The majority of public artwork on the TTC is to be found inside stations built since the 1970s. Before decorative adornments became a standard part of station budgets, Toronto's subway stops were sparsely furnished. Glossy wall tiles, which on the original Yonge and Bloor-Danforth lines followed a repeating pattern, were the main source of colour.
The first thing you have to know is that tickets for individual shows are not "for sale." JFL42 uses a pass system which, though confusing at first, is pretty remarkable. It's a little complicated for the uninitiated, so I'm here to walk you through it (and share my picks for what to see).
True / Citizenry / September 3-13 / $24
Celebrated playwright Rosa Labordé explores the confining qualities of memory in the Fringe-lauded True, about three sisters who must confront the past when their estranged father unexpectedly re-enters their lives. Boasting a talented cast, Layne Coleman, Shannon Taylor, Ingrid Doucet, Sabrina Grdevich and Scott McCord, and some of the city's best designers, Thomas Ryder-Payne, Trevor Schwellnus and Lindsay Walker, there's a reason this one returns for a remount.
