Mirvish Hosting Free Event: Meet the Creative Team of ARRABAL, 1/27

Mirvish Productions announced today they will host a free event on January 27 at the Toronto Reference Library, where guests will have the chance to meet the creators of Arrabal, a new musical set to make it's world premier in Toronto this February.

The event, which is free, will take place at 7:00 PM and will feature the Toronto Star theatre critic, Richard Ouzounian, interviewing the creative team.

Arrabal is an explosive story told entirely through dance and the music of multiple Academy Award® winner Gustavo Santaolalla (Brokeback Mountain, Babel) and his band Bajofondo.

Using a modern tango dance vocabulary never seen before, director Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys, Memphis) and choreographer Julio Zurita create a dramatic vision that is emotional, sexual and powerful. The show will feature a book written by Tony Award® nominee John Weidman (Contact).

Arrabal, based on a true story, is about a women who enters the underground world of Buenos Aires' tango clubs and discovers the violent history that took her father and disrupted a nation. The show will feature a live band and performers direct from Buenos Aires.

Tickets to this free event are available at EventBrite. The Toronto Reference Library is located at 789 Yonge St, near the intersection of Yonge and Bloor.

Alan is a third year undergraduate student at York University, in Toronto. He has had a passion for the performing arts ever since he saw the original production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast at the Princess of Wales Theatre. Alan has eleven years of intensive dance training under his belt, and in 2006 was the Canadian National Ballroom Champion in his age category.

Alan first started blogging about theatre in 2011 with his now defunct blog, Broadway Toronto. In March 2013, Alan joined the team at BroadwayWorld Toronto and continued his foray into arts journalism. In February of 2014, Alan became the Senior Editor for the Toronto division of BroadwayWorld.com – and since then has expanded the regional coverage to include much of Southern Ontario, as well as many of the smaller professional theatre companies in the city.

A long term theatre fan, Alan is grateful to be a part of the Toronto arts community in any capacity.

“I’m incredibly fortunate that I’ve found a way to be involved with our arts community in the position that I have. The Toronto theatre community is made up of some of the kindest and friendliest people I know – and I look forward to serving the community by continuing the high standard of coverage expected of BroadwayWorld.”
