GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY Set For 2019-2020 Mirvish Theatre Season
The Mirvish Theatre has announced its upcoming 2019-2020 season, which will include Girl From The North Country! Following its West End run, as well as its off-Broadway run at The Public, the show has been rumored to come to Broadway this winter.
The Mirvish season features six blockbuster shows including the Broadway musical HAMILTON, which will have its Canadian Premiere at the Ed Mirvish Theatre from February to May 2020. The other Canadian Premieres are the 10-time Tony Award-winning THE BAND'S VISIT; GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY from writer/director Conor McPherson and songwriter Bob Dylan; ANASTASIA from the duo who gave us Ragtime; and the Tony-winning new revival of HELLO, DOLLY! Two of Canada's leading actors - Louise Pitre and Jayne Lewis - will play Edith Piaf and Marlene Dietrich in the new play with music, PIAF/DIETRICH, which will have its Toronto premiere after acclaimed runs in Europe and Montreal.
The Off-Mirvish Season features three shows, two Canadian premieres: US/THEM, the innovative new work that wowed audiences and critics at the Edinburgh Fringe and at The National Theatre of Great Britain; ROOM, a daring new stage adaptation by Emma Donoghue of her best-selling novel and Oscar-winning film; and the Toronto premiere of INDECENT, Paula Vogel's Broadway sensation.
There are three bonus shows not on subscription: Opera Atelier's brilliant production of Mozart's DON GIOVANNI; the new Broadway production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's CATS; followed by another new production of another Andrew Lloyd Webber blockbuster, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA.
Says David Mirvish: "The new season will see us not only bring some of the greatest titles to Toronto but also have us continue performing two established hits, COME FROM AWAY at the Elgin Theatre and DEAR EVAN HANSEN at the Royal Alexandra Theatre. In all, we will have shows on five major Toronto stages in 2019-20 for a total of more than 2,000 performances, catapulting Toronto into one of the busiest and most diverse theatre centres in the world.
"This 2019-20 season also marks the 100th Anniversary of the Ed Mirvish Theatre. From vaudeville, to film, to blockbuster musicals, this grand venue on Yonge Street has been home to countless forms of entertainment over the century. We look forward to celebrating this wonderful milestone in Canadian theatre!"
