These are the plays to see in Toronto for the week of April 3 – 9, 2017.
March 25 - April 9
Nicolas Billon’s Butcher, which starts with the discovery of an old man in a military outfit with a meathook around his neck, earned rave reviews last year at the Theatre Centre. Now it’s back at the Panasonic, with most of the same cast, and returning director Weyni Mengesha.
At the Panasonic Theatre until April 9. For tickets or more information, click here.
LEAR: A Retrospective
April 5 - 9
As part of Harbourfront’s World Stage redux, this show has a short run, but it has a fascinating premises: the show is a theatrical examination of how each time Clare Coulter performed the role of Lear under the direction of Philip McKee, they ended up living the story, instead.
At Harbourfront until April 9. For tickets or more information, click here.
