely innovative international shows are coming to Toronto this week, and you can see all of them for very, very cheap – some shows are even free! All it takes is a short trip to The Theatre Centre out on Queen West, where all of the shows are playing. But act fast – performances start on Wednesday, run until February 15th, and tickets are going fast!

All in all, you really won’t want to miss Progress!

So check out their website for scheduling and ticket info, and go see some Cheap Theatre!

Shows That Caught Our Eye This Week

It’s easy to think of February as a less-than-awesome month. There are no holidays except for Valentine’s Day (which can be a bit of an unhappy day for a lot of folks, and a very stressful one even for people who are in relationships). But this February, you’re going to have more fun, because you’re going to see a lot of theatre! And these are the shows playing in Toronto for the start of the month. Anything highlighted in red with two asterisks comes highly recommended by our Managing Editor, Wayne.

Live Shows For $25 or Less

Some people don’t like going to theatre because it’s more expensive than the movies. Or so they think. Pshaw, I say to that. Tickets to all of these shows are available for $25 or less. So would you rather go see some big, very loud IMAX movie (that your would probably enjoy more at home, where you can talk over it) or some real, live theatre? I mean, look at how many cool shows there are this week!

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!
