Mirvish Productions is the premier name in Toronto Theatre, bringing musicals, dramas, comedies and more to the theatre stage for over 50 years.
Hello from T.O., the Big Smoke, The 6ix!
In this edition of Meanwhile we explore summer in the city. Our Check In From Away hosts visit their favourite hot spots around town and we open up our Archives to revisit what we were doing eight summers ago in SNAIL, the eight-issue Mirvish magazine published back in 2012.
We also have our much-anticipated third instalment of Ghosts of the Royal Alex, complete with a brand new song!
Finally, we check in with Alan Forsyth, our Phone Operations Manager and human encyclopedia of theatre, in our Staff Spotlight.
With a heavy heart Mirvish Productions will mark the life of Brent Carver, one of Canada’s most acclaimed actors, by dimming the marquee lights of two theatres on Friday August 7 at 8PM — the Royal Alexandra, in which he performed his solo show of stories and songs in 1995; and the Princess of Wales, in which he starred as Gandalf in the world premiere production of The Lord of the Rings in 2006. ©Marcus Oleniuk (Toronto Star)
Acclaimed musical theatre star Ma-Anne Dionisio performs “The Bottle and the Song”. The six-part serialized story (available in a podcast) and song cycle (released as a music video) continues today with a new chapter and new song release.
Meanwhile is our weekly e-magazine about theatre-going, the performing arts and all its offshoots delivered to your inbox while the Mirvish Theatres are closed.
