This Week in Theatre: Sept 18-25

Well it feels like we were all holding our collective breaths as the theatre season came to a close a month ago. At the same time it seems the time off gave us a breath of release that helped to build up some anticipation. Funny how it does that,huh?

Anyway. As the new season rolls around the corner, here are a few new productions hoping to get a head start on what promises to be an exciting year with many new and great shows.

April 14, 1912:
Theatre Rusticle in association with Harbourfront Centre presents a true story inspired by the life of Harold Bride, Second Marconi Officer on RMS Titanic. As the 95th Anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic approaches, this award-winning ensemble embarks on an expressionistic, ghostly journey, weaving together eye-witness accounts and lighting and installation with Theatre Rusticle's celebrated and inimitable physical style.

Living Tall :
Salesman Jeffrey Weaver guides his audience through the steps of "Living Tall," his high-octane and delightfully strange motivational program that serves as an external character that progressively gets broken down to reveal his true tale of loss and redemption. The HopScotch Collective presents this World Premiere opening on September 19th and running until October 7th at the Tarragon Theatre's Extra Space,.

With A Little Help From My Friends:
Blurring the lines of rock and musical theatre, Acting Up Stage presents an astonishing evening paying tribute to the world's greatest musical artists - The Beatles, performed by some of Canada's greatest musical storytellers in a cabaret setting. One night only at the The Diesel Playhouse Theatre's Cabaret Space. Runs Monday, September 24th, 8 PM.
