Shows that Caught Our Eye in Toronto for the Week of January 13, 2020

The start of this year has been a whirlwind of activity. Last week we dove right back into our regular routine and I forgot just how MUCH we do every week! It’s exhausting, and I am already ready for some much needed ‘Me Time’. What better way to get some of that away from the grind of routing than heading to a live theatre event? And with so many new shows starting this week, we definitely have a lot of options to choose from!

Here to let you know what shows this week have her thinking about some quiet time at the theatre is senior editor Samantha. Check our her ‘red‘ flag shows as she lets you know what has caught her eye and heading out to a theatre seat this week.

For me it has been that weird holiday week. You know the one where you don’t really remember what day of the week it is, and PJs are the outfit of the day… after day… after day? And it has been glorious fun, with the kids playing with all of their new toys. Except the Lego spread all over the carpet. One missed piece at clean-up can ruin your night (ouch!!)

But it’s also time to put on pants and get back to a regular sleep schedule so I can function at work next week (okay… after New Year). And the best way to get motivated to go out is to make some plans to go to the theatre. It’s my week to let you know what has caught my eye, so take a look at my picks in ‘red’. Spoiler alert – it’s pretty family-friendly! It’s a great week to take kids to get some theatre experience!

Mooney on Theatre wishes you all a very Happy New Year! See you next decade!

With school ending for the year at the end of this week, I am in full-on Holiday prep mode. And, two kids at home ramps up the excitement to a whole new level! There is just so much to do to get everything ready for a great family holiday season, that I need to remember to take some quiet time for myself. And the best place for quiet is the theatre!

If you’re like me and want some time off from the bustle of the season, check out one of the shows that caught our eye this week. This week our editor Samantha is letting you know what shows she thinks are noteworthy this week – check out her recommendations in holiday-festive ‘red‘!
