On August 14th, 2003, Toronto was sent into chaos when the largest blackout in Canadian history left millions stranded in the dark and unable to reach or connect with their loved ones.

Inspired by real events, Blackout depicts three stories of connection that unfolded when the city was dark and strangers banded together to find the light. A new Canadian musical by two of Canada’s most exciting voices, Blackout is a story of hope, resilience and community.

Originally developed through The Musical Stage Company’s innovative musical development initiative Launch Pad, a selection of this new work was first seen in 2019 as part of REPRINT.
