Strictly limited engagement prior to Broadway

The world premiere of the new musical Sousatzka is based on the original novel Madame Sousatzka by Bernice Rubens. Set in 1982 London, Sousatzka tells the story of a young musical prodigy torn between two powerful women from vastly different worlds: his mother (a political refugee in a strange land) and his piano teacher (a brilliant eccentric with a shattered past). These two proud, iconoclastic women must ultimately cross cultural and racial divides to find common ground, or else put the boy’s bright future in jeopardy.

Sousatzka features a compelling fusion of South African, eastern European, classical, jazz and contemporary music. It is at once emotional, humourous, exhilarating and full of hope – while, at the same time, dealing with some of the most profound social and political issues confronting our lives today.

The show – directed by Adrian Noble – stars Tony Award® winner Victoria Clark and Tony Award® nominee Montego Glover, and is choreographed by 10-time Tony Award® nominee Graciela Daniele.

Tickets: $60 to $175

Eaton Company, whose flagship store was located on Yonge at Queen Street. Discover the lives of Eaton's employees who enlisted in the Great War, as well as those of their families who stayed behind. No longer here to tell the tales for themselves, these ordinary people risked their lives serving in one of the worst wars in modern history. The tour will take place on April 9th, the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.

This opera – the most profound example of French lyric theatre in the 17th century – is a stunning French baroque masterpiece about love, betrayal and revenge. Medea, the powerful sorceress of Greek myth, betrays her country and her family in order to assist her lover Jason in his quest for the Golden Fleece. When she is no longer of use to him, Jason abandons her for a prestigious political marriage. In so doing, Jason has vastly underestimated Medea’s power, and she exacts a terrible vengeance that envelops everyone closest to his heart.
