CRAFTS | Etsy Craftathon: 3-in-1 Jewelry Workshop
Things are getting crafty at Uniiverse's headquarters this week. The top Etsy sellers of Toronto play host in a series of craft workshops in the week-long Etsy Craftathon. Tonight, Etsy's Justyna Z. offers a course in 3-in-1 jewelry making, leading participants in making their own creations by teaching them about braiding, colour blocking, and making statement pieces. The two-hour workshop will give crafters time to create 3 pieces, with materials all included in the price. Get crafting!
Uniiverse HQ (111 Jarvis Street) 6:30PM $25
MUSIC | Adrienne Pierce CD Release
Vancouver singer-songwriter Adrienne Pierce celebrates the release of her fourth full-length album My Heavens tonight at The Central by performing with her more musically-inclined friends. Based out of New York City and L.A., Pierce brings her Grammy-nominated husband and fellow songwriter Ari Shine to the stages of her native land while on tour, adding local musicians like vocalist Sandra Bouza and folk artist Courtney Lynn to tonight's set list. The album will be on sale at The Central with all proceeds going directly to the musicians.
The Central (603 Markham Street) 9:30PM Free
THEATRE | The Glory of Living
A troubled teen runs away with an older man, hoping to finally have the normal life she has always hoped for but is instead pulled into a gruesome world of prostitution and murder. This Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Rebecca Gilman premieres at Sterling Studio Theatre tonight under the direction of Sophie Ann Rooney for a two-week run. The Glory of Living was chosen as the SST's February performance to open discussion about crime and gun control in North America, with its eerie similarities to the true story of Alvin and Judith Neelley, a serial killing couple from Georgia, the latter of whom is up for parole this month.
Sterling Studio Theatre (163 Sterling Road) 8PM $20
