Mirvish Productions celebrates 50 years

The theatre world doesn’t often have the chance to celebrate a producer with such staying power as Toronto’s Mirvish Productions.  This season 2013/2014 celebrates 50 years since Ed Mirvish purchased the Royal Alexandra Theatre and over the years turned King Street West into the vibrant theatre district it is today.  This season brings back a favourite, Les Miserable, with a predominately Canadian cast.  Toronto will host the pre-Broadway production of Disney’s Aladdin.  Also on tap is the Canadian premier of the Tony-winner Once, a new production of Cats as well as the world premiere of the “tango rock opera” Arrabal from Toronto native choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys).  It looks like Toronto theatre goers will have reason to celebrate this half century of Mirvish presentations.  For a full list of the upcoming season visit www.mirvish.com.
