the best is yet to come...

There is hope for the Toronto Musical Theatre scene!

Back in the 1990's the scene was thriving thanks to Livent and the Mirvishes. So far this century, musicals have struggled to keep a decent run in Toronto. Even the brilliant Mel Brooks show, The Producers barely lasted a year. (Sadly, the Broadway production closed yesterday after a 6 year run.) Hopefully, Dancap will be able to revive the fledgling musical theatre scene. Personally, I can't wait to see Avenue Q, Jersey Boys and The Drowsy Chaperone. Each of these shows have been smash hits on Broadway. There's no reason why they shouldn't enjoy long runs in Toronto. I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens.
