Mirvish Productions is the premier name in Toronto Theatre, bringing musicals, dramas, comedies and more to the theatre stage for over 50 years.
This is our last issue of the year — 29 altogether since we began publishing in April. Our goal then was to offer a forum of theatre news and ideas to entertain you while our theatres were closed. We hope we have accomplished this.
In this issue SnL bring you part two of their Holiday Extravaganza. We share with you a new full-length adaptation of A Christmas Carol from the co-director of Les Misérables; we offer you our new time travel tool that goes all the way back to 1963, when the Mirvish family purchased and restored the Royal Alex; and we have a wonderful new music video entitled “All I Want for Christmas is You … to Socially Distance”.
We wish you and yours the merriest of holidays and we hope the new year finds you in good health and spirits.
In many ways 2021 feels like a new beginning for all of us. With many vaccines for the pandemic, we are hopeful for the reopening of many parts of our society, including theatres. But until then, we must all continue to be vigilant and steadfast in keeping ourselves, our families, our neighbours and our fellow citizens safe and healthy.
Meanwhile will be taking January off, but we will return with renewed vigour, enthusiasm and fun on February 2, 2021.
To be continued ...
I hope you and yours are well. This is certainly a very different world than the one we knew at this time last year.
We are now planning to begin the new main subscription season in September 2021, and we will begin the Off-Mirvish subscription season a bit later in the fall.
Our favourite songwriter, Ron Jacobson has done it again: he’s written a new song for the holidays. “Twelfth Night” is an evocative tune, a song that celebrates the greatest gift of all — love.
