COMEDY | An Evening With Robin Williams
Legendary actor and comedian Robin Williams sits down with Canadian comedian David Steinberg for a chat in front of a Toronto audience tonight at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts. The Academy Award-winning actor will discuss the absurdities of life with Steinberg, who is known for having appeared on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson 130 times. Tickets to see the 61-year-old Williams are on the expensive side, but are worth the hefty price tag considering the rarity of his tours.

Visser, who has written several books, will give an illustrated talk on footwear as an extension of her research. Tickets to the lecture and reception, which Visser will attend, are $50. Reception tickets allow attendees to preview the latest exhibit, Collected in the Field, with museum founder Sonja Bata before it opens to the public.
