Dr. Silver: A Celebration of Life

Join us at Toronto’s historic Heliconian Hall to celebrate the life of the mysterious and magnetic spiritual leader Dr. Leonard P. Silver. The festivities promise to be an enchanting experience; a sung-through, psychedelic dissolution into the transcendental power of music. 

Dr. Silver: A Celebration of Life was our inaugural co-production with Outside the March, Canada’s leaders in immersive theatre, created by two of the most exciting and innovative artists in Canadian musical theatre, Anika Johnson and Britta Johnson.

Dr. Silver is a part of The Crescendo Series, a three-year commitment by The Musical Stage Company to produce the work of Britta Johnson and her collaborators.

Dr. Silver was originally commissioned by The Musical Stage Company and Outside the March (FORWARD MARCH). 

Dr. Silver has been developed in part with the Luminato Festival and through The Collaborations at Canada’s National Arts Centre. 

Dr. Silver has been supported in part by the National Fund for New Musicals, a program of National Alliance for Musical Theatre and in part by the Innovation & Exploration Grant, a program of National Alliance for Musical Theatre, with funding from The Alhadeff Charitable Foundation – www.namt.org 

The playwrights acknowledge the assistance of the 2018 Banff Playwrights Lab – a partnership between the Banff Centre and the Canada Council for the Arts.
