Weekend Round-Up

It was a busy weekend for EAP.  With Justin off in Montreal Liza took to the playhouses alone.  Friday night  was the opening of the New Canadian Musical Robin Hood: The Legendary Musical Comedy at Hart House.  The audience was packed and super enthusiastic, which helped keep the pace brisk for this almost three hour odyssey.
The show is running all month long so you can definitely still catch it.  And although it is long it is clever and entertaining too.  Shout out to the cast and production which were both first rate.  Tickets are selling quickly so be sure to click here to get yours now.

The rest of the weekend was spent at Factory for the last weekend of the Next Stage Festival 2013.  It was fantastic, With Love and a Major Organ stole many hearts, perhaps predictably, since it was the toast of Fringe last summer.  What a beautifully poignant and remarkably smart show.  When we missed it at Fringe we were disappointed so it was great to see it this time around.  And if the show is further developed, this 60 minute gem, could easily make the leap to main stages anywhere.  

Afterward, while browsing through the Festival playbill , on the bus ride home I spotted this ad.

So many awesome shows are coming to Toronto stages this season, not the least of which is Studio 180's Clybourne Park. Can't wait!
