Song and dance man…and Auzzie hunk Hugh Jackman brings his concert show to Toronto’s Princess of Wales Theatre July 5 – 17. With an 18-piece orchestra this musical theatre veteran will surely deliver a great performance.
Stratford Festival in Canada announced its 2012 season but what was more notable was that artistic director Des McAnuff will remain with the festival until 2013, completing a six-year run. In the musical theatre world McAnuff is known for his Tony winning productions Jersey Boys, The Who’s Tommy and Billy Crystal’s 700 Sundays to name a few. For the 2012 season look for Christopher Plummer to return in a one-man show A Word or Two. Also on the bill will be Henry V, Much Ado About Nothing, Cymbeline for the Shakespeare lovers. On the musical front productions of 42nd Street, The Pirates of Penzance and You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown are also among the offerings.
