Video Round-up: Art-Inspired Musicals
Opening night is just around the corner for Reframed, running April 12-17 at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Tickets are on sale now, get yours before they’re gone!
To get an idea of what to expect from Reframed, we had a look at other art-inspired music theatre pieces. From Sondheim to Ahrens & Flaherty, it seems many of the greats have also drawn inspiration from visual art, sculpture, and photography.
