Toronto Live Theatre 2017

No matter what the state of the economy dictates, history has shown that at times like these, many try to escape the news of gloom and doom by transferring their energy and thoughts into something more positive and entertaining. Live theatre is a great getaway and a sure alternative to taking in a movie. The difference is that you have actors who are taking you on a journey in real time – live and in person.

In the new issue of our on-line magazine CURTAINS UP, we have compiled a comprehensive and condensed a listing of live theatre productions including dinner theatre, dance, comedy, plays, theatre for kids and family, opera, theatre festivals and musicals. You will find that many of these productions are very affordable. As you can see, there is definitely no shortage of stage productions you can enjoy throughout the year. We encourage you to make live theatre-going a part of your social calendar.
