Tarragon Theatre Presents AND SLOWLY BEAUTY..., Beginning 2/27
Tarragon Theatre will present the Toronto premiere of And Slowly Beauty . . ., a Belfry Theatre/National Arts Centre English Theatre co-production directed by Michael Shamata.
The show runs February 27 to March 31 in Tarragon Theatre's Mainspace (with previews beginning February 20). Tickets range from $27-$53 (inclusive of HST) and are available by calling the box office at 416.531.1827 or by visiting www.tarragontheatre.com.
Tarragon continues its long tradition of presenting English translations of outstanding French-language plays with this work by Quebec City's Théâtre Niveau Parking Artistic Director Michel Nadeau, in collaboration with Marie-Josée Bastien, Lorraine Côté, Hugues Frenette, Pierre-François Legendre, Véronika Makdissi-Warren and Jack Robitaille, translated into English by Maureen Labonté.
When Mr. Mann wins tickets in an office draw to a modern version of Anton Chekhov's The Three Sisters, he ends up going alone as his family is busy elsewhere, even though he rarely goes to the theatre. But in those few precious hours watching the play, something unexpected stirs inside of him. And Slowly Beauty . . . tells the story of "the transformative effect of theatre (and beauty) on a perceptive - albeit average - middle class, middle-aged man. A love letter to art and the poetry of life."
