Is this about that post on Reddit from earlier today?

Not a lawyer, but I have some knowledge about copyright law. I didn't see the original post that was taken down, so it's hard to say. Most likely, it is completely legal. Whenever companies file for copyright p

Show That Have Sat Down

Toronto has had several sit-down productions. SIX is a sit-down that is currently running, The Lion King opens one later this year too. They've also had sit-downs of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Dear Evan Hansen, Come from Away, Matilda, Kinky Boots, War Horse, Les Miserables, Hairspray, Mamma Mia, and several others.

That's what I'm thinking. It would make no sense for it to be another tour. It's possible it could be Come from Away (they are just waiting until they announce SIX is closing), but the problem is that

Yeah that baffles me. Edmonton's Citadel Theatre is even putting on their own production of Frozen in February 2025. With Beauty and the Beast starting up next season and Frozen having played just about everywhere, it sounds like the tour is closing up. Fingers crosse

Perhaps lol. I would still have preferred getting Frozen. If Aladdin is any indication, Disney shows sell like crazy in Toronto.

Although I'm not thrilled with Lion King being on subscription, this is a fairly strong season for Mirvish and certainly an improvement over this year's season. I am curious what that 7th show will be.

We’re still waiting for a number of tours from the past few years: Frozen, Beetlejuice, Funny Girl, Company, Moulin Rouge and more.

There is catching up to do on big Broadway shows, I could add several more to the list.

Toronto equally has a track record of looking to take big shows both from Broadway and West End. So wonder if they wo

Any other tours that might be wrapping up after this season? Hadestown, Ain’t Too Proud, Jagged Little Pill, or Tina? Any of the latter 3 I feel can easily move non-equity.

For what it's worth, Tours To You is saying that Hadest

Having The Lion King play in Ottawa presumably at the same time Toronto is doing their second sit-down of The Lion King is certainly interesting. I know there's a distance between Ottawa and Toronto, but still.

My impression is that these are 8 bonus shows being added to the current season (so outside of the main subscription). So, I wouldn't expect anything too significant. Any of the big tours that we still haven't gotten, I would have to think will be co

The rest of my wish list is short but equally as up-in-the air. Am hoping that some of you with clearer crystal balls - if mor influential connections than I - can opine about the likelihood of seeing any of these shows open here before the next Tonys?:

That makes sense, and wouldn't surprise me.

100% agree, and yes. This upcoming year, Mirvish is actually bringing BACK two tours (Les Mis and Aladdin) that already played here 10 years ago. They've never done this before, and the fact two of the seven subscription shows are what are normally &qu

Wonder if Cused Child would have been better off playing at the Royal Alex.

They haven't posted a closing notice, but I wouldn't be surprised if they do post one at some point with the sales being fairly soft. When is it booked for?
