Musical Stage Company Will Bring Performances to Toronto Porches This Summer With PORCHSIDE SONGS

The Musical Stage Company's celebrated outdoor cabaret series returns this summer, bringing music into Toronto communities, backyards, and front porches. Four musical duos will tour around the GTA, creating music in the streets and providing space for communities to gather safely. Following strict guidelines from Toronto Public Health, each 40-minute cabaret features exceptional Canadian talent, incredible setlists, and a promise for a night to remember.

Purchase an intimate concert for your friends and neighbours, and the company will take care of the rest.

PORCHSIDE SONGS will move forward once Toronto enters the 'Grey Zone' of Ontario's Framework for COVID-19, ensuring a minimum requirement of 10 people safely gathering outdoors. Should any concerts need to be canceled or rescheduled due to new or changes to the COVID-19 Toronto legislation, guests will be contacted and bookings will be honoured at a later date.

The lineup so far includes:

SAD LADY SONGS!

Conceived and Performed by
Sara Farb (she/her)

Sara Farb and Britta Johnson bring you a captivating concert, celebrating their love of songs by, for, and about complicated women. They'll perform original music, including work from their upcoming musical KELLY v. KELLY, as well as beloved pop and folk songs by masters of the sad lady music genre. Sara, who was last seen in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway, and Britta, a composer and songwriter heralded as "Canadian musical theatre's next great hope," have been friends and collaborators since 2014 and ironically find the most glee while making sad lady music.

With an acoustic playlist that includes everything from Beatles to Barbra, the Epsteins will have you singing along, reminding us all that family isn't just an important thing - it's everything.

A CRACK IN THE WALL

Jewelle, currently on pause from Broadway as part of the original cast of the Tony Award Winning Best Musical HADESTOWN, and Evangelia last seen in BILLY ELLIOT and LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS at the Stratford Festival met only a few years ago but have been connected for many more.
