Shows that Caught Our Eye in Toronto for the Week of February 24, 2020
My partner and I went to a show last weekend and met a wonderful couple. We met in the elevator on the way to the show, and again after the show in the same elevator afterward. It sparked a short but great conversation about shows we had seen, and theatre that we like. There wasn’t agreement in our preferences, but it was such a wonderful, spontaneous conversation! It really reminded me that the theatre community is really an extended family tied together by our love of theatre art.
So this week it’s up to me to let you – my theatre family – know what has caught my personal eye this week. Check out my ‘red’ picks below. And, agree with me or not about my choices, I know that if I meet you in the lobby or elevator we can still easily start up a conversation about our mutual love of theatre.

The last couple of weeks have been pretty gray and overcast. And if you’re like me you’ve probably been struggling a bit with the February blahs. I haven’t had much motivation to get to work on my big stack ‘To Do’s’ that I know I’ve mentioned before. The list that I know you all have too! Family Day weekend was a great break from the usual routine, and shook out the cobwebs (the sunshine helped too!) We even got out to see some theatre – although with so many great options right now it was hard to choose what to go see.
Even though the weekend is over with, you can still pop out to see a show and shake up the routine and get rid of those February blahs! This week it’s up to Megan to let you know what has caught her eye and has her excited about heading out to the theatre. Take a look through the listings below to check out her picks highlighted in ‘red’. We’re sure you won’t be disappointed!

I sat down to do up this post like I have every week since September, and just couldn’t BELIEVE how much is going on this week! There’s a Blockbuster Musical making it’s Toronto debut this week. There are two great festivals. There is fantastic Black History Month programming all over the city. And as always there is loads of amazing new local theatre too! So – for those of you maybe looking for something do to for a special date night (or not!) – there is definitely plenty of choice out there.
With so much going on in theatre this week I don’t envy our editor Samantha the task of picking out what has caught her eye! Check out her ‘red‘ picks in our listings below!

I had one of those weeks. You know the one where the ‘To Do’ list just seems to go on forever and the week doesn’t seem long enough? That week. And this week doesn’t look much better. BUT… no matter how hectic my week is, I know it’s important to take some time for ‘me time’. And the best place for me time? Somewhere that I can turn off my technology, and where when the house lights go down I can sink into another world. So instead of a ‘To Do’ list, let’s focus on a ‘To See’ list!
This week our editor Lin is going to tell you what has caught her eye and is on her ‘to see’ list. Check out her ‘red‘ picks in our listings below!

The winter blahs have hit our house pretty hard this past week. Damp, chilly weather will do that. The cure for the kids is to get them out to their activities like dance class(es), or an indoor playground. The cure for my partner and I is to search for good theatre tickets. And luckily this winter, there is a lot of great shows to choose from.
This week it is I – Leanne – who gets to let you know what is in on stage this week that has me excited about heading into the dark cocoon of a theatre. Check out my ‘red‘ listing of shows that caught my eye!
