Sousatzka - 2017 - Toronto History , Info & More

Elgin Theatre
189 Yonge St. Toronto

Based on the novel Madame Sousatzka by Bernice Rubens, and set in London, England in 1982, SOUSATZKA tells the story of a young musical prodigy torn between two powerful women from vastly different worlds: his mother, a political refugee, and his piano teacher, a brilliant eccentric with a shattered past. These two proud, iconoclastic women must ultimately cross cultural and racial divides to find common ground, or else put the boy's destiny in jeopardy.

SOUSATZKA features a compelling fusion of South African, Eastern European, Classical, Jazz and Contemporary music. It is emotional, humorous, exhilarating and full of hope, and deals with some of the most profound social and political issues confronting our lives today.

GARTH DRABINSKY‘s production of SOUSATZKA is a new musical by three-time Tony Award nominee CRAIG LUCAS (Book) and the legendary composing team of Tony Award winner RICHARD MALTBY, JR. (Lyrics) and Academy Award® winner DAVID SHIRE (Music). The show is choreographed by ten-time Tony Award nominee GRACIELA DANIELE and directed by ADRIAN NOBLE. SOUSATZKA stars Tony Award winner VICTORIA CLARK, Tony Award nominee MONTEGO GLOVER, Tony Award winner JUDY KAYE, and features the Broadway debut of JORDAN BARROW.

WHEN SWALLOWS CRY Comes to The Drama Factory
by Stephi Wild - Jun 4, 2018

Nominated for six Naledi Awards When Swallows Cry interweaves three stories set in Africa, or about African migrants and refugees. One story features a Canadian teacher - initially assumed to be an American - who is captured by a group of bandits in a West African country. He is held for ransom to generate the funds required to develop the region in which he is held. A second story features two Zimbabwean teachers who flee the economic hardships of their country in a boat heading to Fiji where they will not require visas for at least three months. However, the boat ventures into Australian waters and they are held at a detention centre for illegal immigrants, and are threatened with immediate deportation to Zimbabwe. The third story tells of a Somalian who leaves his war-torn country for South Africa, only to experience brutal xenophobic violence that obliges him to seek refuge in America. He obtains a legitimate US visa but is hounded at the port of entry; one of his tormentors is an African America official, a descendant of African slaves, but whose job it is to prevent "undesirables" entering America, and threatening their security. These stories, featuring three actors playing contrasting characters in the three different playlets, are multi-layered and raise numerous themes about contemporary mobility. The stories comment on each other, not necessarily in sequence, but as a whole.
