Shows that Caught Our Eye in Toronto for the Week of October 28, 2019

Happy Hallowe’en! Blessed Samhain! Feliz Dia de Muertos! I hope you all enjoy the many spooky events going on this week. If you’re as worried about this week’s impending sugar coma as I am, maybe checking out some theatre will curb your cravings for those many mini wrapped treats. After all, you can’t open them in the dark silence of a performance!

Not only are there many great shows whose runs continue this week, but there is something for everyone in the new theatre, opera, sketch comedy and stand-up taking the stage. And – no surprise because it’s the week to celebrate all things eerie – there are some fantastic pieces showcasing all things supernatural and unearthly this week. I – Leanne – am on the job this week of letting you know in red what shows have made my personal ‘Theatre to See’ list this week.

Cheap Theatre in Toronto for the Week of October 21, 2019

MoT’s 5 under $25 for the Week of October 21, 2019.

It’s almost Hallowe’en, and buying all of the candy to give out at the door has done a good job of emptying out my pockets. Especially when I bought it on sale a couple of weeks ago (super cheap!) and somehow an entire box of it disappeared…

Since that happened, I’m happy that there are some amazing options to see spooky Hallowe’en theatre for under $25 all over the city to stretch our theatre-going dollars while satisfying our urge for creepy thrills. Yes – one of these shows is just over $25, so I’m cheating just a bit!

Under the cut are 5 live theatre experiences in Toronto with ticket prices of $25 or less, playing the week of October 21st, 2019. Check out the live shows that will have you loving theatre ‘on the cheap’! Continue reading Cheap Theatre in Toronto for the Week of October 21, 2019

Shows that Caught Our Eye in Toronto for the Week of October 21, 2019

It finally feels like it’s the nose-tingling fall season, and my kids are SUPER EXCITED for Hallowe’en. Both of those things mean that we are definitely knee-deep in the crunchy leaf-pile of Toronto Fall Theatre season. Check out what has caught our eye from the new and fresh works that have fallen this week. Or, go see one of the several shows that previously caught our eye that have had their runs extended. Either way, put on a warm sweater and head out to rake up some amazing theatre this week. It’s Megan’s turn this week to turn a few of our listings red to highlight what has caught her attention in theatre this week.

Cheap Theatre for the Week of October 7, 2019

MoT’s 5 under $25 for the Week of October 7, 2019.

There is so much amazing theatre this fall in Toronto. And, if you’re anything like me, you want to see it all! But all of that theatre can certainly leave a dent in the wallet. It’s a good thing that there are some amazing options to see theatre for under $25 all over the city to stretch the number of shows we can see with the same dollars. Yes – some of these shows have tickets over $25, but they all have seats for under $25 as well. Sometimes the view from the cheap seats is better than up close…

Under the cut are 5 live theatre experiences in Toronto with ticket prices of $25 or less, playing the week of October 7th, 2019. Check out the live shows that will have you loving theatre ‘on the cheap’! Continue reading Cheap Theatre for the Week of October 7, 2019
