Upcoming MTI Shows for Toronto - 3/06 HAIRSPRAY
JONATHAN RANDALL PRODUCTIONS
3/10-3/20/2011
HAIRSPRAY delighted audiences by sweeping them away to 1960's Baltimore, where the 50's are out -- and change is in the air.nbsp; Loveable plus-size heroine, Tracy Turnblad, has a passion for dancing, and wins a spot on the local TV dance program, "The Corny Collins Show." Overnight she finds herself transformed from outsider to teen celebrity. Can a larger-than-life adolescent manage to vanquish the program's reigning princess, integrate the television show, and find true love (singing and dancing all the while, of course!) without mussing her hair?

Upcoming MTI Shows for Toronto - 3/06 THE FANTASTICKS
SOULPEPPER THEATRE COMPANY
2/7-3/26/2011
Talk about a time-proven audience-pleaser! "Try To Remember" a time when this romantic charmer wasn't enchanting audiences around the world. "The Fantasticks" is the longest-running production of any kind in the world, and with good reason: at the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers. The result is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time. brbrWith its minimal costumes, small band and virtually non-existent set, "The Fantasticks" is an intimate show which may be performed in virtually any space, engaging the audience's imagination and showcasing a strong ensemble cast. Its moving tale of young lovers who become disillusioned, only to discover a more mature, meaningful love is punctuated by a bountiful series of catchy, memorable songs, many of which have become standards.

In vignette after hilarious vignette, we are introduced to "those good and crazy people," his married friends, as Robert weighs the pros and cons of married life.

Upcoming MTI Shows for Toronto - 3/06 SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD
ANGELWALK THEATRE
3/29-4/17/2011
Says the author of this gripping revue, ?it?s about one moment. It?s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice, or take a stand, or turn around and go back.? Newcomer Jason Robert Brown (composer-lyricist of the critical smash ?Parade?) has had the whole theatre community talking about his blend of savvy showmanship and exciting contemporary sound for years, starting with this revue. brbrBrown transports his audience from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge 57 stories above Fifth Avenue to meet a startling array of characters ranging from a young man who has determined that basket-ball is his ticket out of the ghetto to a woman whose dream of marrying rich nabs her the man of her dreams and a soulless marriage. These are the stories and characters of today, the songs for a new world.

HIGH PARK CENTENNIAL MONTESORRI SCHOOL
10/8-10/8/2011
A delight for children to perform, Seussical is now one ofnbsp; the most-performed shows in America!nbsp; In this fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza, Tony winners Lynn Ahrensnbsp; and Stephen Flaherty ("Ragtime," "Once On This Island") have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a bignbsp; imagination--Jojo. "Oh, the Thinks You Can Think" captures the show's spirit of imagination, as the colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.brp/ppThe story centers around Horton the Elephant, who finds himself faced with a double challenge--not only must he protect his tiny friend Jojo (and all the invisible Whos) from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him, the only one who recognizes "his kind and his powerful heart." Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant, in a story that makes you laugh and cry. /pFor complete information on this and othernbsp; Ahrens and Flaherty shows, as well as linksnbsp;to purchase CDs, vocal selections and other publications, please go tonbsp;a href="http://www.ahrensandflaherty.com/"www.AhrensandFlaherty.com/a.

Upcoming MTI Shows for Toronto - 3/06 CAROLINE OR CHANGE
ACTING UP STAGE THEATRE COMPANY
1/21-2/11/2012
Playwright Tony Kushner (Angels in America) and composer Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie) have elegantly crafted this bold and uniquely poignant new theatrical work. Tesori's skillful and varied score of gospel, soul and Ramp;B, enlivens this nearly sung-through musical.brbrSet in 1963 in sleepy Lake Charles, Louisiana, Caroline, or Change centers its action on the Gellman family and their African-American maid, Caroline. "Nothing ever happen underground in Louisiana / 'Cause there ain't no underground in Louisiana / There is only underwater." Caroline informs the audience at the beginning of the show, and Caroline herself is underwater, drifting through her life, nearly paralyzed by her circumstances - a single mother of four working in a service job to a white family. Caroline spends her days in the basement laundry room, with the Washing Machine (a sultry Caribbean blues singer), Dryer (a fiery Ramp;B singer), and radio (a Supremes-like trio), with an afternoon visit from the young Gellman son, Noah, who is just as isolated upstairs in his home as Caroline is downstairs. A fragile, yet beautiful friendship has developed between Noah and Caroline since his mother's death. Noah's new stepmother Rose, unable to give Caroline a raise, a tells Caroline that she may keep the money Noah leaves in his pockets. Caroline balks, and refuses to take money from a child-but her own children desperately need food, clothing and shoes...Does she or doesn't she?brbrKushner brings his remarkable talent to the book and lyrics-there are no easy choices for the characters to make, and each role is fully realized, complicated and deeply human. The thunder of the civil rights movement and John F. Kennedy's death is distant, yet reverberates deeply through the script, provoking all characters to see their lives in a new light and either embrace or reject the larger social changes that are in motion. The most surprising choices are made by the children, Noah Gellman, and Caroline
