Acting Up Stage Picks: March 2015

once

Once

Set in modern day Dublin, ONCE is the story of a Guy who gave up on his music—and his love—and the Girl who inspired him to dream again. This irresistibly breathtaking production is performed by an extraordinary all-Canadian cast of actor-musicians who sing, dance and play their hearts out live on stage.

Until May 31 – The Ed Mirvish Theatre, Toronto – mirvish.com or 416-593-4142

Spoon River

UnCovered past star Mike Ross takes the helm in this stunning musical. Not to be missed. Edgar Lee Masters’ seminal poems of the dead are brought to vibrant life in this musical adaptation. Immerse yourself in the world of Spoon River, a slice of rural America, as residents of the town narrate their own epitaphs, telling of their lives, loves, losses, and truths.

Until April 2 – The Young Centre (Soulpepper), Toronto –soulpepper.ca or 416–866-8666


Mouthpiece-Slider

Mouthpiece

Written and performed by Theatre Ad Infinitum company member and performer in Ballad of the Burning Star Amy Nostbakken, Mouthpiece interweaves a cappella harmony, dissonance, text and physicality. Two performers express the inner conflict that exists within a modern woman’s head: the push and the pull, the past and the present, the progress and the regression.

April 17 – May 3 – The Theatre Centre, Toronto – theatrecentre.org or 416-538-0988
