Acting Up Stage Picks – October 2012

No Great Mischief No Great Mischief

Not a musical, but a play with music! Playing at the Tarragon Theatre, this powerful saga of familial loss and love tells the story of two brothers who seek to reconcile their past. A bitter-sweet rumination on the ties that bind, this evocative memory play takes us from a squalid Kensington Market rooming house in Toronto to Cape Breton’s stormy shores and the deep mines of Elliot Lake.

Until October 21 – Mainspace, Tarragon Theatre – tarragontheatre.com or 416-531-1827

Join host Jennifer Walls and other Toronto musical theatre performers (many of whom have graced the Acting Up Stage Company stage) every Monday at Statlers on Church Street! You’ll see some awesome talent at this weekly cabaret.

The Normal Heart The Normal Heart

Another non-musical pick, but related heavily to our main stage production of Falsettos!
